Robert Lewandowski is out of Poland's first match in the European Championship against the Netherlands on the 16th. The information was released by the national team's medical department after the forward was injured in the 2-1 friendly loss to Turkey.

"Robert Lewandowski suffered a tear in the biceps femoris muscle, which will rule him out of the first match of the tournament. We are doing everything we can to ensure Robert can play in the second match against Austria," stated doctor Jacek Jaroszewski.

This news is a significant blow for Poland, as Lewandowski is a key player and captain of the national team, known for his goal-scoring prowess and leadership on the field. His absence will undoubtedly impact Poland's performance in the opening match against a strong Dutch side.

In addition to Lewandowski, Pawel Dawidowicz and Karol Swiderski also sustained injuries during recent training sessions. However, the prognosis for both players is more optimistic. According to the medical team, they are expected to return to training "within three or four days." This should provide some relief to the coaching staff, as both players are anticipated to be available for the subsequent matches in the tournament.

Poland's coaching team will need to strategize and adjust their plans to cope with these injuries, especially the absence of their star striker, Lewandowski. Fans will be eagerly waiting for updates on his recovery, hoping to see him back in action as soon as possible.
