“Lewandowski is one of the best scorers in the world, but I hope he will not score three goals against us,” said Rohr.
The Eagles coach further said team cohesion and not result will be paramount for the Poland friendly.
“It’s not about the result but the unity of the team,” he said He will also hope the game as well as that against Serbia four days will afford him a chance to have a closer look at young goalkeeper Francis Uzoho as well as fresh call-ups Joel Obi from Torino, Egypt-based striker Junior Ajayi and Akwa United front man Okechukwu Gabriel.
