PARIS, France. June 14 (PSN) –There is a high chance that Wojciech Szczesny will not feature in Poland’s next UEFA EURO 2016 group stage game.
The Roma goalkeeper is facing injury and is unlikely to play against Germany on Thursday.
“There is no secret, the injury is serious,” said Poland assistant coach Bogdan Zajac when speaking about the situation of Wojciech Szczesny.
“Every hour he is getting better. The coming days will show us what are Wojciech’s chances.”
Zajac would not specify when a decision would be made on who plays in goal against Germany.
“We need to have players in one hundred percent ready condition in order to play. If we are not sure, it’s a chance to for another goalkeeper to play.”
Szczesny during Sunday’s match against Northern Ireland suffered a contusion injury to the quadriceps, which resulted in hematoma.
The Poland goalkeeper has already passed his removal surgery on Tuesday, but should still undergo further testing.
For now, he is not training with the rest of the team.
Poland play Germany on Thursday in Paris. In addition to Szczesny, the bialo-czerwoni also have goalkeepers Lukasz Fabianski and Artur Boruc on the tournament roster.
