Leo Beenhakker has surprised football fans in Poland and France by calling up young Frenchman Ludovic Obraniak. The 24-year old winger, who plies his trade with Lille in France qualifies to play for Poland through a Polish grandfather. Beenhakker together with his management team see Obraniak playing on the left wing or tucked behind the attacking midfielders. Due to problems with his current playing staff, namely Ebi Smolarek, who has not played regular football for a year, and Rafał Murawski, who has not played football since May, Beenhakker has been forced to look for talented footballers abroad. Obraniak follows in the footsteps of Roger and Olisadebe – naturalised foreigners who turned out for Poland. Last season, Obraniak played 33 times for Lille and scored nine goals. He was voted second best Lille player by France Football. Strangely enough, Obraniak will come into the squad together with an interpreter – the young winger speaks only French.
