The entire globe has been anticipating this encounter ever since the groups were drawn, Michniewicz stated at a press conference.
Lewandowski and Messi are not competing in this game; it is between Poland and Argentina.
It's not like tennis, when they play one against one while everyone watches to see who serves an ace or a stunning lob. Robert and Messi both depend on their teammates.
Argentina has defeated Poland six times out of a possible eleven times, while Poland triumphed in their most recent friendly matchup in 2011.
This game is not an exhibition, Michniewicz declared. It will be a battle between two teams that both have room for improvement.
Poland will have to defeat one of the world's greats in order to make it happen.
How to stop Lionel Messi is a terrific question, Michniewicz said in jest. "It's a question that, in my opinion, has been on everyone's mind for the past 18 years. And as long as he continues to play, I don't think we'll find out."
The Argentine striker was compared by the Poland coach to a former alpine skiing gold medalist.
