Poland will refufe to play against Russia in the forthcoming World Cup play-off.

Poland will refuse to play their forthcoming World Cup play-off with Russia in March following the country’s invasion of Ukraine.

The winners of Poland vs Russia are due to play Sweden or Czech Republic for a place in the finals.

A Polish FA spokesman has told Sky Sports News: “No more words, it’s time to act. Due to the escalation of the aggression of the Russian Federation towards Ukraine, the Polish national team does not intend to play the play-off match against Russia.

“This is the only right decision. We are in talks with the Swedish and Czech federations to bring forward a common position to FIFA.”

A FIFA spokesperson told Sky Sports News they are monitoring the situation and an update about the game would be communicated in due course.
