History is there to be rewritten insist Poles

WARSAW, Oct 5 (Reuters) - Artur Boruc, who is likely to play in goal for Poland against England at Old Trafford next week, says his country's dismal record against England will not hinder their chances of success in their World Cup qualifer.

Poland have beaten England just once in 16 matches since they first met in 1966, but Boruc, who wasn't even born at the time of that solitary success in June 1973, says he has no complex about facing England.

He told the daily Gazeta Wyborcza: 'I don't have a complex. We haven't beaten them for years, and maybe some weakness will creep in when we have to face them again. But I think the force will be with us.'

Poland lead Group Six with 24 points and will take first place automatically if England, who have 19 points, fail to beat Austria at Old Trafford on Saturday.

If England do win that match and then beat Poland, England will win the group and qualify automatically for next year's finals in Germany, but Poland could arrive at Old Trafford with a place in the finals guaranteed as one of the best-placed group runners-up depending on results elsewhere.

ONLY VICTORY

Poland's only victory against England was a 2-0 success in Chorzow in a World Cup qualifier in June 1973 and a draw at Wembley later that year saw Poland eliminate England from the World Cup.

In the 12 matches since then England have won eight times with four matches drawn.

Boruc, who is on loan at Celtic from Legia Warsaw says he is enjoying life in Scotland.

'Glasgow is good for me -- I'm only 25 and I don't want to go changing clubs every few minutes, because Celtic is a very good club for the start of your career. But I also think that sometimes you have to take the bull by the horns.'

'Celtic has the right of first refusal, but it could always happen that I don't agree to the contract and come back to Warsaw. And I don't conceal that there are other options,' he said, without mentioning other clubs by name.

Boruc is likely to face England as Liverpool goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek is still recovering from an elbow injury although he is nearing full fitness.
