Poland will have to count on San Marino

Poland will have to count on San Marino

A mathematical chance to qualify for the FIFA World Cup 2010 South Africa™ still exists within Poland’s group, all the Poles need to qualify is only a miracle. For the Bialo-czerwoni to advance to the Play-Offs they need to take two victories in their last two matches and the aid of… San Marino.

Poland must defeat both the Czech Republic and Group leaders Slovakia, and hope that San Marino does not concede too many goals in the match with Slovenia.

In this situation, Poland could finish the eliminations with the same number of points as the country who on Wednesday defeated Leo Beenhakker’s team 3-0.

An good number of points on goal difference will decide the promotion of either side. Slovenia for the moment is the leading goal difference with +9, while Poland +8.

The chance of a high victory with either the Czechs or Slovaks is doubtful but there is every hope, or dream at least for the minimum result. Poland will at least need to end their last two qualifier matches with a +10 goal difference.

Assuming the defeat of Slovenia in Bratislava ends by one goal, Matjaž Kek’s team can only win a maximum of 2:0 on an away match with San Marino.

Stefan Majewski, coach of Poland’s national U-23 team will take the helm as Poland’s caretaker for the final two World Cup qualifiers.

Despite failing at the club level Majewski showed he can win with Poland as his U-23 side defeated Wales 2:1 in their last showdown. However, the question remains, can Majewski bring success for Poland in their final two qualifiers?

There is still a chance for Poland to make the Play-Offs, but it will all first depend on Poland’s next match against the Czech Republic in Prague. However, after the embaressing defeat experienced in Maribor the only thing Polish fans can expect is seeing yet another very high failure.

Can the Bialo-czerwoni surprise fans yet again?
