    2023 UEFA European U-17 Championships: Poland won with Ireland

    The Poles opened the 2023 UEFA European U-17 Championships on May 17 with a 5-1 victory over the Irish! Two goals by Mateusz Skoczylas, goals by Karol Borys, Szymon Kądziołka, and Dominik Szala, but also a lot of other goal situations for Poles in this match. Great work by the team of Marcin Wodarski! White-and-reds are focused on preparing for Saturday’s match against Hungary, which will start at 8:00 pm.

    The finals will also act as UEFA's qualifier for the 2023 FIFA U-17 World Cup from 10 November to 2 December. The five spots will be filled by the four semi-finalists, plus the winners of a play-off between the two beaten quarter-finalists with the best group stage record.

    Poland – Ireland 5-1

    In the fourth minute of the match, the Polish juniors conceded a goal. Even though they suffered a setback, they didn’t give up. As a result of fast-paced play and high pressing, the White and Reds quickly gained the upper hand over their opponents. They scored two goals before halftime and added three more in the second half.

    One of the heroes for the Polish team was 16-year-old Mateusz Skoczylas from Zagłębie Lubin, who scored two goals, including the equalizer at 1-1.
