The match with be the 37-year-old’s record 65th game as goalie for the Polish team and Boruc will wear a jersey with the number 65 to mark the occasion.
Boruc last played for Poland in 2016 and announced he would leave international football earlier this year but coach Adam Nawałka decided that he deserved a proper send off.
Boruc will play for 44 minutes of the game on Friday, after which he is expected to receive mass applause from fans.
“My adventure with national-level football was a real rollercoaster ride, but I am happy about what I have accomplished and certainly do not have any regrets,” Boruc said, according to Polish Radio.
The match against Uruguay will also honour right-back Łukasz Piszczek and centre-back Kamil Glik, who have both played 50 games for the Polish national team. (vb/pk)
