England beat Paulo Sousa’s Poland 2-1 at Wembley Stadium with a decisive goal from Harry Maguire, five minutes from the end. A goal from the Manchester United central that allows the team led by Gareth Southgate to remain one hundred percent victorious in qualifying for the World Cup 2022.
England took the lead on 19 minutes in a penalty converted by Harry Kane to punish Michal Helik for a foul on Sterling in the area. It was the tenth penalty for the Tottenham striker for the national team, where he already has 16 goals scored in 12 qualifying matches.
Poland, even without Lewandowski, injured, reacted well and reached the equalizer at the start of the second half, on 58 minutes, with a goal from Jakub Moder, Milik’s pass, after a tremendous mistake by John Stones.
The Manchester City central ended up redeeming himself at the end of the game, as it was he who made the deflection that left the ball at the mercy of Maguire in the goal that won England five minutes from the end.
With this goal, England secured the third victory in as many games and, with 9 points, already leads Group I, ahead of Hungary (7 points), Albania (6), Poland (4), Andorra and San Marino (both still without points).
