The Polish national team under the leadership of Michal Probez is preparing for the decisive qualifying match for the European Championship. The meeting with the Czech Republic will decide whether the Whites and Reds will have to play in the playoffs. The former national team goalkeeper mentioned the possibility of working with a coach. However, not everything depends on him.
Having once again lost points in the match with Moldova, the Polish team found itself in a very weak position. Direct qualification to EURO 2024 is still possible, but it no longer depends solely on the Red and Whites. Unlike the last opponents or the Czechs (the current finalists), the Touchstone team will only play one match.
Jerzy Dudek may join the Polish national team
The Poles will meet their southern neighbors in direct confrontation. In the first match, during the reign of Fernando Santos, the “white-red” lost with a score of 1:3. Now even a victory will be of little use if the opponents win the next match. Then Michal Probez’s team will have to fight in the playoffs.
According to Jerzy Dudek, the decision to hire the former coach of Cracovia and Jagiellonia Białystok was the right one. The goalkeeper, who played for Real Madrid many years ago, was linked with the position of national team director when the 51-year-old took over. Although Dudka is still bound by advertising contracts that prevent him from signing a contract, he himself admits that this is not an insurmountable situation. He is ready to cooperate with the national team in the future.
– The coach is building a squad and saw me on his team. Here we need to talk first of all with the Polish Football Association. If I had reached an agreement with the union, there is a chance that I would be closer to the team. I have my own personal blockages, but they will be resolved at the beginning of the new year. It is necessary to determine in advance what principles I should work by,” Dudek told TVP Sport.
The Polish national team will play against the Czech Republic.
The Polish national team takes third place in Group E of the Euro 2024 qualifying round. The Albanians are the leader. The White-Reds will play their last qualifying match in Warsaw on November 17 against the Czech Republic.
