[VIDEO] Behind the scenes of the match in which we bid farewell to a legend
Truly unique 'behind the scenes' content from the Polish national team match. It tells the hero's journey of Łukasz Piszczek from the beginning to the end; from his arrival at the training camp, to official training sessions, a short stay at the hotel, the game against Slovenia at the PGE Narodowy Stadium itself and the memorable, extremely emotional moment when he left the field, to him going to the stadium suite during half-time to see his friends and loved ones, including Jakub Błaszczykowski and Łukasz Fabiański. A mandatory watch for every national team fan. Simply a must-see!
Striking goals and victory at the end of qualifiers!
Although the highlight of the match against Slovenia was supposed to be bidding farewell to Lukasz Piszczek, the fans at the PGE Narodowy Stadium simply enjoyed a very good match. A match against an opponent displaying well-executed, technical plays, featuring a glimpse of Robert Lewandowski's genius, Sebastian Szymański's debut goal and a victory – that's how the white-and-reds concluded the UEFA EURO 2020 qualifiers and the year 2019.
Adam Buksa – a universal soldier
It is rare for strikers to score such goals at all, let alone twice in one match. And yet, during a game against Arka Gdynia, Adam Buksa stunned most observers. The Pogoń Szczecin striker did it first by taking an intelligent, technical shot from a distance along the ground, and then with a decisive shot at the goal. On Monday, he could find his name on the list of players called up for the matches of the Poland national team against the Czech Republic and Portugal – for the first time in his career.
The growing up "Lewy", impressive Kuba and irreplaceable Cech
For geopolitical reasons, the history of matches with our southern neighbour is relatively short, as it consists of only seven games. However, this does not mean that it lacks moments which became embedded in fans' memories.
