Poland v Saudi Arabia rosters: Predicted XIs, confirmed team news & most recent injuries for 2022 World Cup game

The Barcelona striker saw his set piece as Poland drew against Mexico in their World Cup opener, and he’ll know his country need to get a result against Arabia Saudi Arabia to give themselves a realistic chance of reaching the round of 16.

Krystian Bielik came on at half-time in that game and is in doubt with a minor injury, as has Bartosz Bereszynski who suffered a muscle injury.

It wouldn’t be surprising if Poland remain unchanged, although Arkadiusz Milik is an option if Czeslaw Michniewicz wants more attacking ambition for his side.

Saudi Arabia come into this match at the top having toppled Argentina, although they will have to make changes to the team that pulled off that upset.

Yasir Al-Shahrani has suffered a broken jaw and required surgery after a horrific collision with his goalkeeper meaning he is unlikely to play a role in the World Cup again.

Salman Al-Faraj came off just before half-time against Argentina and is a doubt, so his country could also be forced to mix up the squad in midfield.

Match winner Salem Al-Dawsari will be a hero forever after his goal and will have the chance to further enhance his reputation this weekend.

Predicted Poland XI: Szczesny, Cash, Glik, Kiwior, Bereszynski, Krychowiak, Kaminski, Zielinski, Szymanski, Zalewski, Lewandowski.

Predicted Saudi Arabia XI: Al-Owais, Abdulhamid, Tambakti, Al-Bulayhi, Al-Burayk, Al-Malki, Al-Brikan, Al-Abid, Kanno, Al-Dawsari, Al-Shehri
