The Polish Football Federation said on Tuesday it was optimistic about Robert Lewandowski’s fitness after the captain left the field with a knee injury during the first half of the friendly win over Turkey ahead of the 2024 European Championship.

Lewandowski, 35, was substituted after 33 minutes of Monday’s 2-1 win, six days before the Poland’s tournament opener against the Netherlands.

“We remain optimistic,” federation spokesman Emil Kopanski told AFP.

After the game against Turkey, coach Michal Probierz was also optimistic about the Barcelona striker’s chances of participating in the European Championship.

“Robert Lewandowski suffered a small injury,” Probierz told reporters.

“There shouldn’t be a problem,” he added.

Despite the good news surrounding Lewandowski, Probierz still has other injury concerns.

Hellas Verona striker Karol Swiderski suffered an ankle injury while celebrating the opening goal against Turkey.

Website meczyki.pl claimed Swiderski would be out for four days.

Juventus striker Arkadiusz Milik is also doubtful for Euro 2024 after suffering a knee injury in Friday’s warm-up win against Ukraine.

The Italian club said Milik had undergone minor surgery, without specifying the length of his absence.

Poland will also face Austria and France in Group D during the competition.
