London:

England got off to a confident start in their World Cup qualifying campaign when they defeated Poland 2-1 on Wednesday. Striker Jermain Defoe celebrated his first England start with a superb goal in the 37th minute. Poland, however, equalized with Maciej Zurawski finding the goal just after half-time and the fears of a repeat show of the draw in Austria came back haunting when England had lost a two-goal lead. As David James, after a disastrous last match against Austria watched from the bench, the English went into the lead once again with the Poles scoring an own goal. England managed to keep the scoreline at 2-1 and are now joint leaders in Group 6 with Austria.
