POL vs RUS Dream11: The surprise appointment of Paulo Sousa prior to the World Cup qualifiers in March is potentially matched by the surprise omission of Krzysztof Piatek from the final Euro squad. This match won’t be as experimental as most warm-up friendlies because Poland’s final 26 is in whilst Russia’s 30-man squad seems to be easy to chop down to 26. The style of Sousa is likely to evolve Poland to a more passing system that tries to create chances and plays to the strengths of their star man Robert Lewandowski whilst the 2018-present evolution of Stanislav Cherchesov’s Russia has made their opponents also easy on the eye. Their 2-1 win over Slovenia in Sochi in March was an example of that fairly entertaining style; it isn’t necessarily free-flowing but there is an ability to consistently create chances.
