Poland Name Jerzy Brzeczek As New Manager

Poland have named former national team captain Jerzy Brzeczek as their new manager after their World Cup group stage exit.

The 47-year-old Wisla Plock boss replaces Adam Nawalka, whose contract was not renewed.

Poland finished bottom of Group H after losing their opening two games to Senegal and Colombia before beating Japan in the final game.

Brzeczek, who won 42 caps, is the uncle of Poland winger Jakub Blaszczykowski.
