Michal Probez is preparing many changes in the Polish national team compared to the match with Moldova. Robert Lewandowski, who was recovering from an injury at 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.
As for the goalkeeper, there is nothing to discuss here. Already on the first day of the training camp, Michal Probez announced that Wojciech Szczęsny was number one. The discussion about the choice of the first goalkeeper arose after the appointment of Marcin Bulka, who is having a great time at OGK Nice.
Michal Probez will restore the squad for the match with the Czech Republic
Looking through the prism of the previous training camp, Michal Probez is unlikely to decide to change the defensive scheme, so the match with the Czech Republic should be started in a formation with three central defenders and swing players. One of the undisputed facts is the left-footed Jakub Kivior in the role of half-back.
It is possible that Jan Bednarek, whom the coach did not recognize at the previous training camp, will return to the main team, and at this training camp Michal Probez admitted that the defender impressed him with his determination. In the match with the Czechs, we probably won’t see the biggest surprise of the previous training camp – Patrick Peda. During one of the meetings with journalists, the coach admitted that he knew the Spal defender, but when he came to the training camp earlier, he had much more self-confidence.
Will there be a surprise in the center of defence?
However, Peda has not won a single match since the match with the Faroe Islands. – We are thinking about how to solve this problem. We don’t want to harm anyone. Patrick has received a lot of negative feedback, but I defend him. However, we must look at the good of the national team so as not to put any player at stake, he said. His place will be taken by Pavel Bochniewicz, who returned to the Polish national team after a three-year break.
On the swing we should see Przemyslaw Frankowski set to play on the right side of the pitch in Matty Cash’s absence. Nikola Zalewski, who returns to the Polish senior national team, will play on the left flank.
Robert Lewandowski will receive support
The midfield will undoubtedly be dominated by Piotr Zielinski, who will be responsible for creating action and delivering the ball to the strikers. Two more defensive midfielders will take to the field to support Ziel. Recently, the position of Bartosz Slisz, who played in the last matches of the national team, has strengthened. His partner will be Damian Szymanski.
We will definitely see Robert Lewandowski return from injury as a striker. His attacking partner will be the stunningly effective Karol Swiderski, who recently trained at Śląsk Wrocław.
Poland national team for the match against the Czech Republic: Wojciech Szczęsny – Jan Bednarek, Pavel Bochniewicz, Jakub Kiwior – Przemyslaw Frankowski, Nikola Zalewski – Damian Szymanski, Bartosz Slysz, Piotr Zielinski – Robert Lewandowski, Karol Swiderski.
The Poland-Czech Republic match will begin on Friday, November 17, at 20:45. This is the last match of the “white-red” within the framework of qualifying for the 2024 European Championship.
