Before March, problems in the defense of the Polish national team escalated. All because of the injury of Jan Bednarek, who was supposed to be out of action in the first half of the match against Tottenham. British journalist reported that there was a fracture
On Friday, March 17, Fernando Santos submitted a list of names he wants to nominate for the March training camp. The Portuguese had big problems, mainly with their defensive formation, which was destroyed by injuries or lack of matches in their clubs. Although the new coach decided to appoint: Jan Bednarek, Jakub Kivior, Bartosz Bereszynski, Matty Cash, Pavel Davidovich, Robert Gumny, Michal Krabovnik and Kamil Piotkowski.
Dangerous situation involving Jan Bednarek
However, as it turned out, the problems in defense do not end there. On Saturday, Southampton with Jan Bednarek in the squad met with Tottenham. Unfortunately, in the first half of this match, a dangerous situation arose with the participation of the Polish defender.
In the last minutes of the first half, a brawl broke out in a standard position. Suddenly, Jan Bednarek fell down as if he had been electrocuted in the chest, and the medics had to intervene. It was evident that the Polish representative could not catch his breath and that the injury was very painful.
Media: Jan Bednarek suffered a fracture
At the 34th minute, it turned out that a replacement was needed, and the representative of Poland, under the supervision of doctors, went down to the locker room. On Twitter, Southampton team reporter Mark Wyatt tweeted that the centre-back had been hospitalized.
“Jan Bednarek was hospitalized after breaking a rib in the first half of today’s match,” the journalist wrote on Twitter.
It is not yet known how serious this injury is and whether it will exclude Jan Bednarek from Poland’s matches.

The match “Southampton” – “Tottenham” ended with the score 3:3.
