Lewandowski leads Poland’s final WC squad

Warsaw, June 4: Poland coach Adam Nawalka announced on Monday the final 23-man list for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, topped by Bayern Munich star striker Robert Lewandowski. Lewandowski is set to be one of the Poland internationals making their World Cup debut in Russia, as Poland returns to the tournament after a 12-year absence. Although Monaco defender Kamil Glik was initially included in the list, he was later replaced by Marcin Kaminski, having sustained a shoulder injury during Monday’s training. Poland heads to the World Cup with the successes of the 1974 and 1982 World Cups in their memory — years when the Polish national team was among the semifinalists. IANS
