Poland's Kamil Glik out the World Cup after injuring shoulder attempting bicycle kick in training

The Monaco centre-back flung himself at a cross during training just hours after Poland announced their 23-man squad.

He underwent further tests on Tuesday in Nice where Zbigniew Boniek, head of the Polish FA, confirmed their worst fears on Twitter.

Boniek wrote: "What a bummer, @kamilglik25 is hurt and will not go to the World Cup."

According to AP news, a Poland doctor said the player will need at least six weeks to fully recover.

The news will come as a huge blow for the 30-year-old and the Poland national side with Glik one of the leaders among the side.

He has earned 57 caps for his country since his debut in 2010.

But one player's loss in another's gain with Stuttgart defender Marcin Kaminski set to replace the ex-Torino ace in the squad.
