WARSAW, Poland. November 1 (PSN) – Paulo Sousa has announced the names of the players who he has called up for the FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifiers in November against Andorra and Hungary.
The first match will be played by the Polish national team at the Estadi Nacional in Andorra la Vella against Andorra (November 12). In turn, the Poles will then return home to face visitors Hungary at the PGE Narodowy stadium on November 15.
