Poland beaten by Denmark

October 5th, 2017 — 1:03pm

Poland has been beaten by Denmark by 4-0 in their World Cup qualifying match.


This allows Denmark to maintain their hope of qualification alive and put pressure on both Poland and Montenegro.

Denmark started the match the better under the influence of Tottenham Hotspurs midfielder Christian Eriksen. The latter managed to find Thomas Delaney on a corner and Delaney managed to open the scoring for his team with a powerful header.

Denmark will continue to dominate the game and will create opportunities one after another. Denmark will add a second goal in the 42nd minute. Again it will be Christian Eriksen who will be the architect of the goal with a wonderful cross that will be met by Andreas Cornelius. His powerful shot will give the Poland keeper Fabianski no chance.

Poland will try to come back stronger after the break, and again they will find Christian Eriksen on their path. The latter will fire a powerful shot which the Poland goalkeeper could only parry, and Jorgensen will be the first on the rebound to make the score 3-0. Continue reading »

KAPUSTKA TO JOIN FREIBURG ON LOAN

July 28th, 2017 — 8:25am

Premier League side Leicester City are set to release its player BartoszKapustka to Bundesliga side Freiburg on a loan deal, according to reports.


The Poland international is in Germany for medicals ahead of the season long loan deal.

Kapustka did not make any appearance in the Premier League last term so the Foxes are expected to sanction the move to the German club. The 20-year old is not being considered for the first team so the loan is thought to be in order.

The player was signed by former manager Claudio Ranieri for £2 million after he impressed at the European Championships for Poland. Ranieri felt he needed further development so he was mostly with the feeder team.

Last term, Kapustka played just three times in the FA Cup for Leicester City as he continued mainly in the Under-23 division. On the international scene, he was capped 14 times though. Continue reading »

For the past few years, Poland has been flying high with a number of memorable performances in various international competitions.


During the 2016 UEFA Euro´s, Poland reached the quarter-finals which they had never done before in their entire history as a national football team. Poland was able to defeat Northern Ireland and Ukraine in the group stages while also settling to a goal-less draw with Germany.

Adam Nawalka and his squad would later go on to play against Switzerland and defeat them in a penalty session before eventually losing to Portugal in the quarter-finals.

It appears like Poland are continuing their wave of momentum as they have managed kick-off their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification stages campaign in superb form after claiming successive triumphs over: Denmark, Armenia, Romania and Montenegro. Continue reading »

Poland Has Good Chances Ahead

July 25th, 2016 — 1:59pm

This is definitely a good time for Poland as they have reached the knockout stages for the first time of a European Championship.


They finished in the second place in Group C as they beat their opposing team Ukraine. There were two chances early on that the team was unable to avail of but the effort they made towards the later stage of the game was fruitful. Their opponent team Ukraine has been already out of the game, but they did put in an effort which went wide. Jakub on the other hand, put in a shot with his left foot, which was done 54 minutes into the game. That helped to catapult their team into the next round of the championship. Now they would be facing Switzerland as they gear up to be part of the 16 teams. Their next match is on Saturday.

One of the key players, Bartosz Kapustka received a yellow card and hence, he would be missing the match that would be held at Saint-Etienne. If Poland had been able to get a win with a larger margin they would have made it ahead of Germany. Continue reading »

POLAND HOPE FOR GOOD SHOWING IN THIRD EURO CAMPAIGN

April 28th, 2016 — 2:41pm

The Polish national team is hoping for a decent showing in their third Euro campaign this summer in France. The team which had played in seven FIFA world cup were more than elated when they finally qualified for their first UEFA European championship in 2008. They got their second opportunity when they co-hosted with Ukraine four years later. After a hard-fought qualification round, the Polish squad would be embarking on their third Euro campaign this summer.

The Polish team had participated in 13 qualification rounds before their eventual qualification in 2008. The qualifying effort involved fending off attacks in encounters with bit names such as Portugal, Serbia and Belgium. After topping the qualifying group, the team failed to impress as they finished bottom of the group in the tournament jointly hosted by Austria and Switzerland.

In the next campaign four years later, the Polish team co-hosted the tournament with Ukraine but performed poorly again. Bialo-czerwoni didn’t win any game in the tournament despite being host. Poland did not go beyond the group stage. It was a big disappointment for the host as fans and the world had anticipated for a much better showing. It was much different for the country’s first team when compared to the 1970s and 1980s when forwards like Grzegorz Lato and Zbigniew Boniek helped the country to reach four successive World Cup tournament even winning third place in West Germany 1974 and Spain 1982.
