In the match against Turkey last Monday, Lewandowski was injured with a muscle problem. National coach Michal Probierz already announced that the striker will not be able to play against the Netherlands on Sunday. However, he is back on the field doing running exercises. "There is progress with Lewandowski," Probierz said during a press moment.

"He will start training again. It was difficult to assess how severe his injury was. The tear could have been large or small. But he is likely to be fit for the match against Austria." This update comes as a relief to Polish fans who are counting on Lewandowski's prowess for their team's success in the tournament. His recovery is being closely monitored by the medical staff, who are working tirelessly to ensure he returns to full fitness.

Additionally, Probierz mentioned that Karol Swiderski, who also got injured against Turkey, has already resumed training with the group. "We are getting them all back on their feet, so everyone will be available as soon as possible. The medical staff is doing a great job," he said, praising the efforts of the team’s medical personnel. Swiderski’s return to training is a positive sign, and his presence is crucial for Poland’s attacking strategy, especially in their preferred 3-5-2 formation.

Pawel Dawidowicz trained separately from the group, but it is expected that he and Swiderski will be available for the match against the Netherlands. Dawidowicz’s separate training is a precautionary measure to ensure he does not aggravate any potential issues and can contribute effectively once he returns to full training with the squad.

The Netherlands and Poland will face each other on Sunday at 3:00 PM in their first group match of this European Championship. This encounter is highly anticipated, as both teams are eager to start the tournament with a strong performance. The fitness of key players like Lewandowski, Swiderski, and Dawidowicz will be vital for Poland as they aim to secure a positive result in their opening game. The coaching staff and medical team remain optimistic about their players' recovery and are hopeful that they will be ready to compete at their highest level.
