Arsenal winger Oxlade-Chamberlain expects "electric" Polish atmosphere

Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain expects an "electric atmosphere" for England's World Cup qualifier in Poland tonight.

England were hosted with great warmth in Krakow during Euro 2012 but never played a game in Poland.

“There was a really good atmosphere around all the stadiums at Euro 2012 and my friend Wojciech told me that the atmosphere will be electric in the stadium where we are playing,” said Oxlade-Chamberlain.

“It’ll be exciting and that’s why you want to play football, to play at the highest level for atmospheres like that. It’s similar at Wembley. I’m sure their fans will be good but I’m sure our travelling fans will be just as good. Everyone knows Lewandowski is a quality striker and Wojciech tells me how good he is all the time.

“We’ve got to respect Lewandowski and a lot more of their players — they have got a good team.

“We are going to prepare in the same way we do every game — we are just going to try and work hard and get the three points.”
