Poland Preview, Predictions, Players and Stats

Poland are currently ranked 8th in the world by FIFA and anyone can underestimate them. They are highly motivated for the biggest world tournament after 12 years. They have finished qualification campaign with five points ahead of Denmark in a group. Here's everything you need to know about the team:

Poland have the same team who reached Euro 2016 quarter-finals where they lost on penalties to eventual champions Portugal. They have played very well in qualifications with dropping just five points and averaged 2.8 goals per game. They like to play aggressive in attack and for sure they will try to score on each game this summer in Russia. But they have big problems to play strong in defending and they have conceded 14 goals in their qualifiers.

FIFA Ranking: 8

Poland Prediction and Expectations on World Cup 2018

It's the first World Cup since 2006 for Poland and all players are highly motivated to go through and reach at least quarter-finals. They have high ambitions, and also have plenty of talented players to do that. It could be the last chance to play on the biggest stage for strikers Robert Lewandowski and he will be their key player on the tournament. Poland play in Matchday 1 against Senegal and it will be their most important game in Russia. It is must win game for them and we expect a true football fight. Also we expect from Poland easy to beat Japan and if succeed to collect six points from these two games then they have a chance.
