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.
