May 26th, 2017 — 11:36am

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

During the 2016 UEFA EuroA?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.

The Polish squad essentially finished undefeated throughout the group stages and rightfully earned their ticket to the round of 16 for the 2016 edition of the UEFA EuroA?s.

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 »

Anthony Hudson is aware that reaching the World Cup 2018 will be a very difficult proposition

October 2nd, 2015 — 8:10am

New Zealand coach Anthony Hudson is aware that reaching the World Cup 2018 will be a very difficult proposition for the oceanic team. This task will just be made harder with a tough qualification group.

New Zealand were one of the surprise packages of the 2010 edition in South Africa. However, they have since been unable to achieve this magnificent run. Hudson came into the role almost a year ago and during this period results have been highly inconsistent. As a result, fans are not placing much hope on New Zealand reaching the finals in Russia.

The fact that they may have to go through a qualification group that involves opponents from the likes of Santiago, Montevideo or Quito only makes it difficult. However, Hudson is aware of the difficulty involved in qualifying for the World Cup. New Zealand do not have much matches between every qualification game and it makes things that little bit harder for the manager. He has identified the time spent with the squad as one of the key aspects in improving the overall quality of the team. Hence, New Zealand are expected to schedule a lot of training sessions whenever they get the opportunity to do so. Continue reading »
