Poland vs Portugal UEFA Nations League
Poland hopes to clinch its first success of the competition. Portugal hopes to go outside.
State of form
Ultra-disappointing and eliminated from the group stages at the last World Cup 2018, Poland has signed two games without a setback since this disillusionment. After hitting Italy outside on the first day of the League of Nations (1-1), Kamil Glik’s partners then conceded another draw against Ireland in friendly, but at home this times (1-1).
For its part, Portugal out of 2 successful home games, all without his superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, absent from the selection since the defeat against Uruguay in the 8th finals of the world. Indeed, the teammates of Bernardo Silva first held Croatia in check in friendly (1-1), before overthrowing Italy for their entry into the League of Nations (1-0).
Headcount for Poland vs Portugal
Poland has changed almost nothing to their group of players compared to the last rally. One can nevertheless mention the absence of the former lateral of the OL, Rybus (Lokomotiv Moscow). The group is led by his captain Lewandowski (Bayern Munich), who will celebrate his 100th with his selection, as well as executives Szczesny (Juventus), Glik (Monaco), Jedrzejczyk (Legia Warsaw), Blaszczykowski (Wolfsburg), Grosicki (Hull City), Krychowiak (Lokomotiv Moscow) or Milik (Naples), as well as nuggets Zielinski (Naples), Linetty (Sampodria) or Piatek (Genoa, current top scorer in Serie A). To note the presence of the middle of Amiens, Rafal Kurzawa.
Same situation for Portugal who has changed only 2 men in his squad: exit Rony Lopes (Monaco) and Gelson Martins (Atletico Madrid), replaced by Helder Costa (Wolverhampton) and the hero of the Euro 2016 Eder ( Lokomotiv Moscow). Injured against Barcelona, striker Guedes (Valencia) is also forfeited, as the star Cristiano Ronaldo, still absent for personal reasons. In a group still rejuvenated, we find the leaders Rui Patricio (Wolverhampton) to the goal, Pepe (Besiktas), Cancelo (Juventus) and Mario Rui (Naples) in defense, Bernardo Silva (Man City), William Carvalho (Betis Seville ) and Renato Sanches (Bayern Munich) in the middle, as well as André Silva (Sevilla FC) or Bruma (Leipzig) in attack. Just back on the lawns after a long injury, the left side Guerreiro (Dortmund) was not retained.
