Roma youngster Nicola Zalewski carried his incredible league form from this past season into his national team performances with Poland.
Manager Czesław Michniewicz handed the 20 year-old his first start with Poland’s senior squad for his team’s Nations League clash tonight versus the Netherlands.
He slotted Zalewski on the left side of the attack in his 4-2-3-1 formation, joining Piotr Zieliński and Przemysław Frankowski behind striker Krzysztof Piątek.
His faith in the youngster paid off—Zalewski registered an early second-half assist with the match ending 2-2.
In addition, he finished the affair with 2 accurate long passes, 4 duels won, and 1 key pass.
