This will be the fifth and sixth series of games. So far, “Biało-Czerwone” in September tied in Gdańsk with the Belgians 1-1 and defeated Armenia 1-0 away. A month later, they drew goalless in Łódź with Norway and won in Tychy with Albania 2-0. They are second in Group F, two points behind Norway. Kosovo, which takes us to Pristina, is the fifth with four “eyes”.
Selector Nina Patalon has had a problem for some time, because she cannot use the services of the goalkeeper Katarzyna Kiedrzynek and the forward Ewa Pajor. On Thursday, she attacked the debutante Karolina Gec (AZS UJ Kraków, a graduate of Bronowianka Kraków).
Polish women were favorites, but in the fourth minute they had to swallow a bitter pill. Liridona Syla showed off after a corner from a corner kick, for which it was the second hit in these eliminations.
In the 14th minute, “Biało-Czerwony” should equalize. Zofia Buszewska crossed from the right, and Gec “headed” in the penalty area, but the rookie in the team missed the goal. Three minutes later, however, it was 1-1. This time Natalia Padilla-Bidas crossed from the right and Gec sent the ball into the net from close range.
The Polish women took the lead in the 35th minute. Adriana Achcińska crossed the free kick, and Martyna Wiankowska closed the action at the post, hitting the goal from a few meters.
The 2023 World Cup will be held in Australia and New Zealand. The group winners will advance to them directly, and the second placed teams will play in the play-offs.
