The stadium roof will remain closed for the re-run of England v Poland in Warsaw
The stadium roof will be closed for this afternoon's World Cup qualifier between England and Poland in Warsaw.
The failure to close the roof on Tuesday caused problems following a day-long deluge which forced the match to be postponed for 20 hours.
The roof was eventually closed after the match was called off, but opened again earlier today to take advantage of the bright and sunny conditions in an attempt to dry the playing service.
England coaches Ray Lewington, Gary Neville and Dave Watson attended a meeting at the National Stadium today, where it was confirmed the roof would be closed at 12.30pm (BST) and remain that way for the rest of the day.
Today's match is due to start at 4pm (BST) and will be screened live on ITV.
