Before Switzerland faced the Turks, there was a possibility that the Poles would only need a draw with Sweden to be promoted, with only two points in their account after the group stage. This will happen if three conditions are met – the Helvetians had to draw with Senol Gunes, and Slovakia unexpectedly defeated Spain with one or two goals, but with such a small size that Luis Enrique’s team had fewer goals at the end of the group matches. Poland, the Czech Republic and Croatia to share the points with a draw less than what would have been scored in the Polish-Swedish skirmish.
After the impressive victory for Switzerland, it became clear that two points for promotion would not be enough. Now, to be in the next stage of the tournament, it is impossible to calculate and it is necessary to win the representation of the Three Crowns. It is worth noting that the Swedes will also be interested in a good result, because in the event of a loss of points, Jan Andersson’s team may lose the current first place in Group E.
The start of the competition in St. Petersburg is scheduled for 18:00. At the same time at the La Cartuja stadium in Seville, the second match of the “Polish” group will begin, that is, the aforementioned match between Spain and Slovakia.
