Poland will be looking to record back-to-back wins for the first time ever in Euro history Thursday, but it’ll take a top effort against the Germans.
Poland won their first-ever Euro match in their opener against Northern Ireland, holding the squad to just a single shot. Poland registered 18 shots in that match, with the lone goal coming courtesy of Arkadiusz Milik.
Milik shares the front line with Robert Lewandowski, who is Poland’s most dangerous threat. That being said, the Bayern striker was held without a shot against Northern Ireland. If he wants to score against Germany, he’ll do so against a handful of Bayern teammates in Germany’s lineup.
Poland also have a big change at the back, as Wojciech Szczesny will not be available for Thursday’s clash. The Arsenal keeper suffered a thigh injury against Northern Ireland, and will be replaced by either Lukasz Fabianski or Artur Boruc, who play club soccer for Swansea and Bournemouth respectively.
Here’s the details for the match:
