We have learned the starting line-up of the White and Reds for the Poland – Czech Republic match. They will fight to ensure that our team does not stop dreaming of advancing to Euro 2024. There is one big surprise.
Traditionally, just over an hour before the first whistle, we got to know the starting eleven of the Poles for the next match. We will play a strong team against our southwestern neighbors, who are now our main rivals in the fight for advancement to Euro 2024.
Starting line-up for the Poland – Czech Republic match
The Polish national team for the match against the Czech Republic: Wojciech Szczęsny – Jan Bednarek, Paweł Bochniewicz, Jakub Kiwior – Przemysław Frankowski, Nicola Zalewski – Damian Szymański, Bartosz Slisz, Jakub Piotrowski – Robert Lewandowski, Karol Świderski.
Michał Probierz decided to field practically the strongest eleven he could create. However, it is worth paying attention to the return of Jan Bednarek, who was completely omitted from the call-ups in October. The match against the Czechs will also be an important test for Paweł Bochniewicz. This player has recently been doing great in the Dutch league, but he has never featured in the national team before. Additionally, it is worth watching the actions of Nicola Zalewski, who was recalled to the youth team during the previous training camp. Our starting line-up cannot be called experimental, although the coach messed it up a bit.
Piotr Zieliński’s problems before the match against the Czech Republic
The biggest surprise is the absence of Piotr Zieliński in the starting eleven. Nothing announced such a scenario, but it eventually came true – Michał Probierz decided to leave the Napoli player on the substitute bench. Even though the midfielder was often the best player on the pitch in recent months, this time he won’t help his teammates, at least not from the first minute. According to the latest reports, the coach’s decision is the result of our quarterback’s illness.
However, for many hours it was certain that two players would not play in this match. Due to sporting reasons, there was no place in the squad for the match against the Czech Republic for Tymoteusz Puchacz and Karol Struski, who was called up in an emergency.
