NAWALKA FEELS THE PAIN

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

To go only as far as the Round of 8 in Euro without facing a single normal-time defeat does pain a lot to Adam Nawalka, but, the coach says the fact that the Red and Whites did not come second to any team in the one and half hours of normal play is a sign that they are much stronger than the past.

The only thing that Poland did wrong in the Euro was that they could only convert 3 out of their 4 shots in the shootout in the pre quarter final, while, the opponent Portugal converted all their 5 shots and so advanced.

Poland’s run, if that missed shootout shot in Marseille is taken out, was nearly flawless, but, one error and unfortunately, no other opportunity thereafter.

According to Nawalka, to miss a shot in the shootout and to have to pay that big a cost of it was ‘brutal’, but, the campaign has given him optimism that there are some bright times ahead for the team.

Nawalka was quoted as, “This Euro showed how far we have come with our Football. Nobody could down us in the normal two halves at any point in the competition and that I can mention with pride because some brilliant teams came our way.”

“Any player can fail to hit a penalty into the net on a certain day, but, you don’t want to be going out like that for sure. It was a brutal end of our journey, as brutal as it could have been.”

“Every day we work together, our purpose is that we have to get better than yesterday and I think our purpose is still going to be the same. It’s about trying to achieve the excellence all the time.”

Poland happy with current results

Monday, October 20th, 2014

Poland has clinched victories over Gibraltar and Germany in their qualifying matches for the 2016 Euro’s but in their latest match, the Polish team had to settle with a 2-2 draw when playing with Scotland.

Despite only being able to collect 1 point against Scotland, the coach of the Polish squad Adam Nawalka has revealed that he and his squad are happy with the final result.

The team of Adam Nawalka has somehow managed to remain undefeated and is currently located at the very top of Group D with 7 points; they have the same amount of points as Republic of Ireland.

“We are satisfied with a point considering we were one goal down. It is good that we managed to recover. The last 30 minutes looked very good and I regret that time ran out so fast and we did not manage to score a winner. The European qualifiers have just started and we are in a very tough group’’ The manager of Poland Adam Nawalka said after the match reached its end.

The Polish squad is making history and appearing in headlines of websites and newspapers from all over the world as Poland was able to defeat Germany with a score of 2-0. This defeat was the first one that the German side suffered in a qualifier game since 1998 and their first loss in a competitive qualifying match in 7 years.

It certainly was a huge shocker when the match between Poland and Germany concluded and the Polish squad came out with the stunning and unforeseen triumph.

The tables have been turning around in the Group D of the 2016 Euro’s qualifiers as Germany was initially expected to be the squad to secure the top spot of the group without facing much difficulty in collecting positive results but now its Poland, the team that is looking like the team to beat.

Of course there are more than 5 qualifying matches left to be played which is more than enough for Germany to start making their charge for the top spot of the group and things can certainly change in the next months but Joachim Low and his players have to start getting their things together and demonstrate why they were crowned as the champions of the world.

LEWANDOWSKI SUSPENDED

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

Borussia Dortmund’s striker Robert Lewandowski will be suspended for the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final clash against Real Madrid. This is a major blow for the German club since the Polish international scored all four goals against the Spanish outfit when the two sides met each other in the Champions League knockout stages last season. Dortmund managed to qualify for the final 4-1 on aggregate after beating the Spanish club. Lewandowski totally overshadowed his opponents like Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo.

He will not have a chance to show his quality against the Spanish club in the first leg since he is suspended after receiving your booking in Dortmund’s 2-1 defeat against Zenit St Petersburg. Despite this defeat, Dortmund managed to qualify for the quarter-finals after barely hanging on to the 4-2 win in the first leg. Lewandowski was given a yellow card during the match, which will see him miss the first leg. The 25-year-old, who recently announced his decision to join Bayern Munich on a free transfer in the summer, says that it is extremely disappointing to miss out on such a big match.

Lewandowski has said that the suspension has made him realise the importance of the second leg and he is highly motivated for it.

“I have driven myself crazy over the annoying yellow card and hope that we leave Madrid with a good result. Then I’d be even more motivated for the return leg – I have had a good experience against Real. I believe that we can still go through, even if Real are the favourites and are in top form. We can once more annoy Bayern,” said the striker, who has promised 100% commitment to Dortmund until he leaves the club. He has signed a mega contract worth around £ 75 million over the next five years with Bayern Munich.

SIGNING FOR BAYERN

Friday, March 7th, 2014

Lewandowski signed a 5 year contract with Bayern Munich that will see him playing with the German giants at the end of the current season but the Polish forward revealed that Szczesny was trying to lure him to join Arsenal.

“I can confirm that Wojciech Szczesny tried to convince me to join Arsenal. We had several talks about this. It was him who did most of the talking, how the club looks inside, what Arsène Wenger thinks of me. When we trained before the Champions League games at Colney, there were important people from Arsenal at our sessions as well.” Lewandowski revealed.

Arsenal failed on signing Lewandowski but still is trying to secure the services of Julian Draxler from Schalke 04.

In the past few years Borussia Dortmund has seen some of their stars being lured away from the club with the most recent cases being Nuri Sahin who signed with Real Madrid, Shinji Kagawa who plays for Manchester United and Mario Gotze who also made a move to Bayern Munich.

Jurgen Klopp now has to think about who will be replacing Robert Lewandowski for the upcoming season with Mario Mandzukic, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and many other names emerging as possible options.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has a contract with PSG that runs up until 2016 but the Swedish forward admitted that he would like to play for 1 last club before announcing his retirement which gives a chance for Klopp to sign the former Ac.Milan player for the last few years of his career.

Mario Mandzukic is another viable option for Borussia Dortmund as Lewandowski will be replacing Mandzukic and it seems hard to believe that he will be content on staying on the bench instead of joining a club where he can get a guaranteed spot into the main team and Borussia Dortmund might just be his best choice.

Uganda lined up for friendly

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

Uganda is supposed to play a friendly match with the National team of Poland on 5th of March 2014.

The Polish team consists of very notable players such as the Captain, Robert Lewandowski. He is one of the integral part and the best striker for the Polish National Side. In the 2011-12, season he had won the reputed DFB-Pokal Cup. The other players whose presence is vital for the Polish team are Arsenal’s Wojciech Szczesny, Jakub Błaszczykowski and Eugen Polanski.

This match would give an opportunity to the Uganda Cranes to create an impression on the European Scouts. But there has been some internal unrest in the Poland team where Robert Lewandowski revealed the fact that he had been convinced to join Arsenal by his Polish team mate Wojciech Szczesny. This was told by Lewandowski to the Polish tabloid Fakt. He also mentioned that Szczesny always spoke of how the club was from inside and what Arsène Wenger thought of him.

Nevertheless, for a friendly match that has to be played with Poland will cause the FUFA technical committee to call for a meeting and select a strong team shortly.
