France proved too hot for Poland, as Les Blues ensured that Robert Lewandowski’s late penalty was insufficient in their 3-1 victory. The former Bayern Munich and current FC Barcelona player led his team to the 2018 World Cup and did so again this year, but at 34, he may be looking to retire from international football.
As per TVP Sport via 90min, Lewy was apparently dissatisfied by how Poland prepared for the World Cup by parking the bus and stated that if he continues to play for them, he wants to feel happy.
“There’s still a long journey to go [before the next World Cup], and many factors may affect whether I play,” the Pole explained. “The enjoyment of the game is required.” In the near future, it will be an important factor. Of course, when we try to attack, things are different. There is no joy when we play extra defensively.”
After being shut out in 2018 and crashing out from the group stage, Lewandowski has managed to score his first World Cup goals in Qatar. Maybe he’ll play again in Euro 2024 in Germany or the World Cup in Canada, Mexico, and the United States in 2026, but like his former teammate Thomas Muller, maybe it’s time to call it a day for your country.
