After five years of Coaching Poland National Football team, Adam Nawalka’s contract of coaching the National team has been abruptly cut short owing to their embarrassing and early exit from the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia at the Group stage on Tuesday.

The 60-year-old Adam Nawalka who was downtrodden about their demeaning exit from the world Cup said:

“I feel responsible for the fact that at the World Cup we didn’t fulfil our plans nor the expectations of supporters.”

Poland was fixed in Group H in Russia and have lost to Senegal and Columbia. Having Senegal beat them 2-1 and Columbia 3-0, they managed to narrowly scale through Japan in a 1-0 victory which eventually showed them their way out of Russia.
