0

The
Polish
soccer
federation
said
on
Monday
coach
Czesław
Michniewicz
told
Rybus
that
he
would
be
left
out
of
the
squad
for
Nations
League
games
in
September
and
out
of
Poland’s
plans
for
the
World
Cup
because
of
his
“current
club
situation.”

The
full
back
was
with
Lokomotiv
Moscow
last
season
and
stayed
with
the
team
after
the
Russian
invasion
of
Ukraine.
He
signed
a
new
two-year
contract
with
Spartak
Moscow
on
June
11.
Rybus
has
played
66
times
for
Poland,
most
recently
in
November,
and
was
in
the
squad
for
the
last
World
Cup
in
2018
and
last
year’s
European
Championship.

He
has
spent
almost
all
of
the
last
decade
at
various
Russian
clubs,
except
for
a
brief
spell
in
France
with
Lyon,
and
is
married
to
a
Russian
woman.
There
was
no
word
from
the
federation
on
two
other
national
players
who
have
contracts
with
Russian
clubs.

Midfielder
Grzegorz
Krychowiak
of
FC
Krasnodar
and
Sebastian
Szymanski
are
still
covered
by
existing
contracts
signed
before
the
invasion,
and
Krychowiak
moved
on
loan
to
Greek
club
AEK
Athens
following
the
invasion.
Poland
will
face
Mexico,
Argentina
and
Saudi
Arabia
in
the
World
Cup
group
stage.

After
Russia
launched
its
invasion
of
Ukraine
in
February,
Poland
said
it
would
refuse
to
play
a
scheduled
World
Cup
qualifying
playoff
against
Russia
in
Moscow.
FIFA
awarded
Poland
a
bye
into
the
next
round,
where
it
beat
Sweden
2-0
to
qualify.
