Poland vs Saudi Arabia: Match Preview:

Having produced one of the greatest footballing shocks of all time in their 2022 World Cup opener, Poland are next on Saudi Arabia’s hit-list.

The team ranked 51st in the world face a striker to rival Argentina captain Lionel Messi in Poland skipper Robert Lewandowski, who missed a penalty for his side in their underwhelming 0-0 draw with Mexico.

With a wounded Argentina still to come, Lewandowski and his teammates will see this as a must-win match.

Team News:


Czeslaw Michniewicz arrived in Qatar with a fully fit squad at his disposal.

Despite the disappointment of an opening day draw, Poland appear to have emerged from their tie with Mexico unscathed – although, centre-back Kamil Glik did sustain two blows to the head.

Saudi Arabia:

A serious head injury suffered by Yasser Al-Shahrani was a sour note in a match so historic, a Saudi Arabian national holiday was declared in its honour.

Goalkeeper Mohammed Al-Owais collided forcefully with his teammate in the second half. Before departing on a stretcher, Al-Shahrani gave a double thumbs-up but he reportedly fractured his jaw and left facial bones.

Salman Al- Faraj also limped off on the cusp of half-time with a hamstring injury.

Poland vs Saudi Arabia: Head to Head:

This will be the fifth-ever meeting between the sides, with Poland winning each of their previous four encounters.

Poland and Saudi Arabia first met in April 1994, when Tomasz Wieszczycki netted an 86th-minute winner to hand Biało-Czerwoni a 1-0 friendly victory.

Their most recent encounter came in March 2006 at the King Fahd International Stadium, where Poland secured a 2-1 win.
