VIENNA Poland midfielder Lukasz Piszczek is out of their Euro 2008 Group B game with Austria on Thursday due to an ankle injury.
"Piszczek twisted his ankle in Wednesday evening's training session and will take no part in the match against co-hosts Austria," team spokeswoman Marta Alf told Reuters.
The 23-year-old Piszczek was called up last week to replace Jakub Blaszczykowski when the winger was ruled out of the tournament with a hamstring injury.
Reserve keeper Tomasz Kuszczak also withdrew from the squad because of a back injury before the opening 2-0 defeat by Germany and captain Maciej Zurawski limped off at halftime with a thigh problem that will keep him out until the end of the group stage.
The Poles face Croatia in their final group game in Klagenfurt on Monday.
