Highlights:

  • England report clash in World Cup qualifier to FA
  • In Wednesday’s WC qualifier, England’s Harry Maguire and Kamil Glik from Poland got into a clash
  • England coach and captain comments on the unsavoury incident which happened towards the end of the first half

England Football team’s captain Harry Kane has confirmed that the Three Lions have reported a clash between their player Harry Maguire and Poland’s Kamil Glik to the Football Association (FA) following the World Cup qualifying draw on Wednesday.

The Three Lions dropped their first points of the campaign in Group I as they were held 1-1 in Warsaw.

Damian Szymanski’s goal in the stoppage time was enough to cancel out Kane’s second-half goal, however, it was the earlier altercation that provided one of the match’s big talking points.

After the final whistle of the game, Kane explained to BBC Radio Five Live “There was an incident just before half-time which has been reported to the FA guys.

“They’re taking care of it and investigating it and we’ll go from there.

“Allegedly it was something that was done, not said. We haven’t [had the] chance to look at the footage and talk to the lad.”

Gareth Southgate, England’s coach, was also guarded in his reaction to the infamous incident on the pitch which had earned both Maguire and Glik a yellow card after they went toe-to-toe at the end of the first half.

He told the BBC, “We’re getting to grips with what that was. There’s been a report put in and we need to find out a little bit more about what’s happened.

“At the moment we’re still gathering all the evidence so there’s no point in me speculating any further.”

Before the incident took place, England’s players had once more faced boos from the home crowd as they took the knee before kick-off, as had occurred in last week’s visit to Budapest to face Hungary.

Even though the team failed to win for the first time in their qualifying campaign, England remains well placed to reach the 2022 FIFA World Cup which will be hosted by Qatar.

As of now, the Three Lions sit four points clear of second-placed Albania in Group I and could qualify with two games to spare in October should they win both games against Andorra and Hungary and have other results go their way.
