England had dominated the majority of the game at Wembley, taking the lead after 19 minutes when Harry Kane shot at home from the penalty spot Things took a turn for the worse for Gareth Southgate’s side, however, when Stones allowed Jakub Moder to level in the second half

Stones dragged on the ball and Polish midfielder Moder stole possession before shooting at home after a quick exchange of passes

The victory took England to nine points in three games, two ahead of Hungary in second with Poland on four points

England lacked any sort of penetration or offensive momentum in a stale opening, but suddenly found additional equipment with Sterling’s pace causing trouble for Poland’s three-man backline and pulling the penalty which allowed the opening of the match

The Manchester City striker picked up the ball in midfield and leapt forward, leaving the Polish defense behind in his wake before Michal Helik slipped from behind and caught him on Achilles

Kane stepped in to kick the ball down the middle and become England’s all-time top scorer with 10 goals there

The Poles did well to reach half-time without conceding again, with Sterling failing twice when chances opened up in front of him and Kane pricking the palms of Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny with a raspy effort

England were in full control but gave Poland a way back into the game when Stones lingered on the ball and allowed Moder to fly

The Polish midfielder traded passes with substitute Arkadiusz Milik and fought off Nick Pope, the first goal the England keeper had conceded in his first seven appearances in England

The goal seemed to attract the attention of England’s attack and the hosts worked for the rest of the game

Maguire, however, came to their rescue when he latched onto the Stones knockdown and knocked home from eight yards away.
