Poland Coach Nawalka: We Were Better Than Nigeria, Just Unlucky

By Adeboye Amosu:

Poland head coach Adam Nawalka says his team didn’t get the reward their performance deserved following Friday’s 1-0 defeat by Nigeria in the friendly fixture at Municipal Stadium, Wroclaw, Completesportsnigeria. com reports.

The Poles created a number of goal scoring opportunities in the game but were let down by their poor marksmanship and some great goalkeeping by Francis Uzoho.

The defeat stretched Nawalka’s team’s winless streak to three games. They also failed to score a goal in the three games.

“We will analyze the performance of all players in a timely manner. In general, we wanted to try and check out all the players,” Nawalka stated during his post-match press conference.

“Every failure always hurts, but I think we played better than them (Nigeria). We didn’t deserve to lose the game and also created better chances to win the game.

“We have now failed to score in our last three games. It certainly hurts, but we won’t allow that to discourage us as we know what to improve on.

“More so because we tested a new system which we intend to use in subsequent games.”

    What makes them better ?…the polish team i saw is just ordinary , mind you they played Super Eagles at their own backyard and with all the home support.The Super Eagles I saw will thrash that polish team three nill on a neutral ground!!

    • don’t get excited and overconfident. If you will play like in this game in wc2018,you will finish fourth in a group 😉 Look up statistics on shots and ball control. Messi and Modricwill finish you off,mark my words. I always ve been keen supporter of your team but not in this style…Geez I remember watching live Babangida,Okocha,Kanu,West….these were the real magicians 😉 As for the game,it was a simple test for a new formation on 3-4-3 with a bunch of newfaces for possible subs,3-4-3 is awkward for us,thats why it looked but clamsy and weird. And yet we still scored a goal(blind dumb referee),hit the post,won on goal chances and received a penalty which to say the least was doubtfull and fake. Its ok though,we will learn the lesson and you will learn yours. See you hopefully at WC 2018 😉

    Creating chances is different from scoring goals. I wonder why they claim to have outplayed us. Yes, we didn’t create so many chances but we took advantage of one of the very few and scored.
