INTERNATIONAL: PURZYCKI CALLED UP TO FACE SLOVENIA

1 October 2015

Midfielder Adrian Purzycki set for Slovenia test.

  • Adrian Purzycki called up to Poland Under 19s to face Slovenia.
  • Friendly double-header to take place in October.
  • Midfielder preparing for UEFA U19 Euro qualifiers in November.

Development Squad midfielder Adrian Purzycki has once again been called up to represent his country, and could be set for his third and fourth Poland Under 19 caps when his side host Slovenia in October for a friendly double-header.

Purzycki and Poland will travel to LKS 1926's Lomza Stadium on Saturday 10 October, before a trip to Olimpia Zambrow Stadium on Monday 12 October, as they prepare for the UEFA Under 19 European Championship qualifiers in Cyprus in November, where they'll take on Bulgaria, Luxembourg and hosts Cyprus.

The 18-year-old won eight caps for the Under 18s, captaining the side on a number of occasions, and has since won two caps for the Under 19s in last month's friendlies with Wales and Belgium.

Speaking about his recent call up, Purzycki said:

"It's a great honour to be called up again, it's always a fantastic feeling to know I'm playing well enough to deserve it.

"The draw and team performance against Wales last month didn't have much promise to it, but despite the defeat to Belgium, we took many positives from the game.

"We're showing good signs before the qualifiers in November, and hopefully we can record a couple of wins against Slovenia before we head out to Cyprus."
