Forerunner of the match Poland - Netherlands
Important test for the Polish Representation just before UEFA European Championship
It’s the last but one test for the Polish National Football Team before UEFA European Championship, which will began on the 10th of June on French ground. The Representation under the lead of Adam Nawałka will play against the Representation of Netherlands. It will be the first match beetwen these two teams after sixteen years.
For Polish players this match will have a huge importance – they will play with one of the best football teams in the world only a couple of days before one of the most important football event. The last few matches played by Polish national team give hope. They won with Iceland (4:2), Czech Republic (3:1) and Serbia (whose players are in such important football clubs as Chelsea, Machester City and CSKA Moscow).
The Polish national team will have an opportunity to play in UEFA European Championship, while the Dutch will watch it only in TV. They lost badly the prelims and for the first time in 32 years they won’t play in the Euros finals.
The Dutch may already think about prelims for the FIFA World Cup in Russia. The match with Poland will be the chance to check their forces. They have such strong teams as France and Switzerland as well as Bulgaria, Belarus and Luxembourg in their group.
The match on Stadion Energa Gdańsk will be the first match of Poland and Netherlands in sixteen years. The last time the teams met just before the Euros 2000, which was organized by Netherlands and Belgium. Then Polish team lost 1:3 in Lausanne.
We all hope for a great match on the 1st of June on Stadion Energa Gdańsk.
