The Polish national team took advantage of an excellent pass from Anguissa and had no problems beating the rivals’ goalkeeper.
Unfortunately, Zielinski did not appear on the playing field after the change of sides. The Pole was substituted at halftime, with Ndombele designated to play in his place. The midfielder played an excellent game, so from the beginning it could have been intuited that it was an injury rather than Luciano Spalletti’s personnel decisions.

The Azzurri will play their next match this Sunday against Cremonese. All indications are that in this duel we will not see Piotr Zielinski on the playing field.
