Many Southampton fans were delighted with the performance of Jan Bednarek as Poland managed to hold Spain to a 1-1 draw at Euro 2020.
Bednarek was selected as part of Poland’s 26-man squad for the European Championships. Their campaign did not start well as they were defeated 2-1 by Slovakia, meaning they needed a result against Spain to maintain their hopes of progressing to the next round.
Fortunately, they picked up a draw against a Spain side who, while not the all-conquering team of 10-12 years ago, can still be a dangerous proposition. The £22.5m-valued Bednarek (Transfermarkt) was a rock at the heart of the Polish defence, winning five of his seven duels while also completing three interceptions and four tackles as his side thwarted the attacks of La Roja (Sofascore).
Was Bednarek Man of the Match against Spain?
These Saints fans were delighted with their defender’s imperious display and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts on the 25-year-old.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about Bednarek
“Bednarek has largely been the best player on the pitch for Poland. would love him to carry these kind of performances into the Prem”
“Bednarek has had a world class game”
“Jan Bednarek was absolute class tonight, showing his form from the first half of the season. Showing what he can do tonight”
“Bednarek was absolutely class”
“Bednarek played very well. Interesting to hear that he’s been using a Polish psychologist. IIRC you found a quote from him to the Polish press saying that mentally he was knackered.”
“A really impressive performance from Jan Bednarek tonight! Our centre-back won 100% of his tackles vs. Spain & 4/5 of his ground duels. Jan also made the most clearances and tackles in the first half. A solid performance to help keep Poland’s dreams alive”
In other news, Southampton want to sign this man in the summer.
