Two-time European champions France are preparing to take on already-eliminated Poland at Borussia Dortmund's Westfalenstadion.

Following Friday's result, criticism of Deschamps's squad has intensified, especially from pundits who feel the French coach has yet to fully leverage the immense talent at his disposal.

However, it should be noted that captain and star forward Kylian Mbappe did not participate in the draw against the Netherlands due to a broken nose sustained against Austria. Despite not playing to their full potential, there are still positive aspects of France's performance in the first two games to build upon, particularly the promising displays from Theo Hernandez, Mbappe, and N'Golo Kante.

France will advance to the round of 16 if they avoid defeat against Poland or if Austria does not beat the Netherlands. They will top the group if they win and the Netherlands do not. If both France and the Netherlands win or both draw, the group winner will be determined by goal difference, then goals scored, disciplinary points, and finally, the European Qualifier rankings, where France ranks higher.

Poland, on the other hand, finished fourth in Group D after losing their first two games against the Netherlands and Austria. Although they can still level on points with Austria, they cannot surpass them due to Austria's superior head-to-head record from their 3-1 victory on Friday, which supersedes overall goal difference.

Probierz, who took charge of the national team in September 2023, has overseen a largely positive period with six wins out of ten games and only his first loss at Euro 2024. Unfortunately, Poland's exit at this stage continues a trend of underwhelming performances in major tournaments. Since 1986, they have only reached the quarter-finals of either the Euros or the World Cup once, at the 2016 European Championship in France.
