    I'm curious to see how Janas plays the strikers, that is, whether he'll start the hot Rasiak up front with Zurawski maybe just behind hiim? Starting all three strikers doesn't seem realistic. BTW does anyone know if the French players have been called up yet?

    This game is gonna be interesting. I am glad to see that Poland is bringing their best players to play this one. France is reeling a bit right now. They have not found the form of late. Poland could be primed for an upset. Any TV coverage in America of this game?

    Interesting how a long time French mainstay, Robert Pires, is not in the squad. I know he is in the middle of a rift with the French coach. I am wondering how the French team will respond. Will they back Pires or the coach. I think Poland has a chance to win this game.

    FT 0:0

    Two totally diffrent halves. In the first the french totally decimated us. If it wasn't for Dudek we would have lost it at least 3:0 easily. The second half was better, particularly because Hajto who played very badly today, was subbed at half time. We had a couple of chances on the offensive end, especialy Krzynowek's during first half but unfortunately nothing came of it. Frankowski didn't look as thretning today, as he did in previous maches. His opinion as a striker who only scores against weaker opponents seems to correct unfortunately. Overall a great result for us, and hopefully a sign of better things to come. On a side note I can't belive that Dudek is sitting on a bench in Liverpool, his performance today and in two previous NT matches was insane. I hope he can change club in January.
