Who has Poland boss Czeslaw Michniewicz picked for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar?

Poland will be desperate to make it through the group stages at the 2022 World Cup after managing just one victory in the 2018 edition of the tournament.

They were paired with Argentina, Mexico and Saudi Arabia in Group C and much will depend on the outcome of their opener versus the Mexicans.

Czeslaw Michniewicz will be hopeful Poland can make it to the round of 16 for the first time since 1986 as he has plenty of high-quality options at his disposal.

Robert Lewandowski has instantly adapted to life at Barcelona following his move from Bayern Munich, while Juventus duo Arkadiusz Milik and Wojciech Szczesny have a proven track record of performing at the highest level as well.
