This may seem illogical, because the selector itself narrows the scope of activity. Time is very difficult, because this season is very demanding, Coronavirus Before this championship, he had eliminated some players. Paulo Sousa seems to see this in other categories. For him, the atmosphere of the team and the internal bonds established are more important than the number of players.
-I have met my friends before, now I see my friends-the coach talked about how the two-week training camp affected the group of players he chose. Others echoed him: Łukasz Fabiański mentioned the enthusiasm within the team, Wojciech Szczęsny mentioned the closer connection, Piotr Zieliński mentioned the good atmosphere, and Mateusz Klich mentioned the ease off the court and the hard work on the court. He praised anyone who hadn’t asked about the atmosphere. Sousa can see the threat of introducing new players into such a merged team. In the case of replacing Arkadiusz Milik, the possible benefits will not compensate for any losses.
It’s hard to blame the selectors for inconsistency. From the training camp in Opalenica, he tried to combine polished forms with building connections in the team. As early as March, he knew that this would be a priority before the European Cup, so when visiting the Remes Hotel, he asked more about playgrounds and joint integration venues than about playgrounds. . Because it has nothing to do with the atmosphere of the team. Or at least not understood as joking together, listening to loud music and passing out in the middle of the locker room. If there is victory, everything will happen naturally. Has anyone quarreled after seeing a team win a game and didn’t want to play together? They may not like each other so much and don’t get along well, but after winning the game, they clap their hands evenly. Sosa hopes that the players will build a deeper relationship: they will get to know each other better and understand better, their families will become friends, their children will play together on the playground, and their parents will be in groups. Standing next to the training ground to watch his son training. -Great, I will not forget, I hope the players do the same-the Portuguese said at the press conference.
-We want to build a group. A family in which we will interact and have empathy. We can even create more things: the strong connection needed during the European Championships-Paulo Sousa said in the first video blog posted on the channel “Łączy nas ball”. This team has undergone major changes since the last major tournament in 2018, which seems more reasonable. Since then, she has never participated in a longer training camp and has time to get to know each other better. She has never seen herself in a year. The coach and the entire coaching team have changed. The other football players are the leaders of the group today, and the groups are different.
-There is an event company here, which prepares everything: games, outdoor activities, tasks that require multi-person cooperation. She also provided a bouncy castle for the children. There are open-air competitions, so it is a combination of fun, competition and integration. You cannot choose the grouping and grouping by yourself, you can only decide by drawing lots. This is about mixing. People from the coaching staff, service staff, football players and their families all participated in the event-Bartosz Remplewicz, the owner of the Opalenica Hotel, told Sport.pl.
PZPN organized many attractions for the players: they watched movies, had a great time at the Golców concert, laughed at Piotr Szumowski’s stand-up performance, played a game at FIFA 21, and extinguished the aircraft at the military base. With the Navy, a veteran of Unit Military GROM told them the importance of cooperation, fighting, and sacrifice in military missions.
If you believe in Paul Souza (and there is no reason not to, because the players and their families have also confirmed this in unofficial conversations), the plan is successful. The connection between players is closer. This group is united and integrated, has experienced some things, has shared experiences and memories. Therefore, introducing new players into such a well-coordinated gang may be a risk. Of course, this is not because of the call of Sebastian Szymański or Kamil Grosicki. This group will fall apart and therefore will not go to Europe, but the selector does not need additional confusion. It’s like a student has to change school for a while. He returned to the old class, he knew everyone, everyone knew him, but sometimes he still felt strange. He has not taken the same class, so his knowledge is slightly different from others. He has not traveled, so he does not have the same memory as his friends. After he left, they deepened their friendship.
Sebastian Himanski may be ready to replace Milik because he has been training for a few days according to the schedule of coach Dynamo Moscow. However, he doesn’t know the tactics, he doesn’t know the patterns. The most important thing is-this does not help to fill the void left by Milik, not this style of play, nor this position. It will not be filled by any players on the reserve roster: Robert Gumny, Rafał Augustyniak and Kamil Grosicki. Every attacker Paulo Sousa sees on this team, he will call immediately. Of course, if Jakub Świerczok is listed as the fifth substitute, he will be called now. However, the selector decided to call up as many as five strikers at once. It is undeniable that after Krzysztof Piątek and Arkadiusz Milik were injured, the offense was terrible, but at least the substitutes-Karol Świderski, Jakub Świerczok, Dawid Kownacki (he also has health problems and fights with sciatica)-participated in all training and knew Paul Souza’s thoughts.
I saw some questions, “So what is this reserve list for?” I suspect that if it wasn’t Arkadius Milik, but a midfielder or defender, the head coach would call someone to replace him, because he These positions can be replaced in the substitute. Gourney on the defensive end, Grosicki on the wing, Augustinak on the inside and Simanski on the wing or midfield. Concerns about atmosphere and introducing chaos are similar, as are the tactical shortcomings, but there are real benefits. When replacing Milik with another football player, there were not many such people.
