Poland have a host of talented players, but Super Eagles must pay attention to these players.
As the 2018 FIFA World Cup draws closer, the Super Eagles have begun preparations ahead of the summer tournament in Russia.
They take on Poland in a friendly game on Friday, March 23 at the Stadion Miejskim, the Municipal Stadium in Wrocław.
Poland are also preparing for the 2018 World Cup and have a slew of talented players.
From these talented players, we highlight five of them the Super Eagles must watch in Friday’s game.
1. Robert Lewandowski
Who else to start with that the main man himself, Lewandowski one of the best strikers in world football. Containing the striker should be Super Eagles number one priority,
This season, he has 23 goals in the Bundesliga for Bayern Munich, five in the Champions League and 31 in total.
His potency is not limited to just Bayern Munich, he netted 16 goals for Poland, the highest in Europe in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
He is the man to match.
2. Grzegorz Krychowiak
Grzegorz Krychowiak has not had a good season with West Brom but that doesn’t take away the fact that the midfielder is a hugely talented player.
The midfielder on-loan from Paris Saint-Germain is a tough man in midfield the Super Eagles has a battle against him in the middle.
3. Łukasz Piszczek
Might not be a popular name but Piszczek is definitely one of the best Polish players ahead of this friendly game.
The right-back started the season with Borussia Dortmund brightly and was fantastic as the went seven games unbeaten.
A torn ligaments kept him on the sidelines and Dortmund collapsed. Since his return to action, the 32-year-old has been brilliant and Dortmund has been unbeaten since.
The Super Eagles forward playing directly against him will have to be at his best.
4. Arkadiusz Milik
If you don’t know Milik, he is the striker Napoli splashed €35m- the highest sum for a Polish player- to replace Gonzalo Higuaín.
He started life at Napoli in brilliant form until an anterior cruciate ligament ruled him out for several weeks.
Although he has returned from that injury, he has struggled with his fitness this season.
Despite his injury problems, Poland manager Adam Nawałka has included him in the squad to face Nigeria and he remains a dangerous player.
5. Piotr Zieliński
Piotr Zieliński is another player the Super Eagles must pay attention to in the friendly game against Poland.
The 23-year-old playmaker has been impressive in midfielder this season with Napoli. With an eye for incisive passes and runs into the box, the Super Eagles must be well alert to stop the Napoli man from causing havoc.
