Przemek Placheta has been called into the senior Poland squad for the first time for their friendly against Ukraine on Wednesday.
The Norwich City winger has been drafted into the squad by coach Jerzy Brzeczek as a replacement for Eibar midfielder Damian Kadzior, who has been advised to remain at his club in order to fight for his place in the side.
Poland also have Michal Karbownik of Legia Warsaw, who is suffering from coronavirus, and Bartlomiej Dragowski of Fiorentina absent for the upcoming camp, meaning Placheta has been given the opportunity to impress in this week’s friendly.
After that game, the 22-year-old will join up with the U21s as originally planned to help with their Euro U21 qualifying match against Latvia later this month.
Placheta has started in the Canaries last three matches and had a great opportunity to open the scoring in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Swansea City.

His only City goal arrived against Preston North End in the Canaries first home game of the season, but his pace has caused defences problems in the Championship.
Placheta has played eight times for Poland’s U21s, and this announcement marks his first inclusion in a senior squad. He could line-up alongside Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski for his country.
