Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has backed England to ease past opponents Poland tonight at Wembley - and book their place at the 2014 World Cup finals. 

Former England-man Ferdinand took to Twitter to express his excitement over tonight's crucial Group H clash, and admitted he believes it will be a 'convincing' win for Roy Hodgson's men. 

Ferdinand wrote: "Looking forward to watching England win tonight, it'll be convincing too, a 3-0 brushing of Poland me thinks!"

The United centre-back, who has nearly 5 million followers on Twitter, clearly believes his nation have nothing to worry about, despite the threat that Poland possess. 

Borussia Dortmund duo Robert Lewandowski and captain Jakub Błaszczykowski are prime examples of the quality that coach Waldemar Fornalik has to field. 

The Three Lions must win tonight to clinch the automatic qualification place - or risk facing a tricky play-off match against countries such as France and Sweden. 

But Ferdinand, who won 81 England caps before retiring from international duty in May, is certain he will celebrating come the final Wembley whistle.
