Poland will look to do the business this Tuesday when they welcome Iceland to the Poznan Stadium.
Despite it being an inconsequential encounter, the Poland vs Iceland game promises to be a lot more than a mere international friendly. For Poland, this clash will serve them well as preparation ahead of the EURO 2020 (2021) tournament, giving them the chance to get valuable time into their players’ legs while testing out any number of tactical setups.
Although they will not be taking part in the upcoming continental tournament, the Icelandic national have proven themselves more than capable of holding their own against bigger sides. In the last European tournament – EURO 2016, Iceland shined on the international stage, finishing second in Group F – ahead of eventual winners Portugal. The now 52nd FIFA ranked national team also famously delivered a critical blow to one of the tournament favourites, England, in the round of 16 fixtures before losing out to finalists France.
On the other hand, Poland enjoyed an equally positive EURO 2016 tournament by making it to the quarter-finals. The Eagles kept their good run of form going after the competition by qualifying for this year’s tournament at the top of their group, ahead of both Austria and North Macedonia – who both made it to the final 24 participating teams.
With the spotlight fixed on their national team this Tuesday, Polish fans will be keen to watch their mega-stars gel together on the field and showcase their talent. Captain Robert Lewandowski at 13/25 (1.52) to score this Tuesday, is sure to lead the attacking line, with the striker achieving an incredible record of 48 goals in 40 games for his club. Unsurprisingly labelled as one of the greatest forwards of his generation, Lewandowski also sports an astonishing record for Poland, having scored 66 goals in 118 games while also providing the squad with 23 assists.
