Poland U17 vs Germany U17 Match Analysis & Prediction
30/05/2023 5:30 pm
Vying for a spot in the Euro U17 Championship final, Poland U17 face Germany U17 in Tuesday evening’s semi-final at the Pancho Arena in Felcsut.
Either Spain U17 or holders France U17 will await the winners in next month’s showpiece match, with the other semi-final taking place a few hours later in Hungary.
Poland scored no fewer than 10 goals in their opening two Group A matches, putting five past both the Republic of Ireland and host nation Hungary to seal a quarter-final berth with a game to spare.
Marcin Wlodarski subesequently rang the charges for their final group game, which ended in a 3-0 defeat to Wales, before reverting to form for their last-eight showdown against Group B runners-up Serbia, who felt the full force of Poland’s penalty-box potency.
Poland have averaged over three goals per game while conceding over two per game, and their exploits in Hungary have booked them a ticket to the U17 World Cup for the first time since 1999.
Germany were the only team to progress to the quarters with a perfect record to their name, strolling to victories over France, Portugal and Scotland in Group C with 10 goals scored and just the one conceded.
A quarter-final date with Switzerland was the reward for Germany, but their task became all the more strenuous when Maxim Dal was shown a 15th-minute red card for a last-man foul on Winsley Boteli, who proceeded to dust himself down and convert the resulting penalty.
Despite being forced to play the rest of the game with 10 men, Germany levelled just four minutes after the break through Paris Brunner’s third goal of the competition – forcing a penalty-shootout after a 1-1 draw in normal time – where Boteli soon went from hero to zero for Switzerland with his side’s third and final missed attempt.

With no new injury or suspension concerns to worry about, Poland manager Wlodarski could name an almost similar XI from their win over Serbia.
Mike Huras was chosen to partner Mateusz Skoczylas up front, but with Daniel Mikolajewski coming off the bench to score from the penalty spot, the Parma youngster may have done enough to force his way in.

Germany centre-back Dal will be forced to sit out the semi-final through suspension following his red card in the quarters, opening the door for David Odogu to start in the heart of defence.
Fresh from saving two penalties in the quarter-final shootout, Bayern Munich’s Max Schmitt will act as the last line of defence for Germany.
