Will Michał Probierz choose these names?  Expected lineup for the match against the Netherlands

Injuries thwarted Michał Probierz’s plans to select the optimal lineup for the match against the Netherlands. What combination will the red and white teams come out with? Here is the predicted starting eleven.

Unfortunately, the Polish national team will not be able to go into this match with the optimal formation. This is related to the injury of Robert Lewandowski, who is being prepared for Austria. It is also unknown what happens to Paweł Dawidowicz, who did not train the day before the clash with the Dutch. This situation means that Michał Probierz will have to experiment and reorganize the squad, compared to what we saw in the last sparrings.

Goalkeeper and defense line

Wojciech Szczęsny is a sure bet for the first team, without whom we would not be at this championship. Let us remind you that it was he who saved the decisive penalty kick in the match against Wales in the play-off final.

The players should also be sure that they will play in the match, i.e. Nicola Zalewski, who helped us win against Turkey, and Przemysław Frankowski – the leader of our national team in recent months.

In the case of central defenders, we should see Jakub Kiwior and Jan Bednarek on the pitch. The name of the third stopper is an unknown, as we still don’t know what happens to Paweł Dawidowicz. As TVP journalists reported, Bartosz Salamon was selected for this “stronger” team during training, so he can take the place of the Hellas Verona player.

Help and attack

If nothing bad happens, we will definitely see Piotr Zieliński in midfield, who will be the captain in this match. The big unknown is who will play next to him. Michał Probierz should choose one more typical defensive midfielder, which is Taras Romanczuk or Bartosz Slisz. It seems that the latter has more arguments to appear in this match.

Back in November and March, it seemed that Jakub Piotrowski would be the third midfield player, but his recent performances in sparring were not impressive. In turn, his namesake, Jakub Moder, performed much better, so he should also appear on the pitch.

The highest-ranking central midfielder should be Sebastian Szymański, who, unlike Kacper Urbański, already has a lot of experience and is well-matched with most of the players. The Fenerbahce player should be positioned as a false number nine, just behind the lone striker. Karol Swiderski, who fought to recover after the unsuccessful celebration, is unlikely to play in the attack.

In this situation, the only striker should be Krzysztof Piątek, who is one goal ahead of Adam Buksa in the Turkish league (17 to 16). Moreover, the former Milan player played in the last match against the Netherlands in 2022 and recorded an assist.

The composition of the Polish national team

Wojciech Szczęsny – Jan Bednarek, Bartosz Salamon, Jakub Kiwior – Przemysław Frankowski, Nicola Zalewski – Bartosz Slisz, Jakub Moder, Piotr Zieliński – Sebastian Szymański – Krzysztof Piątek.
