The line-up includes 10 players from Poland’s premier Ekstraklasa league, in addition to 19 players from foreign leagues whose names Nawałka had already announced earlier. Among them is veteran goalkeeper Artur Boruc, who will be officially bidding farewell to the national team.

Four of the 10 Ekstraklasa players named by Nawałka on Friday have never before had a chance to represent their country.

Poland have already booked their place in next year's World Cup in Russia. The team will be playing its friendlies against Uruguay and Mexico at a time when eight other European sides, among them Italy and Sweden, will still be battling it out in the qualifying playoffs to win a ticket to Russia.
