– Robert is already after the ultrasound examination. It showed no mechanical damage to the ankle joint. The athlete only has a hematoma that is painful. Now it will be under the care of physiotherapists – said the press spokesman of the Polish Football Association and the team manager of the national team Jakub Kwiatkowski on Monday evening.
As he added, the risk that Lewandowski would not be able to play in Wrocław on Wednesday is rather small.

For now, however, it is not known whether the footballer will play from the beginning.
Lewandowski left the field with a grimace of pain on his face at the end of the match against Italy, but the injury probably occurred around 35 minutes. Then the captain of the white and reds was kicked by an opponent.
On Monday noon, some of the team members had light training in Sopot. Fourteen players took part in it – a reserve player from the match against Italy and Rafał Pietrzak and Jan Bednarek, who paused on Sunday for cards.
In the evening, however, tests of all players and staff members for coronavirus began. – Earlier we had a dinner during which the second coach of the team, Tomasz Mazurkiewicz, got a cake. Today he is celebrating his birthday (he turns 52 – PAP) – added Kwiatkowski.
The Polish representatives will stay in the Tri-City until Tuesday. On that day at 11.30 they will depart Gdańsk to Wrocław by charter for the Wednesday match against Bosnia and Herzegovina.
After three rounds, the group of 1 division A of the League of Nations is led by Italians with five points. The White and Reds have four, as does the Netherlands. The Bosnians are last (2 points).
A possible victory on Wednesday by Jerzy Brzęczek’s players may give them a lead in the table, but on the condition of a draw between Italy and the Dutch that day.
