Wayne Rooney scored for England
England were denied a crucial victory as Kamil Glik's second-half equaliser gave Poland a point they fully deserved in the delayed World Cup qualifier in Warsaw.
Roy Hodgson's side were on course for three points that would have been a generous reward for a mediocre display after Wayne Rooney's deflected header gave them the lead before the interval.
In a game played 24 hours after the initial meeting was washed away in a Warsaw deluge, England struggled to exert any supremacy and it was no surprise when Glik took advantage of a rare misjudgement from keeper Joe Hart to head home a corner with 19 minutes left.
England would have been hoping for a win that could have given them control of a potentially very tight qualifying group, but in the end there may even be a measure of relief that they leave Poland with a point.
Moments of quality were rare, not helped by a patchy pitch made worse by the storm that hit the city on Tuesday and forced the game to be held over for a day.
England's campaign now has a mixed appearance, with convincing wins against Moldova and San Marino set against two draws, from meetings with Ukraine and now Poland.
Hodgson's men will resume action with a double header against San Marino and Montenegro in March, the latter fixture in particular now assuming real significance.
