That Robert Lewandowski may not play in the qualifying match at Wembley, Maciej Szmigielski was the first to write. This possibility was confirmed at the press conference by the selector of the Polish national team.
“At the moment we are not sure if they will participate in this match or not,” Paulo Sousa said of the Bundesliga players’ participation in the qualifying match against England. However, given the situation in the Austrian team, Robert Lewandowski’s performance at Wembley looks less realistic.
Due to a quarantine after his return from the British Isles, the Austrian national team coach in the match against Scotland will have no Bundesliga players at his disposal. The list of absentees is impressive and also includes a Bayern Munich player.
David Alaba, Marcel Sabitzer, Martin Hinterger, Xavier Schlager, Stefan Linner, Alexander Dragovic, Christoph Baumgartner, Sasa Kalagdzic – these players will miss the qualifying match with Scotland due to safety regulations. More and more it appears that the Whites will also weaken against the England team.
The participation of Robert Lewandowski and the other Bundesliga players in this match is doubtful. Of course, the blame is the coronavirus, the British boom and the hard-line stance of the German health services. At the moment, the restrictions in force in Germany on people returning from Great Britain remain unchanged, which means mandatory quarantine, even in the case of negative test results – wrote Maciej Szmegelsky on March 8.
If speculation is confirmed, Paulo Sousa will be able to transfer to Wembley not only Robert Lewandowski, but also other forwards – Krzysztof Piątek and Arkadiusz Milik. Aside from them, the Portuguese have called up only Carole Schwedersky for the March matches, against Hungary, Andorra and England.
It’s hard to imagine that under the prevailing rules Bayern would allow Robert Lewandowski to go into mandatory quarantine. The more Die Rutten fought for the German championship and another victory in the Champions League, the Polish striker He approaches the legendary record equation by Gerd Muller.
A possible scenario is also that the match with England could be played outside Great Britain. There are also such ideas, although they assume in the Polish Football Association that the meeting will take place at Wembley or another smaller facility in London. The English will not prevent the Polish national team from arriving in their country after certain requirements are met. But the problem will be the team returning to their clubs – added Maciej Schmegelsky.
