Follow Sportsmail's coverage of England's World Cup qualifying campaign as they travel to the National Stadium in Warsaw to take on Poland. The Three Lions top Group H after three games but know they face a far tougher test against the Poles than in their 5-0 victory against San Marino.

19.58: ITV have spoken to a press officer at the ground and they have confirmed there will be a final pitch inspection at 8pm.
There is still an option for the game to be delayed an hour but I really cannot see that happening. Other alternatives could be the game being played tomorrow.
19.53: Your full line-ups from Scotland's fixture in Belgium:
Belgium v Scotland
Belgium: Courtois, Alderweireld, Vermaelen, Kompany, Vertonghen, De Bruyne, Witsel, Chadli, Mertens, Dembele, Benteke. Subs: Mignolet, Hazard, Ciman, M'Boyo, Van Buyten, Mirallas, Defour, Lombaerts, Vossen, Simons, Guillaume Gillet, Jean-Francois Gillet.
Scotland: McGregor, Hutton, Berra, Caldwell, Fox, Maloney, Morrison, Darren Fletcher, McArthur, Commons, Steven Fletcher. Subs: Gilks, Mulgrew, Cowie, Adam, Miller, Mackie, Martin, Phillips, Webster, Marshall.

19.50: And it's half-time in Croatia too where Mario Mandzukic's strike is the difference between the hosts and Wales. A fluke goal but Croatia have been dominant.
19.47: We are underway in Belgium though, as they have just kicked off against Scotland.
Meanwhile it's more bad news for the Republic of Ireland as it's half-time in the Faroe Islands and they are still being held 0-0.
19.44: Roy Hodgson has told ITV he doesn't think the game will go ahead. There isn't exactly much rush to get this game ready by the hosts. There isn't a groundsman and a pitchfork in sight.
19.40: Dare Roy Hodgson pull a Steve McClaren and put up an umbrella – not a chance!
I still can't believe that a roof closed throughout Euro 2012 has stayed open all day. Apparently the roof now cannot be closed because the rain is too heavy. Unbelievable.
19.36: To put this into perspective, when the ball is thrown in the air it simply doesn't even bounce after hitting the turf.
There will be an announcement at 8pm over whether this game will go ahead. For now it looks like they will close the roof. Stable doors and bolting horses come to mind.
19.33: Back to Warsaw though and the reason the game is in doubt is because torrential rain has made the pitch more like a paddy field.
The referee has declared the pitch unplayable but there is no official confirmation yet over whether this game is going ahead.
19.30: Bad news for Wales. They have gone 1-0 down to Croatia following an opportunistic strike from Mario Mandzukic.
19.25: Sportsmail's Matt Barlow:
A new 400m stadium with a closing roof and the game in warsaw appears in doubt.

19.20: There has been an early blow for England in Warsaw.
For the second time in 20 years the band that follows the team has been…well…banned.
They were of course shut out recently at Donestk for a Euro 2012 match but they have now been snubbed in Warsaw too.
It is believed stadium authorities took tonight's decision because the Polish FA have refused to sanction a Polish band, and would be open to accusations of double standards if they allowed their English counterparts in.
Band leader John Hemmingham said: 'It is very frustrating. We have travelled tens of thousands of miles following England are were looking forward to banging the drum for the Three Lions once more. It is massively disappointing to get such a bum note.'
19.15: Scotland make one change from the side who lost to Wales for tonight's World Cup qualifier against Belgium.
Wigan midfielder James McArthur is drafted into the starting line-up in place of Scott Brown.
The Hoops skipper was forced to withdraw from the squad with an ongoing hip problem that forced him out of Friday's clash in Cardiff at half-time.
The Scots head into the game in Brussels second bottom of Group A and know they needed a first victory of the campaign to keep their slim hopes alive.
19.10: England head coach Roy Hodgson hands 99th caps to skipper Steven Gerrard and defender Ashley Cole for the World Cup qualifier with Poland in Warsaw.
Gerrard returns after missing the 5-0 home win over San Marino through suspension while Cole comes back into the side after resting his ongoing ankle problem.
Hodgson makes a total of six changes with Glen Johnson, Joleon Lescott, James Milner and Jermain Defoe also back in the starting line-up.
Defenders Kyle Walker, Gary Cahill and Leighton Baines, midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, striker Danny Welbeck plus the injured Theo Walcott make way.
19.05: Back to the World Cup 2014 qualifiers – two games are already underway.
Republic of Ireland are trying to bounce back from their 6-1 defeat to Germany as they travel to Faroe Islands, while Wales will be looking to build on their 2-1 win over Scotland with their tricky trip to Croatia.
Job done: England Under 21s celebrate Connor Wickham's injury time goal
19.00: Serbian fans of course are not on good terms with UEFA following their disgraceful antics to have a Euro 2012 qualifier in Italy abandoned – I'm not holding my breath for any serious punishments though.
18.59: From Sportsmail's Dominic King:
Let's see how serious UEFA take this. Never seen anything like that before. Actions of neanderthals. Riot police around ground did nothing.
18.56: Awful scenes in Serbia. The good news is the England Under 21s scored in injury time through Connor Wickham to seal a 2-0 aggregate victory and a place at Euro 2013.
But the scenes that followed saw England players and coaches attacked by Serbians, with Danny Rose sent off for retaliation.
The full-back seemed to gesture that he was racially abused – but either way you haven't heard the last of this game and sadly it won't be because of the football.
18.51: And a quick update on the England Under 21s before we get cracking. We are in second half injury time in Serbia where Stuart Pearce's side are drawing 0-0.
Should it stay that way, they will advance to the Euro 2013 finals after winning the first leg 1-0 at Carrow Road on Friday.
18.48: England starting XI:
Hart, Johnson, Cole, Gerrard, Jagielka, Lescott, Milner, Carrick, Defoe, Rooney, Cleverley.
18.45: Was I the only one left a little subdued after England's 5-0 win over San Marino on Friday It certainly felt strange to be left feeling shortchanged after seeing the Three Lions record a five-goal victory.
It's a much tougher test for Roy Hodgson's side tonight though as they travel to Poland for the second time this year. No sunshine and major tournaments this time though – just a tricky night in Warsaw and hopefully three valuable points to take back across the Channel. Team news coming up.
