WARSAW: Monaco defender Kamil Glik will miss Poland's two opening World Cup matches as he recovers from shoulder injury, the country's team doctor reported on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old set piece specialist will not be available for the games against Senegal on June 19, and Colombia five days later.

But he will be in contention to face Japan in Poland's final Group H match in Volgograd on June 28.

"After a series of tests I've decided that Kamil Glik will go to the World Cup in Russia," said  the squad's doctor Jacek Jaroszewski.

"He'll be available to play only from the third game, that's four weeks after his injury."

Poland have their final World Cup warm-up against Lithuania in Warsaw later Tuesday before flying to their World Cup base in Sochi on Wednesday.

Last week the Polish football federation had suggested there was "no chance" of Glik recovering in time to take part in the tournament.
