Diary

Wednesday, 3 October 2012 - Waldemar Fornalik has announced his squad for the upcoming friendly and World Cup qualification match in October. In addition, the coach has announced a list of six reserve players.  On Friday, FIFA is expected to announce a decision on the number of matches in a World Cup qualifications in which Ludovic Obraniak is suspended after receiving a red card in the match against Montenegro.

Friday, 5 October 2012 - FIFA have made their announcement regarding Ludovic Obraniak following the red card he received in that match with Montenegro.  His one-match suspension will not be extended and Obraniak will therefore be available to coach Waldemar Fornalik the match against England.

Monday, 8 October 2012 - In training today, the Polish squad were missing eight of the established players, forcing Waldemar Fornalik to upgrade Arkadiusz Milik from a reserve to a main member of the squad. Fornalik has also called into the squad Jakub Kosecki.

Marek Saganowski has been told not to train following the discovery of a heart murmur.  His club mate Jakub Wawrzyniak was also withdrawn from the squad.

Captain Jakub Błaszczykowski has also withdrew following an ankle injury he picked up in Saturday's match between Dortmund and Hannover 96.

Friday, 12 October 2012 - Paweł Wszołek hurt his hamstring over the weekend againt Śląsk Wrocław. He is doubtful for the South Africa match, but will most likely be available against  England. Some sources report that Robert Lewandowski, Lukasz Piszczek and Ludovic Obraniak may not play against South Africa as all are dealing with small injuries carried over from club action. Eugen Polanski had to leave the camp today to deal with personal/family issues. He has been ruled out of the South Africa game, but may also be available against England. Rafał Murawski has been called up to replace Polanski.  Marcin Wasilewski has been confirmed as the captain. - PFO

Elsewhere, Jakob Kosecki has been ruled out of both matches after he received a back injury in training on Wednesday.

Poland went onto beat South Africa by a single late goal.  Artur Sobiech suffered a concusion after coliding with the South African goalkeeper late on.  Debutant Paweł Wszołek also suffered an injury, but both should be fit to be included in Tuesday's match.

Sunday, 14 October 2012 - Eugen Polańksi is still absent from the squad after he left on Thursday due to a family emergency.  It is not yet known if he will return in time for the match on Tuesday.

Monday, 15 October 2012 - Eugen Polańksi has returned to the Poland squad and is available to play against England.

Tuesday, 16 October 2012 - Despite the National Stadium with a retractable roof, the roof remains open during a downpour, delaying the match by an hour, and then by a day, as the match is postponed until tomorrow.
