Today at 19:00 in the Millennium Hall in Kołobrzeg, the first match in the city’s history with the participation of senior futsal teams from Poland and Ukraine begins.
It will be a friendly before important matches in the 2024 World Cup qualifiers, which await both teams next week. The white-red are getting ready at the training camp in Koszalin for the 6th meeting with Azerbaijan, which will decide the first place in the group (7 this month, at 20:00 in the sports and entertainment hall in Koszalin, tickets at abilet. pl). Coach Błażej Korczyński’s charges will need to win this match by a 2-goal margin to advance from first place to the next qualifying round.
For the visitors from Ukraine, the match in Kołobrzeg is a general test before Wednesday’s (8th of this month) meeting with the Netherlands in Almere, the last match in the main round of the World Cup qualifiers. After three games in Group 11, the Ukrainians have a complete set of 9 points (the Netherlands only 3). If the Netherlands win today’s game against Kosovo in Pristina, they will face Ukraine on Wednesday for victory in the group. Otherwise, Ukraine will be sure of first place, regardless of the result of the last match.
