GENEVA, Switzerland. December 16 (PSN) – The Polish national team have learned who their group opponents will be in the next edition of the UEFA Nations League.
The Bialo-czerwoni will certainly have no easy task, as next year they will have to face Belgium, the Netherlands and Wales.
Poland have once again continued to be ranked in League A, the highest division of the UEFA Nations League, for the third time in a row now. In the previous edition of the competition, Robert Lewandowski and co were able to take third place in their group, which is how they managed to remain among Europe’s elite.
Due to the Poles being drawn from Pot 3, it was guaranteed that they would not meet the likes of the English, Swiss or Croatians in the group stage.
However, instead they will need to take on the Belgians and the Dutch, alongside the Welsh next year.
Belgium are currently number one in the FIFA World rankings. They took third place in the last FIFA World Cup and were knocked out in the quarter-finals at UEFA EURO 2020.
The Netherlands are also impressively ranked at 10th place. They lost in the 1/8 finals to the Czech Republic in the UEFA EURO 2020 but now are led again by Louis van Gaal.
In turn, Robert Page’s Wales find themselves in 19th place (Poland is 27th).
The first UEFA Nations League games will take place in June 2022, which will have four matchdays. The rest will be scheduled for September, while the final tournament is to be held in the summer of 2023.
