Poland vs. Saudi Arabia lineups
Derby County midfielder Krystian Bielik injured himself after coming on as a halftime substitute in Poland’s draw with Mexico.
Bielik is expected to be ready to feature against Saudi Arabia, while defender Bartosz Bereszynski, who had been considered a major doubt but started the opener, appears to have put his injury concerns behind him.
Poland projected lineup (4-1-4-1, right to left): 1. Szczesny (GK) — 2. Cash, 15. Glik, 14. Kiwior, 18. Berezynski — 10. Krychowiak — 13. Kaminski, 20. Zielinski, 19. Szymanski, 21. Zalewski — 9. Lewandowski
Left-back Yasser Al-Shahrani was stretched off in the final minutes of Saudi Arabia’s incredible win against Argentina after colliding with goalkeeper Mohammed Alowais.
Scans have reportedly revealed a fractured jaw and facial bones, as well as internal bleeding. Alowais has since undergone emergency surgery on the injury and the defender is likely to be ruled out for the rest of the tournament.
Saudi Arabia projected lineup (4-3-3, right to left): 21. Alowais (GK) — 12. Abdulhamid, 17. Tambakti, 5.Albulayhi, 3. Madu — 7. Alfaraj ,8. Almalki, 23. Kanno — 9. Albrikan, 11. Alshehri, 10. Aldawsari
