The Polish national team met their opponents in the next Nations League. The team will face difficult challenges: it will have to meet Croatia, Portugal and Scotland.
The Polish national team is preparing to fight in the playoffs of the European Championship. Michal Probež is probably thinking about the match with Estonia and a possible final with Finland or Wales. However, he already knows who he will face in the next Nations League.
Not an easy task for the Polish national team
The League of Nations is still a new competition that is trying to evolve from edition to edition. The competitions, which have been created to replace friendly matches, are intended to make the spectacle more attractive and at the same time give teams the opportunity to participate in the EURO play-offs in case of failure (if they perform well). in LN). It was the Poles who took advantage of this privilege and, having taken third place in the qualifying rounds, would normally have said goodbye to their dream of playing on German fields in the summer.
In the last division A of the Nations League, the Polish national team took third place in the group. The then team of Czeslav Mikhniewicz was overtaken by the Dutch and Belgians. The White-Reds defeated the Welsh, thanks to which they avoided relegation to Division B.
In the 2024/2025 season, the Poles were in Group A along with Croatia, Portugal and Scotland. It was known in advance that demanding opponents would be waiting for them, since before the draw they were in the third pot. Theoretically, the weakest opponents will be the Scots, but in Division A you can’t underestimate anyone. The favorites to reach the final tournament will be Croatia or Portugal. The Poles have not played against the first since EURO 2008. The last time they met the Portuguese was during the first LN draw.
Spain defends its 2023 title
