Piszczek Sidelined. To Miss Four to Six Weeks

WARSAW, Poland. February 25 (PSN) – Lukasz Piszczek has been injured in the UEFA Champions League match against Juventus this week, which will now see him miss Poland’s international fixture with Ireland.

According to German media, the treatment for the injury will last for more than a month.

Piszczek suffered an injury in Tuesday’s 1/8 finals of the UEFA Champions League.

At 29 minutes into the game, Paul Pogba attacked the Polish representative legs with a slide tackle. After the foul the Borussia Dortmund right-back was unable to continue the game.

The UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying match with Ireland will be held on March 29, and as stated in the German newspaper “Bild”, the Polish defender due to injury will be sidelined for four to six weeks.

This means that Poland will be unable to use the services of the Borussia Dortmund player in this encounter.

This is a problem for Poland coach Adam Nawalka, because the player who would be able to replace Piszczek on the right side of defense, Artur Jedrzejczyk is also out with injury.

If so, who will play right-back in the match with Ireland? Odds are looking that Legia’s Lukasz Broz’s will to take over the role on the national team for the time being.
