This flying winger can play in a striking role if Poland coach Franciszek Smuda needs an alternative attacking option at Euro 2012 and he heads into the tournament in decent form.
After catching the eye with Polish side Jagiellonia Bialystok, where he helped the club to a shock win the Polish Cup final, Grosicki accepted an offer to join Turkish side Sivasspor in January 2011 for around €1 million, with his pace and trickery meaning he could be a wild card for the host nation in this tournament.
“We are not favourites to win Euro 2012, but the expectation in our squad is to do much better than most of the critics expect,” says Grosicki. “Some of the performances we have produced in the warm-up games show what is possible if we work as a team and our better players can produce as we know they can. There is a lot of negativity around our team, but we have to ignore this.”
