It felt somewhat weird this summer that Nottingham Forest weren’t linked with a move to sign Kamil Grosicki.
The Polish player was denied a move to Forest in October 2020. Forest submitted the paperwork late and the winger stayed at West Brom.
It was anticipated that he’d join the Reds in January 2021 but nothing transpired and Grosicki stayed at The Hawthorns.
Last summer he chose to join Polish outfit Pogon Szczecin and now his World Cup aspirations look to have been bolstered.
At 34-years-old, this will absolutely be Grosicki’s last chance to appear at a major tournament.
Ahead of the tournament, the winger has now been included in the Poland squad for Nations League games later this month.
Poland have been handed a tough group in Qatar. They will face Mexico, Saudi Arabia and Argentina when the action gets underway.
Now, Grosicki has a chance to showcase his talent to the national boss and force his way into the reckoning for the tournament.
Last season, his form was good. He scored nine goals and claimed seven assists during 27 appearances in the team.
Now, he’s been handed his just rewards and the World Cup could be calling for Grosicki.
Forest linked with Grosicki but he’s reaped rewards since failed move
The Poland international would have been a quality signing had Chris Hughton landed him in 2020.
Still, his decision to reject the club some months later now looks to have paid dividends for the veteran.
Grosicki had a pretty decent reputation in England and did at Hull and West Brom.
Now, he will have his sights set on heading to the World Cup in a few months.
He’s been included in the squad to face Netherlands and Wales, with game time in his sights.
Grosicki is enjoying his football in his homeland and naturally, he will feel that the move has given him the best possible chance to claim a World Cup spot.
