POLAND

Daily Mail - - World Cup 2018 -

THE BOSS ADAM NAWALKA

For­mer mid­fielder, 60, who played for Poland at the 1978 World Cup and sold cars be­fore qual­i­fy­ing as a coach. Lost on penal­ties to Por­tu­gal in the Euro 2016 last eight.

THE STAR ROBERT LE­WANDOWSKI

Fac­ing the Bay­ern Mu­nich striker (right) is the ul­ti­mate chal­lenge for a de­fender. He is an in­ter­est­ing bet for the Golden Boot.

THE PROSPECT PIOTR ZIELINSKI

An at­tack­ing mid­fielder, 24, who is com­fort­able on ei­ther flank and a fix­ture in the Napoli side that pushed Ju­ven­tus close in Serie A this sea­son.

KEY STRENGTH

Hav­ing one of Europe’s best strik­ers is a big plus... but he needs help along­side him.

BIG­GEST WEAK­NESS

They are over-re­liant on Le­wandowski. Poland let a 2-0 lead slip against South Korea in March af­ter he went off — hav­ing to bat­tle to a hard-fought 3-2 vic­tory.
