However, Poland could not perform to the expected levels after successive defeats in the tournament so far. They lost 2-1 to Japan in their opening fixture and 3-0 to Senegal in the second fixture.

Grzegorz Krychowiak (PSG)

[spacer height=”20px”]

The defensive midfielder was a budding star at Sevilla under Unai Emery, but he struggled badly after following Emery to PSG, resulting in a loan move to West Brom. With his club future up in the air, he’ll want to put together a good show albeit the last chance.

Krychowiak is an extremely talented defensive midfielder. When at his best, he can deliver top performances. He is the only Polish scorer till now with one in the game against Senegal.

There are lots of changes expected as the team has underperformed so far. The captain and coach will surely look to give fair chances to their bench and hence a wholesale swap is expected with Poland having zero chances of getting through to the Round of 16.
