Match Preview

Poland's Recent Form and Prospects

Poland comes into this game on a high, having secured a 3-1 victory over Ukraine in their latest friendly.

This victory marked Poland's fourth consecutive win, showcasing their strong form heading into Euro 2024. Michal Probierz's team is gearing up for a challenging group stage where they will face the Netherlands, Austria, and France.

Key players for Poland include their captain Robert Lewandowski, who is also the national team's all-time leading goalscorer, with 82 goals.

The team also boasts experienced players like goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, and midfielders Kamil Grosicki and Piotr Zielinski. However, the squad will miss Arkadiusz Milik due to a knee injury.

Turkey's Recent Form and Prospects

Turkey, on the other hand, is coming off a goalless draw with Italy. They have had a mixed run of form recently, with their last win being a standout 2-1 victory against Germany in a friendly late last year.

Turkey's coach, Vincenzo Montella, has been refining his squad, with key players like Cenk Tosun and Kerem Akturkoglu expected to make an impact.

Turkey will play in Group F at Euro 2024 alongside Georgia, Portugal, and the Czech Republic. Their best performance in the European Championship was in 2008, when they reached the semi-finals.

This time, they aim to advance past the group stages after being knocked out early in the last two tournaments.
