Portugal to Play Poland in February

Poland vs Portugal – International Friendly

February 29, 2012

The Portuguese football federation have announced that the team’s first warm-up friendly for Euro 2012 will be against Poland in February. Typically, teams are chosen for friendlies based on their similarity to the opposition to be faced. For example, before the 2010 World Cup, Portugal played China to get ready for their match against North Korea. The teams that are faced in friendlies are usually easier that the ones in the tournament, so that confidence may be built. The match will be held in Poland.
