Poland after a stalemate against Mexico would want to end that disappointment when they play the Saudi’s. They know that missed penalty from star men Lewandowski was a huge moment from otherwise quality display which way they will play.
The Eagles will have to defend well against a dangerous Saudi side and try to be present in the final third with goals.
Manager Czeslaw Michniewicz might us a 4-1-4-1 system on Saturday.
On the other hand, Saudi Arabia will be overjoyed by success in the first game, an historic win over Argentina, creating excitement waves in the Arab world. They will look to play their brand of football.
The Green Falcons will now look to be defensively rock solid and be threatening up front as they have been.
Boss Herve Renard will use the 4-1-4-1 system against the Poles.
