frankowski poland

Chicago Fire FC midfielder Przemysław Frankowski was back in the starting XI for the Poland Men's National Team on Tuesday, helping his side to a 2-2 draw against Iceland in a warmup match ahead of EURO 2020.


Poland came from behind twice on the night to secure the result. Piotr Zielinski's 34th minute finish negated Albert Gudmondsson's opener scored 10 minutes prior, before Brynjar Bjarnason returned the lead to Iceland just after halftime. Poland forward Karol Swiderski provided the late drama, netting an 88th minute equalizer just minutes after entering as a substitution.

Frankowski played 64 minutes before exiting for Norwich midfielder Przemyslaw Placheta, earning his 12th international appearance in the process.


Tuesday's match served as Poland's final tune-up before kicking off play in the EURO 2020 tournament next week. Drawn into Group E, Frankowski and co. will take on Slovakia, Spain and Sweden.


The team opens its campaign against Slovakia on June 14 at 11:00 a.m. CT at Saint Petersburg Stadium in St. Petersburg, Russia, with matches against Spain on June 19 Sweden on June 23 to follow.
