Key Polish strikers Robert Lewandowski and Karol Swiderski sustained injuries during a 2-1 victory over Turkey, casting doubt on their participation in the upcoming European Championship. Lewandowski set up Swiderski for the opening goal, but the celebration was short-lived as Swiderski injured his ankle and had to be substituted.

Captain Lewandowski, Poland's all-time leading goal-scorer, was forced off in the 32nd minute due to a right leg injury. This double blow compounds Poland's woes after Arkadiusz Milik suffered a knee injury in a previous friendly. Milik has since undergone successful knee surgery and is temporarily sidelined.

Both Lewandowski and Swiderski face a race against time to recover before Poland's Euro opener against the Netherlands. Meanwhile, Turkey's late equalizer and Poland's dramatic 90th-minute winner by Nicola Zalewski have set the stage for an exciting tournament.
