In a thrilling match on Friday, Poland’s women’s national football team secured a 2-1 victory against Serbia, propelling them to the top of their group in the UEFA Women’s Nations League. After three rounds of play, the Polish team can proudly claim a perfect record, positioning them well in the race for promotion to the league’s top division.
Under the guidance of coach Nina Patalon, the Polish squad is making significant strides in Group 3 of Division B in the inaugural edition of the Women’s Nations League. Their earlier wins against Greece (3-1) and Ukraine (2-1) have not only elevated their standing in the tournament but also bolstered their hopes of qualifying for the 2025 UEFA Women’s Championship.
The Serbian team, like their Polish counterparts, entered the match with a perfect record but lost their lead in the group with this defeat. Only a victory in their upcoming matches can ensure their promotion to League A and a chance at the 2025 Euro qualification playoffs.
