Helpless as Rooney scored via a deflection to give England the lead, but otherwise went untested.
Unfortunate to see Rooney's opener graze his back on its way in. Offered plenty of attacking threat in the second half and caused England plenty of problems.
Unlucky to be booked for an unintentional handball in the second half. Rarely tested by the lone threat of Defoe, but made a vital block to deny the striker from a dangerous Gerrard cross. Headed home the equaliser beyond a stranded Hart.
Provided for an unmarked Grosickiwho should have tested Hart in the first half, and later blasted over from distance.
Given a generally quiet night in defence by England, who struggled to threaten.
Part of a Poland midfield that would not allow England to create in the centre of the pitch.
Might have given away a penalty when Johnson went down under contact from the wide player. The first to be replaced, coming off for Mierzejewski.
Dropped into space and attempted to combine with Lewandowski. Forced Hart into a reaching save with a drilled shot, and provided the corner for Glik to equalise. Replaced by Borysiuk in the closing stages.
Received a soft yellow card after 11 minutes for cutting across Defoe's heels. Played his part in Poland's industrious midfield, which dominated proceedings.
Scuffed a good chance early on and sliced another wide when played through expertly by Lewandowski. Had a busy night on the right-hand side until he was replaced by Milik.
Flashed a first-half effort across goal. His excellent scooped pass presented Grosicki with an excellent chance to level which he could not take.
Not the usually reliable goalkeeper's finest hour, as the Manchester City man made a costly mistake in coming for an Obraniak corner and leaving Glik with an open goal to head into. Otherwise displayed typical bravery to save low at the feet of Piszczek, but almost cost his side earlier when a poor clearance allowed Lewandowski a chance.
Completely fluffed a clearance to almost allow Poland an equaliser but was rescued by Johnson, but mostly stood firm under a tough Polish test.
Positioning was given a thorough examination by Poland's link-up play in the channel on his left hand side, but showed good discipline.
Booked cheaply for dawdling over a throw-in in the 38th minute. Given a torrid time by Piszczek on his 99th England appearance.
Made a vital interception in the England goalmouth after the interval to keep his side ahead when Jagielka blundered. Felt he should have had a penalty when pulled by Wsolek.
Saw plenty of the ball in the opening stages but gave it away too often. Drilled wide towards the end of the opening 45 minutes. Forced into a defensive role in the second half
Played a few sublime passes in the first half without producing the killer ball until his wicked, whipped corner found Rooney for the opener
Uncharacteristically guilty of being caught in possession on a couple of occasions in the first half. Largely anonymous in the second 45 minutes.
Given the time and space to deliver on a few occasions but could not produce an effective cross. Launched a break in the second half that presented Rooney with the chance to kill the game off.
Opened the scoring in somewhat fortuitous circumstances during an otherwise quiet first half. Moved into a wider position in the second half to counteract Poland's attacks down the right. Shot over from close range after good work from Welbeck. Brought off for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Became more and more isolated as Poland pressed for an equaliser in the second half and was given the unenviable task of chasing clearances. Missed a chance after latching onto a free-kick, before being replaced by Welbeck.
