Poland coach Franciszek Smuda is
like a "fox in a cage" and cannot wait to launch the team's Euro
2012 campaign, assistant coach Jacek Zielinski said on
The Poles open the tournament on Friday against Greece in
Warsaw, with the hopes of the nation of 38 million bearing down
"Smuda? He's like a wild fox in a cage. He just wants to
waste them all. He can't wait," Zielinski, who played at the
2002 World Cup in Korea, said on the sidelines of packed news
conference in Warsaw.
"It is definitely different compared to Korea. Then we felt
like we were away on business. There were very few fans, very
few journalists. We were left alone to get on with things."
Earlier, Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk, a keen football
fan who still plays regularly, had breakfast with the team. He
predicted a 1-0 victory for the Poles in the Group A opener.
