World Cup participations: 6
Greatest World Cup achievement: 3rd place (1974, 1982)
Poland has qualified in the group behind England, before
Austria, Wales and Northern Ireland as one of the best
second place teams.
With Jacek Krzynowek there is a known man in the midfield of Poland,
likewise in the attack with Zurawski of Celtic and Smolarek.
Old warhorse Jerzy Dudek lost his place between the posts to Celtic's
Artur Boruc who wants to keep his goal clean together with Poland's defenders.
Coach is Pawel Janas.
The strength of Poland is in the offensive, we are sure they will score
goals at the world cup. The question will be if the defence will be able
to keep up with that. Decisive about the promotion to the round of the
last 16 will presumably be the match against Ecuador, but
they will not go further than that.
The odds on Poland as world cup winner were quite high
- 126.0 at Betandwin.
For a bet on group winner Poland you get 5.0.
For a bet on Poland reaching the last 16 you get 1.33.
