Poland sack manager Waldemar Fornalik following the team's failure to reach next year's World Cup.

Poland have sacked their manager Waldemar Fornalik following the team's failure to qualify for next year's World Cup.

The 50-year-old took charge of the side in July 2012 after the dismissal of Franciszek Smuda.

However, Fornalik has now been fired due to a disappointing qualification campaign.

A Polish Football Association statement read: "The coach Waldemar Fornalik has ceased to be coach of the Polish national team."

Poland, who were beaten 2-0 by England on Tuesday night, had to settle for a fourth-placed finish in Group H.
