Poland vs Wales
UEFA Nations League
Date: Wednesday, 1 June 2022
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Tarczynski Arena.
These two teams are part of one of the strongest groups in the Nations League this time around. Belgium as well as the Dutch are the favourites to take the top-most spot and this puts huge pressure on the two remaining squads.
They have no luxury to take any of the games easy and will have to go after big results right from the get-go. The Poles have the opportunity to start their campaign from home, and since this fixture is their first one after they confirmed qualification to the 2022 World Cup, spirits will be high.
Led by the best striker of the past few years, Robert Lewandowski, fans are hopeful about a decent showing in Qatar. Lewa will also be determined to make amends for his poor outing in the recently concluded European Championship.
Meanwhile, one of the greats of modern football, Gareth Bale has fully transitioned into a national team player, prioritising it for more than his club career. He is looking for ways to cement his legacy, and an immediate objective would be to take Wales to the World Cup.
In almost a weeks’ time they will have to lock horns with the winner of the Ukraine vs Scotland fixture, in the playoff final. As such it is important for them to build some momentum with a win this Wednesday.
Expect good performances from both the teams and count on both the star players to leave their mark on the pitch as well. It is expected that either team will find the back of the net at least once.
