The Italian football association, unlike the Poles, does not intend to stick to UEFA's rigidity. Before Saturday's meeting with Portugal in Milan as part of the League of Nations (0-0) Juventus player Giorgio Chiellini received from Italian federation president Gabriele Gravina, a souvenir statue for the 100th Italian appearance. Chiellini is the seventh Italian soccer player who plays in the squad at least 100 times.
Robert Lewandowski was not awarded
Very interesting because recently a similar yubile was celebrated in the white-red team by Robert Lewandowski. The FC Bayern Münster striker before the meeting with Portugal, however, was not given by PZPN. Why? Unions are explained by UEFA regulations. – We are not planning such a ceremony due to the fact that it is a match in UEFA competition and relevant regulations apply. However, this is what Blekaszkowski (100 times in the team playing in the Senegale-ed Cup.) And Lewandowski intends to honor before the November friendly match in Gdañsk with the Czech Republic – explained Jakub Kwiatkowski, press spokesman on PZPN.
Robert Lewandowski was injured
The captain of our team currently has knee problems and is unlikely to fly to the League of Nations Tuesday match against Portugal in Guimaraes. Lewandowski hasn't been on the national team recently – he missed the opponent's goal for 642 minutes. At that time, he gave 14 shots, which were only five customs. A year ago the current Bayern sniper also fell out of the game on the national team. He did not appear in matches with Uruguay and Mexico because of the thigh muscles that were too heavy.
