Polish FA deny racism claims

The Polish Soccer Affiliation have strongly denied allegations of racism from centre-back Kamil Glik throughout Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with England.

Glik clashed with Kyle Walker on the stroke of half-time and sparked a full scuffle between all of the gamers on the pitch, and it later emerged that the English FA believed a racist remark from the Poland defender was the spark of all of it.

FIFA are investigating the problem after the racism allegations had been reported to the fourth official at half-time, however the Polish FA have gone public with their dismissal of the claims.

“I’ve spoken to our gamers and so they completely deny that there was any racism,” Polish FA spokesman Jakub Kwiatkowski advised Sky Sports News.

“It was a traditional soccer incident. Passions had been operating very excessive. There was some pushing between Glik and Walker at a free-kick. There was a variety of pressure and a few pushing however no racism.
