Poland star Robert Lewandowski open to playing at another World Cup

Poland captain Robert Lewandowski says he is not scared of playing at another World Cup.

scored his first World Cup goal against Saudi Arabia in the group stage. The 33-year-old Lewandowski scored his second World Cup goal for Poland from the penalty spot against France and did not rule out playing in the 2026 World Cup.

"Physically, I'm not scared of it,"

he said.

 "But there are so many things to manage first. It's hard to say now. Athletically, it doesn't scare me, but there are still a lot of uncertainties."

Barcelona star admitted that if Poland wants to become more successful at future World Cups they should change their defensive tactics.

"It's still a long way to go and, obviously, you need to enjoy the game,"

he said.

"If we attack, try to attack, it's a bit different. But if we play defensively, there's no joy."

Lewandowski also said Poland tried everything against France and they are proud of their performance against defending champion.

He added:

"It is a difficult match, to play against France.

"We fought and we tried to do our best. We played very, very well in the first half, with a few chances. Maybe if we scored the first goal, it would have been a different game.

"Unfortunately, we conceded a goal in the last minute of the first half. It's always difficult to come back from that. We reacted well, we pushed to come back. We can be proud because we tried everything."
