Scotland hosts Poland in a friendly international match. The match will be played on Thursday, March 24th at Hampden Park (Glasgow)
Scotland is one of the first national teams in the history of football. But in the 21st century, it did not have any special achievements. And the Scots managed to draw attention to themselves again only in the last qualifications. First, they were promoted to the Euro through an additional quota of the Nations League. And it was the first such tournament since 1998! However, Steve Clark’s men were limited only to a draw, but don’t forget that they faced England at Wembley Stadium. And most importantly, the participation itself inspired the Scots. They significantly stepped up in the fall, and having won all six of the last matches (including against Denmark), they took second place in their group. Now there will only be a warm-up against the Poles, as the playoffs have been postponed to the summer.

Poland was one of the main reasons for FIFA’s decision to disqualify the Russian national team. At first, individual players flatly refused to play against it, and then there was an official statement. As a result, the White and Reds will have to go through one round of the playoffs. They will play against Sweden or the Czech Republic. While these opponents will be fighting, the coaching staff of Poland can field any lineup in Glasgow. On the other hand, this will be the debut of Czeslaw Michniewicz, who replaced the scandalous Paulo Bento. So far, he has changed little, although it is worth noting that he did not invite Davidovicz, Gumny, Linetty, and Klich who play for clubs from the top European championships. However, the main thing is that Lewandowski is in the ranks and in great shape.
These national teams crossed paths back in 1965. Then the Poles turned out to be a little stronger: 1-1 at home and 2-1 away. Then the teams played in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, and both matches ended in a 2-2 draw. Now the Scots do not need to save strength, unlike their opponents. Let’s risk betting on the hosts to win with a zero handicap.
