                     === England held to draw in Poland ===
 Warsaw,  Poland  (Sports Network) - A  70th-minute goal from Kamil Glik forced
 England  to  settle for a  1-1 draw  against Poland on  Wednesday in a Group H
 match in UEFA World Cup qualifying.
 The  game was  originally scheduled to take  place on Tuesday, but the roof at
 the  stadium in Warsaw wasn't closed in time, allowing a rainstorm to soak the
 field and make it unplayable.
 Poland started the game better but England took the lead on the half-hour mark
 when Steven Gerrard's corner kick was headed home by Wayne Rooney.
 England  continued  to spend  much of  its time  defending, and Poland finally
 found the equalizer 20 minutes from time with a corner kick of its own.
 Ludovic  Obraniak  swung the  ball into  the area and  Glik beat both defender
 Joleon  Lescott and  onrushing  goalkeeper Joe  Hart to  the  ball, sending  a
 glancing header past both and into the net.
 The  result moves England  to the top of the group, one point clear of second-
 place Montenegro, which has played one fewer game.
 Poland  remains unbeaten  after the  draw and  sits in  third place  with five
 points from three games.
