In a surprising announcement that reverberated through the world of Polish football, Grzegorz Krychowiak, has decided to call time on his career in national team. The 100-cap veteran made his decision public via social media, marking the end of an era in Polish football.
Krychowiak’s journey with the Polish national team has been nothing short of remarkable, earning him a special place in the hearts of fans across the country. In a heartfelt post on Facebook, he expressed his gratitude and the immense pride he felt in representing his nation.
“Playing 100 matches with the eagle on my chest for the rest of my life will be the greatest honor for me both as a person and as a sportsman,” he wrote. “Sports-wise, there is no more beautiful moment than singing the anthem before a national team match at the National Stadium. However, the time has come to say ‘thank you.’ Today I am resigning from the Polish National Team.”
In his farewell message, Krychowiak extended his thanks to the fans who stood by the team through thick and thin. He also expressed his appreciation for the unwavering support from his wife, family, coaches, and all the staff members he encountered during his illustrious international career. His message ended with a promise to continue supporting the team from the stands.
His final appearance for the national team was in September’s clash against Albania, a match that ended in disappointment with a 0-2 defeat for the white-and-reds. With his decision to retire from „national” duty, Krychowiak leaves behind a legacy that will be remembered for his unwavering dedication, passion, and exemplary service to Polish football.
