Football: Poland to play friendlies in Wrocław and Gdańsk
PR dla Zagranicy
Football officials on Thursday confirmed that Wrocław and Gdańsk will be the venues for friendlies that will see Poland taking on Ireland and the Czech Republic in the autumn.
The national squad will play Ireland in the south-western Polish city of Wrocław on September 11, and the Czech Republic on November 15 in the northern Baltic port city of Gdańsk.
Both games will start at 8:45 p.m.
For now, though, manager Adam Nawałka’s men have their eyes set on the World Cup in Russia, where they will face off against Senegal, Colombia and Japan in the group stage of the tournament.
The Poles’ first World Cup match is against Senegal on June 19 in Moscow.
Poland will play friendlies against Chile and Lithuania before they depart for the tournament in Russia.
Meanwhile, the Polish team has been drawn to play Italy and Portugal in the group stage of the UEFA Nations League, a new competitive football format that would ultimately replace most international friendlies in Europe.
