Lewandowski to miss Poland’s clash against England
Posted On March 29, 2021
Robert Lewandowski is set to miss Poland’s World Cup qualifier against England on Wednesday with a knee injury.
The Bayern Munich striker limped off after scoring a brace in the 3-0 win over Andorra on Sunday, with manager Paulo Sousa confirming that the 32-year-old had been withdrawn as a precaution.

“He felt a pain in his knee,” he said. “Tomorrow we will check whether he is okay. He needs to rest and sleep well now.”
But a statement from the Polish Football Association on Monday confirmed that Lewandowski will not play at Wembley because it “would carry too much risk of aggravating the injury”.
“This decision is the only right one, bearing in mind the upcoming Euro 2020 tournament,” the statement added.

“Treatment of this type of injury usually lasts from five to 10 days. Therefore, Robert Lewandowski will return to his club, where he will undergo further rehabilitation.”
