In big games, you seek for heroes, heroes who can lift not only the team but the entire community, and for Poland, Robert Lewandowski will have to be that hero tonight!
He hasn’t been at the top of his game in the first two matches and that has largely been due to the service (or the lack of service) from the midfield.
However, even without Lewandowski’s brilliance upfront, Poland have managed to get three points against their name, with a win against the fiery Northern Ireland. So, if and when Lewandowski steps up, Poland could really go deep into this tournament.
Ukraine haven’t really gotten off the mark in this Euro Championship, having failed to register even one goal in both their games. A victory against Poland could help their cause to reach the knockouts, as part of the 4 third placed teams, but it still would be a long shot.
On the other hand Poland could go top of the table with a victory tonight, if Germany lose to Northern Ireland.
Szczesny is still not fit and would undergo a fitness test before the game.
