The coach from Poland, Czesław Michniewicz, drew important conclusions after the victory against Chile in Warsaw. It was the opportunity to face a rival similar to two that they will have in the next World Cup: Argentina and Mexico.
“We did not choose Chile by chance. It is a team that likes to keep the ball, which we cannot. I won’t be showing this to players for a few days. That’s why we want to do what we can, and not the other way around.” explained about the match against the Chilean team.
However, when comparing, he put the Red one step below. “The matches against Mexico and Argentina will look similar (to Chile), but three and five times faster, respectively. How much possession will we have then? Fractions! Hahaha, I’m kidding. But we prepare for what is going to happen and how we are going to play”.
Poland will begin their route against Mexico, then they will face Saudi Arabia and close the group stage against Argentina. In that calendar, the duel against the team led by Gerardo Martino appears as the crucial duel in their aspirations. “Chile was comfortable with the ball at their feet, which is similar to Mexico. The difference is that the Mexicans have many more players like Arturo Vidal and Alexis Sánchez.”
Finally, “many complain about their coach, and I see the methodical work and the idea of the game, a better team than Chile, better players and more discipline,” he said.
