iBet: England should at least get a draw in Poland
Poland v England, Warsaw, kick-off 8pm
Lay Poland at 3.6 to 1
Back Croatia and Belgium in a double (pays around 4/5)
Poland were not involved in a qualification game on Friday and instead played a friendly against South Africa. The game finished 1-0 to the Poles, but they were booed off at half time after a lacklustre performance and by all accounts there is little confidence in the team after a very disappointing Euro 2012 finals on home soil. Poland do have a top quality striker in Borussia Dortmund’s Robert Lewandowski, but he only scores once every three games for his country and lack of a supply line seems to be the issue. England were far from convincing against San Marino and the 5-0 scoreline was a major result for the bookmakers, as there had been a big gamble on Roy Hodgson’s men to cover a -5 handicap. Poland are 49 places lower in the Fifa rankings and England should at least get a draw.
Wales’ win over Scotland means both teams are more or less out of the World Cup qualification running, and they may both find themselves out-classed in their away games to Croatia and Belgium. The double pays just short of even money.
