Jelen likely for Poland squad, Janas reveals

WARSAW, May 13 (Reuters) - Wisla Plock winger Ireneusz Jelen is likely to claim one of five or six places in Poland's World Cup squad still up for grabs, coach Pawel Janas said on Saturday.

Jelen, 25, has six caps and one goal for the national team and boosted his case with a much-praised performance in a 2-1 win over Saudi Arabia in March.

With piles of pace and a good touch he has become one of the Polish league's most feared frontmen, leading Plock to a victory in the Polish Cup this season.

'I will give Jelen a chance on the right of midfield,' Janas told daily Gazeta Wyborcza in an interview.

On Monday Janas names his 23-man squad for the World Cup finals in Germany, where Poland are grouped with the hosts as well as Ecuador and Costa Rica.

He indicated 17 to 18 places are already filled but he will make his final decision on the remainder after Sunday's friendly against the Faroe Islands.

'In essence, I already have the first 11, but I am still looking for reserves on the flanks and defence, at right midfield and possibly at centre midfield,' Janas said.

For the goalkeeper spots Janas is expected to pick Celtic's Artur Boruc alongside Liverpool's Jerzy Dudek and choose either West Bromwich Albion's Tomasz Kuszczak or Spartak Moscow's Wojciech Kowalewski.
