Poland men’s 5-a-side football team has been in training in Warsaw recently ahead of their IBSA European Championship debut in August in Hereford, England. The team in training includes Dawid Lament, Martin Jung, and Grzegorz Jakubowski. They are coached by Lubomir Prask.
Poland is in scheduled to be in Group A, along with England, Turkey, Germany and Italy at the European Championships. The competition should be a challenge for the country. Great Britain finished second at the 2015 IBSA World Games earlier this year, while Turkey finished sixth.
The Polish program is still in development, with the team having competed at last year’s IBSA Euro Challenge Cup along with other developing countries like Moldova, Belgium, Czech Republic, Romania and Hungary. Poland finished third after beating Hungary 4 – 1 in the bronze medal match.
