Roy Hodgson has insisted England are not focused on the World Cup play-offs. It''s win or bust against Poland.
Roy Hodgson: "As far as I''m concerned I still feel the focus is on this as a game we want to win.
"I''m not thinking of the play-offs.
"I don''t think we shall be very satisfied if we don''t win. We know we''ve got the play-offs but I don''t think that will affect the attitude of the players. We''re a good team, we''re at home and we''ll want to win."
Steven Gerrard added: "We want to seize this opportunity. We want to win.
"We''ll have 90,000, a full house at Wembley. It''s a huge game on the back of a huge performance a couple of nights ago, and we''re ready to go.
"I think Poland''s tactics will be very similar to Montenegro.
"They will want to defend well and make it difficult so we will have to show patience.
"But with the attacking players we''ve got it''s only a matter of time before the breakthrough comes. We''ve got that confidence."
