Robert Lewandowski of Poland said that they were put in a tough group at the World Cup in Qatar with Argentina, Mexico, and Saudi Arabia, but he thinks they can still do well.
Four years ago in Russia, Poland didn’t make it out of their group, and Lewandowski wants to make sure that doesn’t happen again.
“I’m very aware of the huge amount of pressure that comes with the hopes of our fans and the whole country. I have to be motivated to show them what I can do on the football field, and I want to be “Lewandowski told the website for FIFA.
“Lewandowski don’t want to complain about how hard that is, even though it’s not always easy. I always have to find a way out and do my best.”
The 34-year-old said that Argentina was one of the favorites to win the championship and that Mexico was always a threat at big tournaments.
“With a legend like Leo Messi leading them, it’s clear that will be our toughest match. It will be fun to play against a team with so many skilled players “Lewandowski added.
“Mexico never gives up and fights until the end of the game. We know that they have a mix of young and old people on their team.”
Lewandowski, who scored nine goals in qualifying, will be Poland’s main offensive threat, but the former Bayern Munich striker said there was more to his game than goals.
“Many people look at my stats and think that if I scored, I played well and if I didn’t, I played badly, but I know that’s not always the case. I’m not worried about it, “he added.
Poland’s first game is on November 22 against Mexico. Four days later, on November 26, they play Saudi Arabia, and on November 30, they play Argentina.
