England defender Phil Jagielka expecting tough game in Warsaw on Tuesday
Phil Jagielka is expecting much more of a challenge from Poland than England faced against San Marino on Friday night.
The centre back was rarely troubled by the Sammarinese as Roy Hodgson’s men cruised to a 5-0 World Cup qualifying victory at Wembley.
Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck scored a brace apiece and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain completed the scoring with his first England goal.
And now Jagielka and co travel to Warsaw to take on the Poles in the latest Group H clash.
Jagielka said of Friday’s game: "Three points in the bag, five goals scored and none conceded, as far as we're concerned it was a good professional job done.
"We knew what kind of a test we were in for and we got through it okay - is probably about the right word - and we knew that Tuesday is probably going to be a lot more of a test.
"It was all about a clean sheet from the defensive point of view and for the front men to create and score goals and get some confidence heading into Tuesday.
"We're expecting a much more difficult game on Tuesday night."
England will be without Theo Walcott, Frank Lampard and Ryan Bertrand but Jagielka believes the Three Lions are well stocked in midfield to cope with the trio’s loss.
He said: "Frank's done well for England, especially recently, so we will be missing him.
"But if you look at the other night's game, Michael [Carick] and Tom [Cleverley] did fantastically well and we've also got our captain to come back, so cover for Frank not being here is looking really good at the moment."
