Poland pick Kiwior in their Euro 2024 squad

Jakub Kiwior has been included in Poland’s final squad for Euro 2024 and will head to his second major international finals this summer.

The defender was a virtual certainty to be included in manager Michal Probierz’s selection as he has featured in all 22 of his country’s matches since debuting back in June 2022, missing just three minutes of action during that time.

That includes five appearances at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar when he helped his country to the round of 16 before they were eliminated against France - something they can put right having been drawn in the same group as them in Germany, alongside the Netherlands and Austria.

Jakub was also an ever-present throughout the qualifying campaign, including all eight matches before the play-offs where Poland navigated their way past Estonia before beating Wales on penalties to secure their spot at a fifth-successive Euros, and a seventh-straight major tournament.

One of the main reasons for that sustained success is the goals of 36-year-old Robert Lewandowski who once again leads the line and his country at these finals. Fellow veteran and former Gunner Wojciech Szczesny remains between the posts, while the majority of the squad possess plenty of international experience. However they were dealt a blow in Friday's friendly win over Ukraine when Juventus striker Arkadiusz Milik picked up a knee injury that will see him miss out on the tournament.

Poland’s opening game will be against the Dutch on Sunday, June 16, before Austria are next up five days later. Then comes the crunch game against William Saliba’s France on Tuesday, June 25 as what looks to be a highly competitive group will likely be settled on the final matchday.

They warm up for the tournament with a final friendly against Turkey, where Jakub could win his 23rd cap, scoring once in that time.
