Piotr Zielinski and Jorginho got on the scoresheet to cancel each other out.
A lot was expected of Poland heading into the 2018 World Cup after their solid performances at Euro 2016, however they were in fact the very first side to be eliminated from the tournament after losing their first two games against Senegal and Colombia. One of the most deadly strikers in the world, Robert Lewandowski did not create any opportunities nor did he get given any by other Polish players. All in all, it was a shocking tournament.
Jerzy Brzęczek, age 47, (18.03.1971)
After a disastrous World Cup for Adam Nawalka, Poland have introduced former captain Jerzy Brzęczek to try and change their fortunes after being the very first side to be eliminated from the 2018 World Cup.
