Joachim Löw, manager of the German national team, shared his expectations from the Polish team, the Bundesteam’s opponent in Group C – along with Ukraine and Northern Ireland.
“Poland is a well-organized squad, and that’s their main strength. They wait for the opponent to commit a mistake, and then they counter. That’s their style, and it’s based on fast switching to counter-attacks. In this regard, Poland is even stronger than Ukraine, as the Poles are a more flexible squad. It is one of the best counter-attacking teams I’ve seen for the last couple of years. All of five games I played against Poland as a coach were difficult. I expect we’ll possess ball more, as the Poles like to stick to their defense. That’s why we’ll need fast players in the attack”, Joachim Löw said as quoted by UEFA.com.
