Poland reached the round of 16 at the World Cup in Qatar. However, he parted ways with coach Chesław Mihnievich and decided to reorganize the national team.
Initially, it is known that Poland considered hiring manager Bento. However, a final agreement was not reached, and in the end Poland chose Santos as coach.
Santos coached the Portuguese national team from 2014 to 2022. He won Euro 2016 and led the 2018-19 UEFA Nations League championship. At the Qatar World Cup, which was the last tournament, they were in the same group as Korea and made it to the round of 16 together, but were eliminated in the quarterfinals by losing to Morocco. Prior to taking over as Portugal coach, he also managed the Greek national team from 2010 to 2014.
