Poland kick off the World Cup placed in Group H at this year’s World Cup tournament - a group that’s being described as one of the most open groups in the tournament. They’re not alone as there are several groups that fall within this category.
You can get odds on Poland winning the World Cup at around the 40/1 mark. Not great considering this is their first World Cup since 2006, where they failed to qualify for the last 16. Better odds are available though so don’t despair. Just have a search and you’ll find some bookies offering closer to the 100/1 mark. Despite not featuring in the last two editions of the tournament.
Poland aren’t strangers to this competition. This will be the eighth time they’ve qualified for the World Cup. It’s this experience which could be influencing the low odds currently being offered by some bookmakers. Depending upon how they finish in their group, they could face a couple of tricky knock-out matches.
A bet on Poland to come away from Moscow victorious maybe somewhat optimistic. Though, if you consider the path and opponents they may face you can’t write them off entirely. Strange things can happen in footballing tournaments.

Poland’s Group Qualification Tips
We’d tip Poland to qualify from this group. Their footballing experience and depth should be enough to get them over the line. We can’t see them coming unstuck against the likes of Japan or Senegal and believe victories against these two teams will take them through.
Where they go after qualification will depend on current form. If they manage a second-place finish they’ll be up against the winners of Group G. That means their first game in the knock out stages could be against Belgium or possibly England.
At the Euros back in 2016, Poland were picking up good form reaching the quarter-finals, before losing out on penalties to Portugal, who went on to win the tournament.
Poland’s Football team
It’s up front where we’re expecting to see Poland do some great work, especially with a fired-up Lewandowski at the helm. In their win over Armenia, Lewandowski bagged another hat-trick which has now fired him in to Poland’s hall of fame as the country’s leading goal scorer. He bagged 15 goals during the qualifiers, setting another record for a single European campaign.
It’s not all about Lewandowski at Poland either, with them entertaining a squad of seasoned and experienced players who pit their wits week in and out in some of Europe’s toughest leagues. The likes of Grosicki, Wolski and Blaszczykowski provide firepower and a strong footballing understanding.
With Asam Nawlaka steering the Polish dark horse, some are expecting good things from Poland. They’re not ranked 6th in the world of football for no reason at all. Performances throughout the qualifying matches were strong as they performed at a fast and assertive pace.
Poland’s Journey to the World Cup
Poland qualified for the World Cup by topping their group. They lost only two of their ten matches, winning all eight of the others. They ended the qualifiers at the top of their group, 5 points clear of second placed Denmark.
It’s this form that’d set any team up for a positive and confident outlook going in to any tournament. Keep an eye on their early form, Poland have a history of success in past tournaments and with the current set-up we know they’ll be setting the bar high.
