Match No. 1012 - Wednesday, 31st March 2021, 7:45pm

  • Assist: Raheem Sterling. "Phil Foden won the ball and fed Sterling, whose acceleration was too hot for Poland to handle. Having surged away from Grzegorz Krychowiak, he saw Michal Helik go to ground close to the byline in order to block the anticipated cross. Sterling slowed down, felt Helik’s trailing leg catch him and went down. From Poland’s point of view, it was soft. Kane clipped the kick up the middle into the top of the net." Harry Kane34th of 48 goals. Right-footed from 12 yards., 19' 18:42 (pen)
  • Assist: John Stones. "Stones leapt with tremendous athleticism at the far post to head a Foden corner back down and across and there was Harry Maguire to pivot and smash a shot through the hands of Wojciech Szczesny and into the roof of the net." Harry Maguire3rd of 7 goals. Right-footed from 11 yards., 85' 84:13

  • "Stones wanted too much time after Pope had rolled a ball out to him, his second touch being particularly heavy and Moder was onto him in a flash, winning the ball and then getting it back from Milik. Moder lifted a cool finish past Pope and the game had been turned on its head." Jakub Moder, 58'57:19
