The Polish national team drew 1-1 with Moldova in the EURO 2024 qualifying match. Karol Świderski scored the only goal for the White and Reds. The national team’s striker revealed what was the reason for the lack of three points in the clash with a lower-ranked rival.
Polish players made a winning debut for Michał Probierz. The coach replaced Fernando Santos to change the team and confidently advance to EURO 2024. A 1-1 home draw with Moldova complicates the situation, meaning that winning the last match against the Czech Republic is no longer enough to directly advance.
Karol Świderski pointed out the reason for not winning over Moldova
Unlike our closest rival, the Poles only have one match left to play. Even a great victory will be in vain if the Czechs win against Moldova. Poles can boldly spit in each other’s beards. From the 40th minute of the match, they mostly controlled the game. The rivals were desperately trying to avoid defeat for the last 20-25 minutes.
Just after the match, Karol Świderski commented on the loss of points. The national team’s striker did not hide his disappointment, as the Poles had plenty of chances to score not one, but several goals. In the second half, their opponents dominated, but apart from his goal, each time there was a lack of a good shot.
– We are playing much better than before. I think you can see these positives. Obviously, the most important thing was to win, regardless of the style. I hope that this national team will go step by step in the right direction with the same coach – said Świderski for TVP Sport. When the Charlotte striker was asked about the reason for the defeat, he nodded to the journalist when he suggested a lack of effectiveness. – If we had 20 shots, sure. There were these situations and it’s certainly a pity, because we should have won this match – added the White and Reds striker.
