Mon 29 March 2021 | 10:19

Polish FA has confirmed the striker has suffered a knee ligament injury.

The Bayern Munich striker scored a brace in Poland’s 3-0 win against Andorra on Sunday. However, he was replaced with Karol Swiderski just before the hour mark as he felt pain in his right knee. The Polish FA has confirmed that

Lewandowski

has suffered damage to the collateral ligament of his right knee and he will miss his side’s clash against England on Wednesday.

"Robert Lewandowski will not play in Wednesday's 2022 World Cup qualifying match against England in London due to an injury,"

an official statement posted to the

Polish FA's website

read.

"Clinical tests have shown damage to the collateral ligament of the right knee.

"The short time remaining until the next match excludes the participation of the national team captain in this match. This would carry too much risk of aggravating the injury.

"This decision is the only right one, bearing in mind the upcoming Euro 2020 tournament.

"Treatment of this type of injury usually lasts from five to 10 days. Therefore, Robert Lewandowski will return to Bayern Munich, where he will undergo further rehabilitation."

The extent of the Polish star’s injury may also keep him out of his club's vital clashes against

RB Leipzig

and

PSG

over the next eight days.
