    Poland’s National Team Ends 2023 Campaign with a Glimmer of Hope

    Estimated reading time: 1 minute

    Disappointing results, a lackluster playing style, and dwindling fan support marked Poland’s 2023 football journey. Despite a promising start in a friendly against Latvia, the team’s struggles were evident in the failed Euro 2024 qualification. Managerial changes, including the switch from Fernando Santos to Michał Probierz, failed to rejuvenate the squad.

    A Lackluster Euro Qualification

    Poland fell short of expectations in a group deemed “easy,” trailing behind Albania. The unimpressive style of play further alienated fans, resulting in sparse attendance at the PGE Narodowy stadium. Even the announcement of Robert Lewandowski starting couldn’t fill the stands, reflecting the growing disillusionment.

    In the recent friendly against Latvia, Przemysław Frankowski and Robert Lewandowski showcased glimpses of brilliance. Frankowski’s early goal, assisted by Nicola Zalewski, hinted at untapped potential. Despite a 2-0 victory, concerns linger about whether Poland can translate this success into Euro 2024 qualification.

    Nicola Zalewski’s stellar performance earned him acclaim, providing a silver lining in an otherwise challenging campaign. With injuries and uncertainties, the road to Euro 2024 bar playoffs poses a critical test for Poland’s football redemption.
