The Polish Football Association made the announcement less than 24 hours after the team had lost 2-0 to England at Wembley.

Poland ended their World Cup qualifying campaign a disappointing fourth in the Group H table - with 13 points from 10 games.

Association chairman Zbigniew Boniek thanked the 50-year-old Fornalik for his time in the job.

As a player, Fornalik was a defender with Ruch Chorzow for whom he made more than 200 appearances during a 12-year career.
