Who is on the Poland team?
Apart from having tremendous success across Polish teams, coach Michniewicz is also known to have sought the counsel of many people before coming to any decision. So, who did he pick for his 26-man team?
In the goalkeeping sector, the coach has come out on several occasions to state that he wanted to have four goalkeepers, but after careful consideration, he narrowed it down to three.
Nevertheless, Wojciech Szczesny was coach Michniewicz's first choice, Lukasz Skorupski, and Kamil Grabara will be assisting him. Bartłomiej Drągowski was the player whose name was scrapped.
For the right-back and left-back roles, Aston Villa star Matty Cash and his teammate Jan Bednarek have all gotten the nod for the defense positions. Tomasz Kedziora, Kamil Glik, Bartosz Bereszynski and Robert Gumny will be assisting them.

Coach Michniewicz's first choice for midfield was the experienced Al-Shabab's star defensive midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak. Also assisting him in this position are Kamil Grosicki, Szymon Zurkowski, and Piotr Zielinski of Napoli.
The most pressing question is, is Robert Lewandowski playing in this World Cup? Yes, the 34-year-old Barcelona star will lead his national team in this year's World Cup. Not only is he Poland's most-capped player, but he is also the leading goal-scorer of all time.

His appearance in the World Cup comes after he received a three-match ban from his club Barcelona last week for disrespecting a referee in an outing against Osasuna. It's also worth noting that Lewandowski has never scored in the World Cup and is looking to right his wrongs.
In this World Cup, Lewandowski will be assisted by Juventus's forward Arkadiusz Milik, together with Karol Swiderski and Krzysztof Piatek.
