When Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki went to the team’s locker room to congratulate them on their 3-2 victory over Slovenia, the footballers complained to him about the “scandalous” condition of the National Stadium’s turf.
During Tuesday’s match at the National Stadium, the players from both teams had issues moving on the field, as well as maintaining balance. The press spokesman of the Polish Football Association (PZPN), Jakub Kwiatkowski, admitted they had already heard complaints about the stadium’s turf the previous day.
“Maybe it was good that the prime minister visited us in the locker room. Although there were thanks and congratulations, the players told the prime minister that it would be good to consider the issue of the turf,” Kwiatkowski said.
