Lewandowski injured as poland secure 2-1 victory over turkey in euro 2024 warm-Up.

Poland’s star striker Robert Lewandowski was forced off the field due to injury after just 32 minutes during their final Euro 2024 warm-up match, which saw Poland win 2-1 against Turkey in Warsaw on Monday.

The match saw an early setback for Poland when Karol Swiderski, Lewandowski’s strike partner from Hellas Verona, injured his right ankle while celebrating his 12th-minute goal that gave Poland the lead. Swiderski had to leave the field shortly thereafter.

Turkey equalized in the 77th minute with a goal from Baris Yilmaz, but Poland secured the win with a last-minute goal by Nicola Zalewski during added time.

Poland’s preparations for Euro 2024 have been plagued by injuries. Juventus striker Arkadiusz Milik was sidelined after suffering an injury against Ukraine on Friday. Juventus confirmed that Milik underwent selective arthroscopic meniscectomy surgery on the medial meniscus of his left knee and will begin rehabilitation with no specified timeline for recovery.

Lewandowski, who has an impressive record of 82 goals in 149 international appearances and is poised to make his fourth European Championship appearance, is a crucial player for Poland. His injury adds to the team’s concerns as they prepare for their Euro campaign, which starts against the Netherlands on June 16. Poland is in Group D, where they will also face Austria and France.

Turkey, placed in Group F, will begin their Euro 2024 journey against Georgia on June 18, followed by matches against Portugal and the Czech Republic
