Harry Kane set a new record as England fell behind to beat Poland 2-1 in their final World Cup qualifying game.

Captain Kane gave his side the advantage from the penalty spot, meaning he has now scored more goals of this variety than anyone for England. However, a mistake at the back of John Stones allowed Poland to return to the game. Fortunately, Harry Maguire saved all three points late.

The World Cup qualifying campaign started with two out of two wins for England. The goal was to keep that momentum going, but hard work was put into it.

England have only made one change from their last game, with Ben Chilwell replacing Luke Shaw at left-back.

The lead came soon after, when Raheem Sterling was brought back into the box. Kane converted from 12 yards to become his country’s all-time leading scorer in penalties with 10.

Sterling continued to see a lot of the ball and entered the box a few times. However, he couldn’t get a shot after hesitating at the last moment.

England made it through the half with their lead intact, but Poland got back into the game after the break.

An opportunity presented itself when Foden won a free kick on the edge of the box. He picked it up himself, but disappointingly hit it straight into the wall.

Gareth Southgate had yet to make a substitution in the final 10 minutes. However, just as it looked like the night would end in frustration, Maguire offered the goods.

After a corner, Stones directed the ball into the box. Center-back Maguire hooked up and shot home on the half-volley to reestablish the lead with five minutes remaining.

This meant England maintained their perfect qualifying record after three games.
