The last game before the European Cup against Iceland did not answer a long list of questions, but added more. Even the list of defense combinations. On Tuesday, Poland traditionally played against three central defenders-Camille Glick, Pavel Davidovic and Tomaz Koziola. Regarding the match against Russia a week ago, only Kędziora retained his position. The one who was not appointed at all in March. Even Glick, who has occupied a place in the national team for nearly ten years, has no confidence.
-I have never done this before, but I have been a first-team player for most of my career. This is true. Sitting on the bench is not easy for me. This is not a very pleasant thing. Benevento said that I am used to spending time on the court instead of sitting on the bench.
Unfortunately, although the name has changed, the problem still exists: Focusing on the positioning part of the game has failed the most times, but the Polish defender also made mistakes in positioning. The Polish national team lost three goals against Hungary, two goals against England, one goal against Russia, and two goals against Iceland. Only the Andorians failed to score against Paul Sosa’s team. -We lost very few goals in the European Championship qualifiers, but the coach has changed since then, he is looking for a new solution, he wants to see us and check us in the game, so sometimes we don’t look like it A boulder. We need to deal with the game scene. We have had minor and serious health problems, which will also affect them. We were thwarted by certain plans. Perhaps in the game against Iceland, the team looks a little different. As we all know, you always want to play with a similar team in every game, but let me say it again: the coach wants to see us in the game, which is completely understandable-Camille Glick explain.
The spokesperson of the Polish Football Association Jakub Kwiatkowski also talked about the health of injured players mentioned by Glik. Jan Bednarek, Bartosz Bereszyński and Mateusz Klich could not play against the Iceland team. “It’s no big deal: bruises and that kind of injury.” The long season behind the players, the tough camp, some people have minor injuries for a long time, so we would rather not take risks. We want them to have a chance to be reborn so that they can fully prepare for the game against Slovakia.
It is dangerous to get close to the Polish goal after a cross. As many as six of the eight goals were achieved in this way. -This can be fixed in a few days. We are talking about the fixed part of the game. Sometimes we lose our goals because of inattention. That was the case for the game against Iceland on Tuesday. Two set balls, two goals lost. In today’s football game, especially in the game, it is expensive. We must also study offensive solutions, because we have players who can pose a threat in this way-Camille Glick said.
When the team’s deputy captain summarized the game on the defensive end, he naturally began to answer questions about atmosphere. The players praised her in Opalenica. But after the draw and the bad game against Iceland, is the mood still so good? -The atmosphere is very good. We spent two pleasant weeks in Opalenica, and had time to work and relax. I agree with Wojciech Szczęsny that this is a very good training camp. Of course, he always wants to win, and it might be better to end these fights with a victory, but these draws will not affect our attitude-Glick said. In his opinion, it doesn’t make sense to go back to the previous training camp and look for similarities and differences before the big game. “Let’s not go around everywhere, because a long time has passed since the last match,” he said.
-A difficult season has passed, especially mentally, because we have been fighting for maintenance. There is no time to rest, I came here after the end of the season. But I have sorted things out, rested, trained, and I’m ready. The important thing is that I am 100% healthy-Glick promised that in the first half of the game against Iceland, he did not stand up from the court for a long time. Even Paul Souza at the post-match press conference mentioned:-His muscles were hit and his legs started to swell, but Glick was Glick. What a tough guy. He stayed on the court until the end of the game, everything was fine-the Portuguese laughed.
-Before this game, I don’t want to talk about expectations.A colleague of mine [Lewandowski – red.] He said he wants Poles-journalists, fans, staff, football players-to be proud. I subscribe to this. I really want to come back from this game because I know I did everything I could and brought some fun to people. I am glad they are back in the stands. I missed it—Glick said.
In Gdansk, the team will conduct two training sessions with the participation of spectators. The first is already on Thursday 17. Five thousand people will be able to enter the stadium. The first European game has been held on Monday 18. My opponent-Slovakia.
