-We played better in the first half and I liked it better than the previous games. We lacked the speed and frequency of the game, but it was also affected by the behavior of our opponents-this is how Paul Sousa began to judge a 2-2 draw with Iceland. For Poles, this is the last test before the euro. Six days before the first game, you will first feel uncertain. “We want to advance the game, but defending them, especially in the middle, makes us unable to do it.” We missed the speed. We have a lot of situations that are one-to-one, and I am very satisfied with a few players. After the intermission, the game looked better. We changed the system a little bit. We brought in Kacper Kozłowski. He is a young player, but very good. He failed to play in 20 minutes, he had to start, but it ended very well. He promoted our game. The team persisted to the end-drew subsequent conclusions from Paul Souza.
The Polish lineup was unexpected: Kamil Jóźwiak, Mateusz Klich, Maciej Rybus sat on the bench. Jan Bednarek is not in the picture at all. “We developed a strategy for this game, but I talked to our doctor on Monday and he said which players I need to be careful about.” We encountered some difficulties with some players, which is why, including Klich is not playing . In addition, we want to find some alternatives, because this is a long tournament, so we must have them. Rybus cannot be played for more than 20-30 minutes. We want to check Tymek because he is also a beginner. We made a good defensive decision, but this does not apply to set kicks. We didn’t keep our distance in parallel passes, and I also want to see more aggressiveness. In the next few days, we will analyze which places are not playing their due role-Sosa said.
“To be honest, I didn’t sleep well today.” I will think about how to build our team’s game to make it run well. When I walk, I never look at my feet, I always look forward. The same is true for this game. I want to know how to motivate players to get the best results. On Monday, I still believe in Arrick’s return. Now we will modify our game in terms of strategy, approaching in certain positions-Sousa announced.
The Polish team ended successfully in the game when they managed to score 2:2. Kacper Kozłowski has a good influence on the team. -This behavior must happen to us more frequently. We must find corridors and vacancies on the court faster. Things were better in the second half. We have more midfielders, so the effect is better, because the determination and speed of the midfielders is the key. I want to see more of these things. During this time, our defense must keep our eyes open to protect us from counterattacks, because we are not always successful in the game against Iceland. However, we want to continue to pressure and push the game forward-the Polish national team’s selectors believe.
-We decided to play with two forwards because we want more space to tear-from the defenders. The attacker will have more opportunities and passes. Lewandowski is always looking for opportunities, maybe in the club, he is less in midfield and more on the sidelines. We must help him score goals, we must make it easy for him. We have fast and strong players who can do it, but they need to get the ball into the penalty area better. If there is more cooperation between them, we will create more opportunities.
-First of all, I don’t think friendly matches are a test. These competitions do not emphasize the results, but emphasize the dynamics and formulating strategies. For the team, I always choose the player that best suits the needs of a particular game. I want to say something important: the players show big hearts. The game is not always as effective as we hope, but the promise is very good.
-The doctor said that Kamil Glik has a muscle that causes it to swell. This may be a sign of serious injury. But Glik is Glik. Tough guy. His behavior shows the importance of the heart. He has no limits. After this minor trauma, his performance returned to normal. He is fine,” Sosa said.
On Tuesday (June 14), the Polish national team will play the first European Cup match with Slovakia. On Wednesday, he will move from Opalenica to Sopot, where he will have a championship base.
