The Polish goalkeeper Bartlomiej Dragowski, called up for the 2022 Qatar World Cup, was injured, apparently seriously, in his right ankle this Sunday with his club, Spezia, against Hellas Verona, in Serie A. The first sensations are the worst: He was removed on a stretcher and would be left out for the World Cup event.

With two caps in his career, the 25-year-old goalkeeper is one of the substitutes for Poland’s regular Wojciech Szczesny (Juventus). Dragowski injured his ankle when making a cross against Verona striker Kevin Lasagna outside the area, just before the break of the match corresponding to the 15th round of Serie A.

In view of his battered ankle, all the players called for medical assistance, before the goalkeeper was removed on a stretcher. Even more than one colleague clutched his head as a sign of concern.

Poland, one of the rivals of the Argentine team in the Qatar World Cup (on November 30, in the third and last day of Group C), confirmed a few days ago the list of players that will take to the competition. Barcelona attacker Robert Lewandowski is naturally the standout, and there are no surprises. “I could say about each decision that was the most difficult. There were those who played a key role in the previous qualifying rounds, the European championships, the world championships. señaló el director técnico, Czesław Michniewicz.

The European team will seek to qualify for the round of 16 of a World Cup for the first time since 1986. In addition to Lewandowski, the other players with a poster for Poland are the goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny (Juventus), the central defender Jan Bednarek (Aston Villa) and the midfielder Piotr Zielinski (Napoli).

One of the notable absences is that of midfielder Mateusz Klich, who was valuable at Leeds during Marcelo Bielsa’s time as coach of the English team and one of the most experienced of the squad that played in the last European qualifiers.

On the list there is a significant participation of Italian football with eleven of the 26 named playing in Serie A, including Dragowski. There are only three representatives of the Polish league and there is also the midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak, who plays in Saudi Arabia, Poland’s second rival in group C, which is completed by Argentina and Mexico.
