As the attention of the fanbase focused on the seeming rebrand confirmation, Revs striker Adam Buksa made the preliminary roster for Poland’s two upcoming UEFA World Cup Qualifying matches in October.
Buksa piqued interest during his first stint with Poland during their last World Cup Qualifying stretch. The Krakow-native appeared in all three of Poland’s matches against Albania, San Marino, and England. Buksa would net his first professional hat trick as he found the net three times in Poland’s 7-1 win over San Marino. The 25-year-old striker netted four goals over his three appearances with Poland in September.
Buksa’s head coach Bruce Arena talked about his performances for Poland.
“He’s getting better,” he said. “I think these experiences are good for him. He’s still dealing with the complexities of international call-ups and how to manage it between a national team and a club team, so that’s been a bit of a challenge for him. He had a good start, obviously, to his international career and I’m sure that’s helped his confidence.”
The Poland National Team returns to World Cup Qualifying action on October 9th as they host San Marino at 2:45 PM EST and then travel to take on Albania on October 12th at 2:45 PM EST. Both matches will be available to stream on ESPN+. Luckily for Revs fans, Adam Buksa would not miss any games for the Revs as there are no games scheduled during Buksa’s absence.
Since arriving in New England in January of 2020, the Polish striker has appeared in 47 matches for the Revs, where he’s netted seventeen goals and four assists over 3171 minutes of action.
With speculation on Adam Buksa wanting to move on from New England, it will be interesting to see how this possible round of international duty for the Polish striker will impact any move in the future.
