England strikers on song

Poland 1-3 England Carlton Cole and Darren Bent are on target again in another English win in Group 6.

Strikers Carlton Cole and Darren Bent were on target again as England ran out comfortable winners after a difficult start to their Group 6 encounter in Rybnik.

Early lead
Poland took an early lead when Margin Burkhardt found the net with a fierce drive in the fifth minute but failed to capitalise on their dominance and were made to pay when Cole equalised deep into first-half stoppage time.

Bent double
Poland's task was made infinitely more difficult when Dariusz Dudka was sent off immediately after Cole's goal after receiving a second yellow card. Substitute Bent put England ahead from the penalty spot in the 71st minute after a foul by Port Brozek and then clinched the victory eight minutes from time with a simple tap-in after a good link-up with Cole.
