That’s why Touchstone gave up on Cash. “The pain was so bad”
On Sunday, just after 11 p.m., the Polish Football Association announced that coach Michał Probierz had made three changes to the list of the Polish national team called up for the November training camp. Not only was he forced to give up Adrian Benedyczak and Patryk Dziczek, but he also had to find a replacement for Matty Cash. Journalist Tomasz Włodarczyk explained exactly why we will not see these players at the next training camp.
Michał Probierz had already announced that he would announce the list of players called up for the November training camp after the end of Thursday’s (09/11) LE and LKE matches. And that’s how it happened. He made several changes compared to the last training camp, but the biggest sensation was definitely the resignation of Arkadiusz Milik. Among those appointed were, among others: Jan Bednarek (Southampton FC) and Adrian Benedyczak (Parma) returning to the team, or Patryk Dziczek (Piast Gliwice), who doesn’t remember his debut in the team very well. As it turned out, two of them would not be able to appear at the training camp.
We know why Touchstone gave up on Matty Cash. “He will have a few days of rest”
On Sunday (12/11), just after 11 p.m., it was unexpectedly announced that Probierz was forced to resign from both Dziczek, Benedyczak, and Matty Cash. An important update appeared on the “Łączy nas ball” website, which shows that all three will not appear at the training camp due to injuries.
Shortly after the PZPN announcement, journalist Tomasz Włodarczyk reported what exactly was wrong with the players. According to his information, the coach could not call up Cash because the player has a serious shoulder problem. “After today’s Premier League match (against Fulham – ed.), the pain was so great that he will have to rest for a few days,” he wrote.
Moreover, he revealed that Adrian Benedyczak will leave the training camp due to an injury to the rectus femoris muscle, while Dziczek has a groin problem.
This is not good news for Touchstone, especially since all three have been in quite good form recently. The Aston Villa defender played 90 minutes on Sunday (November 12) against Fulham (3:1), while Dziczek played the entire match against ŁKS Łódź (3:3) on Saturday (November 11). However, the best performance was from Benedyczak, who not only started Sunday’s match against Lecco (2:3) in the starting lineup, but also got on the list of scorers, scoring his eighth goal in total this season.
In their place, the training camp will feature Tymoteusz Puchacz (FC Kaiserslautern), who is recovering from injury, Mateusz Łęgowski (Salernitana), who was moved from the U21 team, and Karol Struski (Aris Limassol), who is making his debut in the team and is doing very well in Cyprus.
