Robert Lewandowski or Zlatan Ibrahimovic. One of them will surely be left out of the 2022 World Cup today. In the case of the Swede, given his age (he turns 41 on October 3, the month before the race in Qatar, which runs from November 21 to December 18), this will be his last chance to be at an event. of this order of magnitude.
Both players arrive a little limited to this decisive challenge. The Polish captain (he will turn 34 in November) complained of knee pain last week, did specific work and only trained the day before yesterday.
Everything indicates, however, that he will start in Czeslaw Michniewicz’s first real match at the head of the selection, after the resignation of Paulo Sousa, who has decided to leave the post to coach Flamengo. Polish fans, however, expect Lewandowski to be as sharp as Bayern: 31 goals in 27 Bundesliga games, plus 12 in the Champions League.
