Coach: Lewandowski’s injury before the Euro does not seem serious

Robert Lewandowski’s participation in Euro 2024 does not seem to be in danger after the captain of the Polish national team had to leave the pitch on Monday evening due to an injury in the last preparatory match.

“It’s just a light injury and we hope there will be no problems,” said coach Michał Probierz in the evening.

During Poland’s 2-1 win over Turkey in Warsaw, the Barcelona forward was substituted in the 32nd minute due to thigh muscle problems.

The injury has raised concerns about his participation in the European Championships in Germany, which Poland will start on Sunday against the Netherlands, with France and Austria their other group stage rivals.

The situation of Lewandowski’s attacking partner, Karol Świderski from Hellas Weron, seems more serious, as he also had to leave the field early after spraining his ankle while celebrating the first goal of the match.

“Karol sprained his ankle. We will only know what the situation is after further research. At the moment, however, I don’t think I will call up another player,” said Probierz.
