Poland Sack Coach Adam Nawalka After World Cup Debacle

Poland have sacked their head coach Adam Nawalka after a disastrous campaign at the ongoing FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.

The European nation was seeded in Group H ahead of Colombia, Senegal and Japan but managed to finish bottom of the group in addition to being the first UEFA team to be eliminated from the tournament.

The Polish Football Association (FA) announced the 60-year-old’s exit via a statement on Tuesday after deciding against a contract extension for him.

The statement read: “We have decided that Adam Nawalka will remain Poland’s team coach until July 30 and.

“After that day we will be looking for a new coach. We will try to build a national team in a new way.” it added.

Adam Nawalka became the Poland national team manager in 2013 and went on to lead the team to the quarterfinals at the 2016 European Championships in France having masterminded qualification for the tournament.

He also helped secure qualification for Russia 2018 only for the team to capitulate in a relatively easy group thereby ending any hopes of him extending his stay beyond the end of his current contract.
