Poland Football Team Histories

The story of the Polish national team is one of highs and lows. In the golden age (1970-1986),

was one of the top teams around the globe, placing second in both World Cups and winning a gold medal in the 1972 Olympics. However, it took 48 years to be able to compete for the initial time. European Championships, a feat that he eventually won in the year 2008. The team plays home matches at the opulent National Stadium in Warsaw.

After another shaky World Cup qualifying campaign, which left them behind former opponents England, Poland did well in qualifying for Euro 2016 qualifiers. The team used a very defensive method which enabled the team to score just one goal in their group phase. On the other hand of the field, his offensive performance did not meet expectations as Lewandowski as well as Arkadios Malik failed to make the most of several excellent chances.

After defeating Northern Ireland 1-0 to win their first European Championship, Poland drew 1-1 with Germany and defeated Ukraine by 1-0 to move up their group. They were able to beat Switzerland by winning the match 5-4 in the penalty shootout. The match ended in the quarterfinals, where they faced the eventual champions Portugal which took the game 5-3 in penalties. It was the Poland football team’s greatest performance in the course of a major tournament for 34 years.

Before the 2018 World Cup, Poland was placed eighth in the FIFA world rankings, which prompted many journalists to label it among the black horses of the World Cup. They lost their opening two matches to Senegal and Colombia, which instantly reduced their chances of making the group level to zero. The 1-0 victory against Japan at the end of their final game was only a tiny relief however overall it was a disappointing World Cup performance.

It has 47,246 seats. This stadium has been renovated to 55,211 seats before it was reopened in the month of October 2017. In 1993 the stadium was designated the official stadium of the Polish national team. In 2011 the Warsaw stadium Narudoi was built which could hold 58.580 fans.

Poland football team Kits

Poland football team uniforms reflect the colors of the flag, which is red and white. The only difference is small specifics (there were stripes on the homemade socks during the 1920s) The design hasn’t changed much since 1921. The standard kit is comprised of white with red shorts along with white socks. The uniform for the round is entirely red (although it’s sometimes combined with white or black shorts). In rare instances, when outdoor and indoor kits clash with each other the third color option is available, generally with blue or black (currently navy blue, with sleeves of red and white).

The kit is typically embellished with a Polish coat of arms. It is including the white-crowned Eagle. Up until 2006, it was this Eagle on the arms that featured just “POLSKA” written in capital letters, and not that of PZPN, the official logo for PZPN, the National Football Federation, like another national team. Euro 2012 kits were the first ones to sport an official PZPN logo. The kit was not equipped with the coat of arms when it was first launched, but it was quickly reinstated. From 2009 on, Nike has provided kits.
