Poland forward Robert Lewandowski has been in incredible form for both club and country but is in danger of missing some fixtures.

Robert Lewandowski was taken off the pitch during Poland’s World Cup qualifying game against Andorra on Sunday. This happened after the 32-year-old bagged two goals for his country that evening, but was forced to the sidelines on the hour mark.

Initially, the knee injury was perceived to be a dangerous one, however, further tests on Monday will confirm the extent of it. Lewandowski could potentially miss several games and is required to rest for some amount of time. 

Paulo Sousa’s side will face a tough task against England on Wednesday. In addition, Bayern Munich has Bundesliga and Champions League clashes in the next eight days and the Polish striker must wait for his test results.

“He felt a pain in his knee,” Sousa initially said in his post-match press conference. “Tomorrow we will check whether he is okay. He needs to rest and sleep well now.”

Former Bayern president Uli Hoeness added: “The first prognoses are not quite as bad as they initially looked.”
