Injuries and minor injuries were the biggest problem in the pre-war training camp in Europe. Arkadiusz Milik, Maciej Rybus, Paweł Dawidowicz and Dawid Kownacki missed the first training. On the way, Kacper Kozłowski also needs a short break. Dawidowicz and Kownacki returned to their class soon, and we had to wait for Rybus and Milik until Thursday. Then they all joined the group, and the training time became longer and longer each time. When the training game started, Milik was leaving the field.
Until Sunday, everything seemed to be moving in the right direction. We wrote that the key to a quarrel with Iceland (Tuesday, 6pm). Paul Souza plans to leave Milik out for 20 minutes to see if his knees can withstand the conditions of the game. If the relationship is good-Milik will stay in the team, because he is a very important player for the coach. But if the relationship is not good, Souza intends to replace him with a completely healthy player on the bench. It includes Kamil Grosicki, Sebastian Szymański, Rafał Augustyniak and Robert Gumny.
However, on Sunday, Milik did not participate in the training. He lives in a hotel with a physical therapist. This is a disturbing signal. It seems that his rehabilitation progress is visible day by day, because his training time is getting longer and longer, and the exercise is getting more and more intense. Until Sunday. In addition, Dawid Kownacki is fighting sciatica, but after a day of treatment, 30-40% improvement is significant. In the case of Milik, it is difficult to make such an estimate. His Euro performance is still uncertain. According to ed. Tomasz Włodarczyk, on Monday, Milik will train with other players, and the plan to test him in Iceland is still valid.
If Milik must be replaced, Sebastian Simansky is likely to join the team. It is quite surprising that he did not appear on the appointment list, because the Moscow Dynama team had a very good season and it was the first training camp for Paulo Sosa. On the second day he was only on the reserve team list of the European Cup, he was selected as the best eleven of the season in the Russian League. -Although I am not in a team preparing to participate in the European Championship-I still wholeheartedly support a team that has such a chance. If necessary, I am ready to help the team. I pray for all the boys, and I firmly believe that they will experience a wonderful adventure, which will bring many beautiful emotions to all of us-he wrote on social media.
After the replacement list was announced, many people were talking about the coach’s lack of clear guidelines on how these players should prepare for the game, just in case. It turns out that Szymański has no objections to this.
After announcing his participation in the European national team, he immediately went to Dubai for vacation. He planned his vacation in advance, and the decision of the chooser had no influence on his plan. Szymański has been in Poland for a few days, training every day according to the schedule set by the coaches of Dynamo Moscow. “Running is mainly for health and aerobic exercise. Sebastian’s genes are very healthy. His physical fitness has always been very good-Mariusz Piekaski, Siemansky’s agent, told us.
Dynamo’s midfield training schedule is designed to prepare him for his return to training at the club. These will start in mid-June. Will Shimansky participate? It all depends on the health of the team-mainly Arkadiusz Milik. We heard that no one on the team called Szymański and he is calmly handling the matter. He is not fanatically following the health news from Opalenica, but instead trains every day to prepare to replace injured football players.
The end is coming. On Tuesday 18th, the Poles will play their last match before the European Cup in Poznan. The next day, they will move to Sopot’s game base. Maybe then a decision about Arkadiusz Milik will be made. The tournament will start on June 11. The Poles will play against Slovakia (June 14), Spain (June 19) and Sweden (June 23) in the group stage.
