With a lot of controversy still surrounding the Football Association's rules concerning international eligibility, we take a look at a Poland side that England could have been playing against at Wembley on Tuesday night.

Through family heritage or being born in Poland, this is a team mixing the country's finest, and those who could have chosen to represent Poland, but - for one reason or another - opted for a different international outfit.

After seeing this, Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson might like to count himself lucky, seeing as England's chances of qualifying for next summer's 2014 World Cup in Brazil have been significantly enhanced, given the quality of opponent they will actually face.

Victory will ensure England avoid a play-off by finishing top of qualifying Group H, and in doing so will book their place at next summer's finals.

Eligible Poland XI (prior to representing a different country)

Goalkeeper: Wojciech Szczesny

Right back: Lukasz Piszczek

Centre back: Laurent Koscielny

Centre back: Phil Jagielka

Left back: Felipe Luis

Right winger: Jakub Blaszczykowski

Centre midfield: Piotr Trochowski

Centre midfield: Eugen Polanski

Left winger: Lukas Podolski

Striker: Robert Lewandowski

Striker: Miroslav Klose

So if some of these players did chose to play for Poland over the country they are representing would the group still look the same?
