Boniek Optimistic in Poland UEFA EURO 2016 Qualifying Chances

WARSAW, Poland. June 19 (PSN) – Six matches, fourteen points and first place in their group – these are the current achievements of the Polish national team in qualifying for UEFA EURO 2016.

The bialo-czerwoni are in an excellent starting position and all indications are that they will go to France.

An optimist in this regard is the president of the Polish Football Association (PZPN), Zbigniew Boniek.

The head of Polish football does not boast too highly, because he knows that later in the fall Poland will have some very difficult tests awaiting them – such the second games with Germany, Scotland and Ireland.

“We’re playing well, efficiently, with confidence. Yet we must be cautious, nothing big has happened yet,” Boniek confessed during a conversation with “Sport”.

“I can only say that we will win with Gibraltar. In the matches with Germany, Scotland and Ireland we need to collect three points. That should be enough. When you ask me if it’s a realistic task, I say yes. I bet that we will go to France. If we were to fail, I wouldn’t be happy,” he added.

UEFA EURO 2016 will be held in France – the first time in history – where as many as 24 teams will complete.

Poland is currently three points clear of Scotland (play-off position) and five over Ireland.
