Poles, England battle injuries

London, October 14, 2012, Reuters:

Poland will be battling against injuries while England will be looking to extend their long unbeaten record against the Poles when the two renew their World Cup rivalry on Tuesday.

Poland coach Waldemar Fornalik is likely to be without captain Jakub Blaszczykowski, as well as first-choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, defender Lukasz Piszcek and midfielder Eugen Polanksi as they seek their first victory over England since their only success in 1973.

Roy Hodgson's new, youthful England, who went top of Group H on Friday with a 5-0 win over San Marino at Wembley, will be without Szczesny's Arsenal club mate Theo Walcott, injured after five minutes against San Marino, but will have skipper Steven Gerrard eligible again after suspension and in line to win his 99th cap at Warsaw's National Stadium.

Midfielder Frank Lampard, who has a calf injury, and defender Ryan Bertrand, who is unwell, would not be fit for Tuesday.
