Lewandowski to Miss Poland’s Initial Euro 2024 Clash Due to Injury

Poland kicks off their Euro 2024 endeavor against the Netherlands this Sunday but must soldier on without their ace, Robert Lewandowski.

The captain hobbled off during the 32nd minute in Poland’s last tune-up match versus Turkiye, necessitating medical attention on his thigh. Despite initial optimism from head coach Michal Probierz, the Polish FA has declared Lewandowski unfit for the upcoming clash in Hamburg due to his injury.

Injuries have also sidelined Karol Swiderski and Pawel Dawidowicz, dampening team spirits as the Eagles grapple with Arkadiusz Milik’s absence because of a knee affliction. However, reports affirm that both should recover in time for their initial Group D skirmish.

A bulletin from the Polish FA noted, “Post-match assessments revealed Dawidowicz with a strained quadriceps, while Swiderski sustained a minimally damaging ankle twist. We expect their return to full training shortly after three to four days of care.”

Lewandowski, Poland’s record holder with 150 caps and 82 goals, faces a hiatus due to a torn biceps femoris muscle, sidelining him from Sunday’s game.

Lewandowski is determined to rebound for the crucial matches against Austria on June 21, and France four days thereafter, as Poland navigates through Group D.
