Football News: Lewandowski Set to Lead Poland’s Euro 2024 Charge Against Austria

Lewandowski’s Return Boosts Poland’s Euro 2024 Hopes

In a major boost for Poland’s Euro 2024 campaign, star striker Robert Lewandowski is set to return to action against Austria on Friday. Lewandowski, Poland’s all-time leading goalscorer, missed their opening Group D match against the Netherlands due to a thigh problem but is now expected to lead the line in what manager Michal Probierz has described as a “little final” for his side.

“He is the best Polish player of all time, and his performance makes a big difference,” Szczesny said. “I know the Austrians won’t be happy he is fit.”

Probierz, known for his stylish touchline attire, has echoed Szczesny’s sentiments, highlighting the significant impact Lewandowski’s availability will have on Poland’s overall approach and their opponents’ mindset.

“There is a big difference between having the best player in the world on the bench and whether he is available to play or not,” Probierz said.

Poland, who are set to face France in their final group match on Tuesday, understand the importance of securing a victory against Austria if they are to have any hopes of advancing to the knockout stage of Euro 2024.

“To come to Germany for two weeks, play three games and go home, I don’t want that,” Szczesny said. “I want to fight for some higher aims, and I believe this team can fight for it.”

With Lewandowski leading the line and the determination of the Polish squad, their clash against Austria on Friday evening promises to be a crucial encounter in the pursuit of advancing in the tournament.
