He plays for a top Serie A club, but there is no place for him in the Touchstone squad. What is the problem?

He is 19 years old and is a sensational player on the Apennine Peninsula. Kacper Urbanski clearly has a desire to compete for a place in the Polish national team at Euro 2024.

In the 2023/24 season, Kacper Urbanski played 19 matches for the Italian Bologna. The Polish youth representative is not a regular Serie A player, but spends valuable minutes in the team, which is successfully led by coach Thiago Motta. Perhaps the Polish midfielder will make his way to Euro 2024 this year.

Kacper Urbanski on the lack of appointment of Michal Probez

However, for now Urbanski is a player of the Polish youth team. However, as the player himself admitted, throughout his developing career he would like to increasingly declare a move to the senior national team.

“The coach made this decision, and I respect him. […] I hoped that I would be called up to the first Polish national team. However, I play in the U-21 national team and, as I already said, I respect the decision of coach Probezh. I’m 19 years old, but I don’t think age matters. Especially when you get minutes in a team that is fourth in Serie A and fighting for the Champions League. And I get a lot of those minutes. I thought that this would affect my appointment, but this did not happen,” Urbanski admitted in an interview with Meczyki.pl.

Looking at the footballer’s technical preparation, he is certainly a player who has the makings to play big. He seemed to be able to find a special understanding, especially in the second line, with another Polish player playing in Italy, Piotr Zielinski.

Poland advances to Euro 2024. Who will they play in Germany?

Even before the start of the playoffs in March, UEFA determined the groups for this year’s European Championship. The Poles will play in Germany against the Netherlands, France and Austria. What does the exact schedule look like? The White-Reds will start with a match against the Netherlands on June 16 in Hamburg (15:00). Then Poland – Austria in Berlin (21.06, 18:00) and at the end of the group games the most difficult test is France – Poland. The match against the world champion is scheduled for June 25 in Dortmund at 18:00.

Interestingly, it was only in 2016 that the Polish national team managed to achieve something at the European Championships. The team, led by coach Adam Navalka, reached the quarterfinals in France. In 2008, 2012 and 2021, the Poles took… last, fourth places in the groups.

How will it be in Germany? Coach Probezh’s team will certainly face a difficult task.
