Michał Probierz made the decision regarding the squad for the upcoming European Championship qualifying match. Compared to the squad from the clash with the Faroes, the coach fielded two strikers from the first minutes.
After winning over the Faroe Islands, the Polish representatives want to follow suit and gain another three points. The match against Moldova has additional significance. The win will not only bring you closer to direct promotion to the European Championships, but will also be a great revenge for the embarrassing defeat from a few months ago.
Michał Probierz surprised with his lineup for the match against Moldova
After a 2-0 victory over the Faroese, the Polish players provided a nice gift for the beginning of Michał Probierz’s term. Although, according to many experts, the White and Reds’ style of play is still not impressive, the team has three points – very valuable in the context of the fight for direct promotion to next year’s European Championships.
Unlike the previous match, the 51-year-old coach decided on a more offensive variant. There will be two strikers in the attack – Arkadiusz Milik and Karol Świderski. Touchstone already made it clear during Saturday’s press conference that he wanted to give the Juventus player a chance. Matty Cash and Bartosz Slisz lost their place in the starting eleven. The former must give way to Paweł Wszołek. Apart from this change, there were no other modifications to the defensive formation. Wojciech Szczęsny will continue to guard the goal, and Patryk Peda and Jakub Kiwior will form the defense center.
The Polish national team squad for the match against Moldova: 1. Szczęsny – 4. Kędziora, 5. Peda, 14. Kiwior – 21. Wszołek, 15. Dziczek, 10. Zieliński, 20. S. Szymański, 19. Frankowski – 7. Milik, 9. Świderski.
Poland is fighting to go to EURO 2024
The match against Moldova is the penultimate match of the Polish national team in the qualifying rounds for the 2024 European Championships. In November, the Reds and Whites will host the Czechs, whom they lost to at the beginning of Fernando Santos’ term.
