Michal Karbownik made his international debut for Poland against Finland in October last year.

“He has a lot of adaptability; he can play either side of the defence, as well as in midfield. He's an exciting young player who we are looking forward to having in the group.”

Karbownik made his Ekstraklasa debut for Legia in August 2019, going onto make 28 appearances that season as they lifted the Polish top-flight title.

He has played in several positions for club and country including right-back, left-back, wing-back and in midfield.
