What follows after this commercial
“In training, we work more on the game with the head than with the ball. »These words come straight from the mouth of Polish coach Czesław Michniewicz and set the scene for the round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup which awaits the French team, this Sunday (4 p.m.), in Qatar. Renowned for his very defensive approach to football, the man nicknamed the "Polish Mourinho" continues to proudly assume its principles of play, clearly observed in Białe Orły since the start of the tournament. In a pre-match press conference this Saturday, Czesław Michniewicz made it clear that his team wouldn't be here without him.
“The only statistics are the result and the place in the standings, first recalled the 52-year-old technician. The leaderboard does not recognize other statistics. We played the match against Arabia with great success on the offensive (2-0 victory). In the match against Argentina (0-2 defeat), the opponent did not allow us to do this. »If Poland managed to get out of Group C, the insipid offensive performances of Robert Lewandowski's partners have not gone unnoticed since the start of the Qatari World Cup. An aspect that Michniewicz does not care about, who split a nice punchline. Michniewicz imagines himself "provisional world champion"
“Those who have not played in defense are already at home. It was our tactic to get out of the group. What they (journalists) write, what they say is normal in this profession, but I knew what I was getting into and I'm proud to be here. » And the Polish coach to warn. “This match (against Les Bleus) will be completely different. You have to cut yourself off from what was in the group. We have to deserve the mistakes of our opponents, but if we don't put pressure on them, the French won't make them. »
In view of the convictions of Czesław Michniewicz and the fact that Poland works a lot on set pieces, in particular, we should not expect to see a great show on Sunday at Al Thumama Stadium. This does not mean that the boss of the White Eagles does not believe in qualifying for the quarter-finals in Qatar, quite the contrary.
“In boxing, when you face the world champion in the ring and beat him, you become world champion. If we beat France tomorrow (Sunday), we can therefore consider ourselves "provisional world champions" », he thus dropped, in his legendary style. A feeling of achievable achievement shared by Arkadiusz Milik. Milik:
“Defending against Mbappé? I think we have to come back with guys on scooters!
“Tomorrow we will play a fantastic match against the world champions. It's a dream come true for all of us. Getting out of the group was our goal, but we all want to keep playing, warned the former OM striker, who explained that the group was totally uninhibited. There are things we want and need to improve in order to continue playing in this tournament. We don't feel pressure, we don't impose it on ourselves, we know we can play football. I don't really focus on how the rival feels, if he's confident. That does not bother me. We know we are playing against world champions, but we focus on ourselves and we will do everything to stand up to them. »Piotr Zieliński, also present in front of the media this Saturday, went in this direction, confirming the confidence reigning within this selection.
“When I look at our national team, there is a good atmosphere and a good attitude inside this match. We can afford to fight France and qualify. We will do everything to do so. We are a good team. »One of the factors to take into account, for them, will obviously be the presence of Kylian Mbappé in front of them. In this regard, Arek Milik amused the gallery by having an original idea to compete against the speed of KM7. “How to defend against Kylian Mbappé? I think we have to come back with guys on scooters, dropped the Juventus striker, before resuming in a more serious tone. Seriously, it's hard to play against one of the best players in the world. The team is very important, because no one can stop it. » It remains to be seen whether the diabolical plan reserved for the French will be enough to hoist Poland into the quarter-finals for the first time since 1982.
