    A Flying Start

    Poland began their second group match aggressively, with Bartosz Łastowski scoring in the second minute. Less than five minutes later, Krystian Kapłon’s powerful strike from the right side earned applause. Kapłon continued to impress, adding a third goal with a precise shot into the top corner. By the 12th minute, Marcin Oleksy, the winner of the 2022 Goal of the Year award, headed in a beautiful cross, making it 4-0. Coach Dymytro Kameko’s team maintained their relentless pace, with Kamil Rosiek finding the net next.

    As the game progressed, substitutes got their chance to shine, with Adrian Bąk hunting for his debut goal. Before halftime, Rafał Bieńkowski calmly scored with a beautiful shot into the corner. The second half began with Mateusz Warakomski extending the lead. A well-executed free kick saw Bieńkowski complete his brace. Kapłon, the tournament’s top scorer, struck again from distance, scoring a stunning goal.

    Historic Win

    In the 41st minute, goalkeeper Maciej Materac made his debut, followed shortly by goals from Grygiel and Rosiek, pushing Poland into double digits for the first time in their history. The Polish team showed no mercy, adding more goals to secure a 15-0 victory, the largest in the history of the European amputee football championships.
