Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has warned England that Poland are coming to Wembley to play and that they will not be a pushover on Tuesday when the two teams play a World Cup qualifier that England need to win in order to book their place in next summer’s final in Brazil.
Poland lost all hopes of qualifying after losing 1-0 to the Ukraine in Kiev Friday night, but will be playing for pride against England following the devastating loss.
“We go to England now,” said the Borussia Dortmund striker.
“We know we have a lot of fans out there who will come to the game. We don’t stand a chance of going through, but we want to go to Wembley and at least allow our supporters a little fun. For sure we won’t be favourites.”
Team captain Jakub Blaszczykowski added: “It doesn’t matter that we only have honour to play for, as matches at Wembley are always very important to us.
“There are sure to be many Polish fans there, and we want to thank them with a good game and the right result.”
One of the most feared strikers in Europe, Lewandowski is troubled by the way his team struggled in their Group H matches.
“Sometimes I wonder exactly what we are missing,” Lewandowski said, according to Polish sports newspaper Przeglad Sportowy.
“I am thinking in particular of a few draws in the matches we should be winning. There are moments when it seems that everything is going in the right direction.
“I don’t have the right word about what should be changed. Against Ukraine it seemed that we created more chances and we played well, but it is not important. In qualification, victories and points are the most important things, not the style of play.”
