Poland face Nigeria at Stadium Wrocław in March 2018

In March 2018, Poland’s national team are returning to Wrocław after 16 months of absence in the city. Adam Nawałka’s side are expected to face Nigeria on 23 March 2018 at the Stadium Wrocław.

The fixture marks the beginning of the preparation series in the build-up before the World Cup, which starts in June in Russia.

The national team last visited Wrocław in November 2016, when they drew 1:1 in a friendly against Slovenia. In March 2018, nearly a year and a half later, Adam Nawałka's boys are going to face Nigeria at the Stadium Wrocław. The game marks the first step in the build-up before the World Cup in Russia, which is the most prominent footballing event globally.

Robert Lewandowski and his side are going to compete against Senegal, Columbia and Japan in Group H. The March fixture against Nigeria, who are one the greatest exponents of the African style of play, is designed as a training game prior to facing Teranga’s Lions in Russia. Four days later, on 27th Match at the Śląski Stadium in Chorzów, Poland are going to face South Korea, whose style of play is comparable to that of Japan.

Wrocław was confirmed to host the Poland-Nigeria game by the Polish Football Association on Thursday.
