A statement from the Polish Football Federation said: "During a training session, Kamil Glik suffered a ligament injury to his acromioclavicular joint."

While the federation's spokesperson Jakub Kwiatkowski said of Glik: "He remains on our list. We await the results of the test."

Should the 30-year-old fail to recover from his damaged shoulder, Stuttgart defender Marcin Kaminski will replace the ex-Torino ace in the squad.

Glik is likely to miss the upcoming friendlies against Chile and Lithuania, as Nawalka looks to avoid risk on his influential centre-half.

The 57-cap international was a standout player for Monaco as they finished second in Ligue 1 - featuring 48 times in all competitions - netting four times.
