It's advantage England in the fight with Ukraine for the one automatic qualification spot from Group H for next year's World Cup in Brazil.
England holds a one-point lead over Ukraine going into Tuesday's final round of group matches, so a win over Poland at Wembley Stadium will secure the top spot and put the Ukrainians in the playoffs.
The pressure is all on the English, however, as Ukraine finishes up with what should be a routine victory over last-place San Marino.
Here are five things to know about the last Group H matches:
Forty years ago, Poland came to Wembley Stadium, tore up the script and denied England a place in the 1974 World Cup. Can history repeat itself?
On that occasion, Poland claimed a 1-1 draw through an obdurate defensive effort and some brilliant goalkeeping by the enigmatic Jan Tomaszewski, and qualified for the World Cup at the hosts' expense. This time, the Poles have already been eliminated but are still eyeing an upset.
"It doesn't matter that we only have honor to play for," Poland captain Jakub Blaszczykowski said. "Matches at Wembley are always very important to us."
An England victory will certainly erase some of the memories of that painful night in 1973, and avoid being pushed into the playoffs.
Seemingly backing up his reputation as a cautious tactician, Roy Hodgson faced a backlash from many of England's fans and media after his team ground out an uninspiring 0-0 draw in Ukraine last month.
Typical Hodgson, they said.
His critics have gone underground after England's 4-1 win over Montenegro on Friday, though.
Hodgson sent out an offensive lineup featuring three strikers, a debutant winger in Andros Townsend and two attacking full backs — and was rewarded with the kind of bold, dynamic display rarely seen by England teams in recent years.
The question now is, will Hodgson stay in adventurous mode for a win-or-bust match or revert to type? Will Townsend keep his place after a man-of-the-match debut, or will the more defensive-minded James Milner come in on the right of midfield? Will Michael Carrick be included to anchor the midfield or will Hodgson stick with Frank Lampard or Jack Wilshere as Steven Gerrard's partner in central midfield?
"They will want to defend well and make it difficult so we will have to show patience," Hodgson said Monday. "But with the attacking players we've got, it's only a matter of time before the breakthrough comes. We've got that confidence."
