(Bako on the ground with van Basten looking on)

- Poland’s previous win was a European Championship Qualifier in Chorzow, on May 2, 1979, that Poland won 2 to 0.

-On September 18, 1992, Dutch Captain Ruud Gullit withdrew from Holland squad for personal reasons.
At the time he was having playing time difficulties with his club AC Milan due to foreign player restrictions.
In his absence Marco van Basten captained the side.

-As stated in previous entries in this blog, Holland Manager Dick Advocaat was initially only appointed for the qualification phase.
Once that achieved he was supposed to make way for Barcelona Manager Johann Cruyff to manage in the WC Finals in USA in 1994.

-Holland still had not won a match under Advocaat. Their first friendly after the Euros on September 9, 1992 ended in a 3 to2 home loss vs. Italy.
They then lost a World Cup Qualifier on September 23rd, in Oslo to Norway by a score of 2 to 1.
Their first win under Advocaat would be away on December 16th vs. Turkey (3 to 1 win).

-This match turned out to be Marco van Basten’s last match for Holland.
He missed most of the rest of the season through injury and was completely inactive during the 1993/94 and 1994/95 seasons.
In the summer 1995 he retired prematurely due to these injuries.

-This was Peter van Vossen’s second cap and he scored twice. His previous cap was vs. Yugoslavia on March 25th (2-0 Holland win).
He also scored twice in Holland’s next qualifier away vs. Turkey on December 16th (3 to 1 win).

-Following the 1992 European Championships, Dutch goalkeeper Hans van Breukelen and veteran defender Adri van Tiggelen hard retired from the National Team.
Stanley Menzo was now the starting goalkeeper.

-This was Menzo’s last cap for Holland, as his blunders allowed the two polish goals.
Following this match, the starting goalkeeper was Feyenoord’s Ed de Goey.
By the spring of 1993, Menzo also lost his club spot at Ajax due to other blunders. His replacement there was Edwin van der Saar, the future Holland goalkeeper.

-This was PSV Eindhoven midfielder Arthur Numan’s first cap.

-Poland were missing Sporting Lisbon’s Andrzej Juskowiak, as well as Panathinaikos’ Krzysztof Warzycha  and Tomasz Lapiński of Widzew Lodz.

Norway and Holland qualified to the World Cup.

(van Vossen, the two goals hero)

-This was Berry van Aerle’s last cap. Therefore his first cap and last cap were vs. Poland exactly five years apart as both matches were played on an October 14th.

-This was also Henk Fraser’s last cap for Holland.

-Poland Manager Andrzej Strejlau resigned on September 27, 1993 after having failed Qualification.

-This was Marek Kozminski’s second cap and first goal for Poland.
Some sources erroneously credited his goal to Kosecki.

-Kozminski, Waldoch, Adamczuk, Brzęczek and Kowalczyk were members of Poland’s 1992 Olympic squad that finished runners-up in the Barcelona Olympics months earlier.

(Peter van Vossen)

-The attendance of 14,500 was one of Holland’s lowest ever attendances for a World Cup Qualifier.

-The match was being played in Feyenoord’s home stadium. Witschge, Fraser and De Goey were Feyenoord players.
They won the Dutch League title at the end of the season.
Ronald Koeman and van Vossen also played for Feyenoord in their careers.
Poland’s Smolarek was also a one time Feyenoord player.

-This was Smolarek’s last cap for Holland. He was playing for dutch club Utrecht and was selected most likely for that.
His previous cap was in 1988. He also managed Feyenoord youth teams.

(van Aerle taking a throw –in)

-For Poland’s first goal, Kosecki took a shot from outside the box that Menzo could not hold on to, Kozminski picked up the rebound and scored.
For the second goal, Kosecki crossed from the right on to the far post and Kowalczyk just headed across , taking advantage of Menzo’s poor positioning.

-For Holland’s first goal, Wim Jonk sent in a through ball for van Vossen who scored with only the goalkeeper to beat.
Holland’s second goal was similar to Kozminski’s goal for Poland, Bergkamp took a shot from outside the box that Bako sould not hold on to and van Vossen picked up the rebound.
