Beenhakker names veteran Poland squad for friendly with US

WARSAW, Poland: Poland coach Leo Beenhakker named a veteran lineup for next week’s friendly against the United States.
Defender Arkadiusz Radomski returns to the team after sitting out most of 2007 due to injury, and looks set to join fellow veterans Jacek Bak and Michal Zewlakow in the back line.
Injury has forced Beenhakker to drop Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jakub Blaszczykowski, who developed into a key player on the right wing in qualifying for the European Championship. Wojciech Lobodzinski is likely to fill in for Blaszczykowski, joining Jacek Krzynowek, Mariusz Lewandowski and Dariusz Dudka in the midfield.
Poland is using the match as preparation for the Euro 2008 tournament in June in Austria and Switzerland. The Poles are in Group B, along with Germany, Croatia and Austria.
In the attack, Maciej Zurawski looks set to pair up with Racing Santander’s Euzebiusz Smolarek.
Poland and the U.S. last played in March 2006 in blizzard conditions, with the Americans winning 1-0 on Clint Dempsey’s 48th-minute goal in Kaiserslautern, Germany.
