Michał Probierz is preparing a lot of changes in the composition of the Polish national team compared to the match against Moldova. Robert Lewandowski, who was recovering from an injury during the last training camp, will definitely return to the squad. There should also be no shortage of surprises in the match against the Czech Republic.
When it comes to the goalkeeper, there is nothing to discuss here. Already on the first day of the training camp, Michał Probierz announced that Wojciech Szczęsny was the number one. The discussion regarding the selection of the first goalkeeper arose after the appointment of Marcin Bułka, who is having a great time at OGC Nice.
Michał Probierz will rebuild the squad for the match against the Czech Republic
Looking through the prism of the previous training camp, Michał Probierz is unlikely to decide to change the defensive formation, so the White and Reds should start the match with the Czech Republic in a formation with three central defenders and swing players. One of the certainties is the left-footed Jakub Kiwior as a half-left defender.
It is possible that Jan Bednarek, who was not recognized by the coach during the previous training camp, will return to the first team, and during this training camp Michał Probierz confessed that the defender impressed him with his commitment. In the clash with the Czechs, we will probably not see the biggest surprise of the previous training camp, Patryk Peda. During one of the meetings with journalists, the coach admitted that he knew the Spal defender, but when he came to the training camps earlier, he had much more self-confidence.
Will there be a surprise in the center of defense?
Moreover, Peda has not won a single match since the match against the Faroe Islands. – We are wondering how to solve it. We don’t want to hurt anyone. Patryk received a lot of negative reviews, but I defend him. However, we must look at the good of the national team so as not to put any player on the line, he said. Paweł Bochniewicz, who returned to the Polish national team after a three-year break, is to take his place.
We should see Przemysław Frankowski on the swings, who should play on the right side of the field in the absence of Matty Cash. Nicola Zalewski, who is returning to the senior Polish national team, will play on the left side.
Robert Lewandowski is to receive support
Piotr Zieliński will undoubtedly play in the midfield, who will be responsible for creating actions and delivering the ball to the attackers. Two more defensive midfielders will appear on the pitch to support “Ziel”. Recently, the position of Bartosz Slisz, who appeared in the last matches of the national team, has increased. His partner is to be Damian Szymański.
We will definitely see Robert Lewandowski returning from injury as a striker. His attacking partner is to be the devastatingly effective Karol Świderski, who recently trained with Śląsk Wrocław.
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, Piotr Zieliński – Robert Lewandowski, Karol Świderski.
The Poland-Czech Republic match will start on Friday, November 17 at 8:45 p.m. This is the last match of the White and Reds in these qualifiers for the 2024 European Championships.
