Poland’s FA also said it was suspending cooperation with a bodyguard assigned to captain Robert Lewandowski, and barring the man from the World Cup in Qatar, over prosecutors’ allegations that Dominik Gruszewski was a member of a criminal gang.
Poland, featuring Lewandowski as the team’s talisman in attack, opens its World Cup Group C campaign against Mexico on Nov. 22. It then plays Saudi Arabia four days later before taking on Argentina on Nov. 30.
Chile failed to qualify for the World Cup.
