He sets shooting records and is also hard as steel – Grzegorz Krychowiak, the pillar of the second line of the Polish national team, impressed. In yesterday's Lokomotiv game, Moscow suffered an injury and are already packing to reach the Eagles group. No loosening despite promotion to Euro 2020.
Polish fans might be a little worried Sunday night. Grzegorz Krychowiak's arrival on the Polish team was in question. During the league match against Krasnodar, midfielder Lokomotiv hit his head hard on the field and suffered a concussion. The player has announced, however, that he will join his teammates.
Krychowiak scored a goal for Lokomotiv in a 1-1 draw with Krasnodar. Later, however, he went through a moment of terror – he hit his head hard on the lawn after one of the speedy opponents fell on him. The whole incident seemed extremely threatening. Krychowiak was clearly stunned and did not leave for the second half.
The Polish was immediately taken to hospital and there he was diagnosed with concussion, which was confirmed by Lokomotiv in an evening statement. In his Instagram account, however, Krychowiak assured fans that his health was good.
Today on Twitter, "Krycha" confirmed his arrival to the Polish national team. He did it in a humorous way, suggesting that Wojciech Szczęsny and Robert Lewandowski would not need to post photos without him on the table.
This is a reference to the situation where, in the absence of Krychowiak, "Lewy" and Szczęsna reworked a picture together, drawing the silhouette of their Lokomotiv colleague on an empty chair.
It is noteworthy that Krychowiak's partner at the club – Maciej Rybus – suffered a warm-up on Sunday before the match. The left defender was scheduled to play in the original squad, but in the end did not play with Krasnodar.
