Poland’s lewandowski injured in euro 2024 warm-up match.

Poland’s star striker Robert Lewandowski sustained an injury during a Euro 2024 warm-up match against Turkey, adding to the team’s concerns ahead of the tournament.

Match Summary

In the match held in Warsaw, Poland secured a 2-1 victory against Turkey. However, their joy was dampened by injuries to key players. Lewandowski, Poland’s talismanic striker, was forced off the field after just 32 minutes due to injury. His strike partner, Karol Swiderski, also had to leave the pitch earlier after hurting his ankle while celebrating Poland’s opening goal in the 12th minute. Despite these setbacks, Nicola Zalewski scored a late winner for Poland in added time.

Injury Woes for Poland

Poland’s Euro 2024 preparations have been marred by injuries. Prior to Lewandowski’s injury, the team had already lost Juventus striker Arkadiusz Milik, who suffered an injury in a previous match against Ukraine. Milik underwent surgery on his left knee’s medial meniscus, with no specified timeline for his recovery provided by Juventus.

Euro 2024 Campaign

Poland is scheduled to begin their Euro 2024 campaign against the Netherlands on June 16. The team, led by captain Lewandowski, faces a challenging path in Group D, with matches against Austria and France following their opener against the Netherlands. The injury to Lewandowski raises concerns for Poland’s performance in the tournament, given his pivotal role and impressive goal-scoring record for the national team.

Turkey’s Path

Meanwhile, Turkey, placed in Group F, will kick off their Euro 2024 journey against Georgia on June 18. They will then face tough opponents in Portugal and the Czech Republic as they aim to advance in the tournament.


Poland’s victory over Turkey in the warm-up match provides a morale boost, but the injuries to key players, especially Lewandowski, cast a shadow over their Euro 2024 prospects. As the tournament approaches, Poland will need to address their injury concerns and regroup to put forth a competitive performance on the European stage.
