Road to FIFA U-20 World Cup 2007[edit]

Team Overview[edit]

Poland enjoyed a highly successful UEFA U-19 European Championship. The Central Europeans excelled in their role as tournament hosts, and the Polish U-19s also sealed a much sought-after berth at the FIFA U-20 World Cup Canada 2007, where the team coached by Michal Globisz could easily prove one of the surprise packages.

Qualifying[edit]

The U-19-European Championships on home soil started badly for the home team with a demoralising 1-0 Group A reverse against Austria. However, the players roused themselves for their crucial second fixture and registered a convincing 4-1 victory over Belgium. A semi-final berth was at stake in the final group fixture against the Czech Republic, but although home dreams of a place in the last four evaporated in a 2-0 defeat to the Czechs, the Poles had done enough to secure a third-place finish in the Group and with it a ticket to the FIFA U-20 World Cup Canada 2007.
