The game was due to kick off at 6:00 pm at the National Stadium in Warsaw.
The Polish national football squad will on Wednesday head to their World Cup training base in the southern Russian resort of Sochi.
Poland manager Adam Nawałka last Monday named his final 23-man lineup for the World Cup.
Meanwhile, Poland defender Kamil Glik, who made the list but sustained a shoulder injury in training last week, was on Tuesday expected to reunite with the squad and be reexamined by the team doctor amid reports of fast recovery.
Nawałka told a news conference on Monday that it was up to the doctor to make the final decision on whether Glik should go with the team to the tournament in Russia.
The World Cup kicks off on Thursday and runs until July 15.
Poland will play Senegal on June 19, before facing Colombia on June 24 and Japan on June 28 in the group stage of the tournament.
Poland drew 2-2 with Chile in their previous pre-World Cup friendly in the western city of Poznań on Friday.
