Zurawski injury blow for Poland
Captain Maciej Zurawski is out for the
remaining matches of the group stage as Poland was dealt another blow on top of
Sunday's 2-0 defeat against Germany.
Team doctors said on Monday that Zurawski sustained a thigh muscle injury in the first half of the game in Klagenfurt. He was replaced at halftime.
Zurawski will miss the next games against Austria and Croatia which makes the Polish task even more difficult to advance to the knockout stages.
Under UEFA rules teams are not allowed to replace injured players in the Euro squad after they have played the first match, dpa reported.
