Michniewicz sacked as Poland coach

WARSAW (AFP) – Czeslaw Michniewicz (AP, pic below) has been sacked as Poland coach following a last-16 appearance at the World Cup in Qatar, the Polish Football Federation (PZPN) announced yesterday.

Poland finished second in their group, beating Saudi Arabia, drawing with Mexico and losing to eventual champions Argentina.

In the last 16 for the first time in 36 years, they went out after a tame 3-1 defeat at the hands of eventual runners up France.

Heavily panned at home for Poland’s approach during the tournament, Michniewicz was further criticised by the PZPN for a “lack of vision on the functioning and the future of the team”.
