The game will be a tough one for both sides as they are so well matched and both are looking to take the step up out of Group H.

Beating England on home soil would give the Poles a boost and a confident Gilk says that he has seen it all before with England and is looking forward to the encounter.

Speaking to Sky Sports he said: "They are high-class players, especially Wayne Rooney, but in Italy I have to face world-class strikers every week.

"I think Rooney is a world-class striker and we will show him and the other England players a lot of respect, but we will play without fear."

He added: "I do not want to say that myself and Marcin (Wasilewski) are sprinters, but we play against speedy strikers on a regular basis and do not do too badly.

"Against the England forwards, we will look to limit their skills by striking the right balance defensively."
