Group A4 Live now
Piotr Koźmiński, match reporter: After suffering a humbling 6-1 loss to Belgium on Matchday 2, Poland will try to exact some revenge in Warsaw so we can expect to see their strongest possible line-up.
Wojciech Szczęsny will start along with Robert Lewandowski, who was rested against the Netherlands. The mood in the Poland camp has improved following the 2-2 draw with the Oranje, but this Belgium team remains quite the opponent.
What the coaches say
Czesław Michniewicz, Poland coach: "We have a detailed plan for the Belgium match. There are doubts over two positions in the starting line-up: everything else is decided. This is the last game of this month; the Belgians know us, we know them. A team comes together when it has to go through matches like the [6-1 defeat against] Belgium. We went through it together. Everyone wants to go to the [World Cup]; everyone has their dreams.”
Roberto Martínez, Belgium coach: "We will field some new players with less experience; it will be a good test for them. We will have a chance to correct previous missteps in this campaign and the match will also help me to reduce the squad to 26 players for the World Cup. The team [that competed at the 2018 World Cup] is four years older, so they have less energy at times, but they have experience. This team has been consistent. This generation deserves a title, but in football the margins between the top nations are very small."
What happens after the UEFA Nations League group stage?
The four group winners in League A will advance to the knockout finals with, in principle, one appointed as hosts. The semi-finals will be played on 14 and 15 June 2023 with the final and third-place play-off to follow on 18 June.
The teams finishing fourth in the groups in League A will be relegated to League B for the 2024/25 edition.
