Frankowski, Poland begin UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying with 1-0 win over Austria

Chicago Fire midfielder Przemysław Frankowski and the Polish Men's National Team began their qualification campaign for UEFA Euro 2020 with a 1-0 win over Austria on Thursday.

Frankowski -- in his fifth appearance for the National Team since debuting in March of 2018 -- entered the match as a halftime substitution for Arkadiusz Milik and slotted into the right wing of the Polish attack. 

The 23-year-old was active in his 45-minute appearance, creating a particularly bright moment in the 61st minute on a cross to AC Milan's Krzysztof Piątek that set up a dangerous -- but ultimately thwarted -- look at net for Hull City's Kamil Grosicki.

Poland got the match-winning goal via a Piątek header in the 68th minute, and sit level on points with Macedonia in qualifying Group G, who were 3-1 winners over Latvia on Thursday.

Frankowski and Poland are back in action on Sunday, March 24, when they return to the National Stadium in Warsaw to face Latvia at 2:45 p.m. CT.
