Maciej Rybus

A left-sided midfielder, Maciej Rybus has played regularly for Poland during Franciszek Smuda's reign as coach, albeit predominantly as a substitute. He will have to travel home for the UEFA European Championship, having left Legia Warszawa for Russian Premier League club FC Terek Grozny in February 2012.

• Joined Legia just before he turned 18 and made his first-team debut in November 2007, scoring his first league goal the following month in a 2-0 home win against Górnik Zabrze. 

• Came to the fore with a double in Legia's 2-1 defeat of Wisła Kraków on 27 April 2008 – the latter's only loss in their Ekstraklasa triumph that season; also started the 2008 Polish Cup final triumph over the same team to capture his first major trophy.

• Made his debut for Poland in Smuda's first match in charge – a November 2009 friendly versus Romania in Warsaw – and scored his maiden international goal on his first start four days against Canada.

• A Polish Cup winner again with Legia in 2011, he helped the club qualify for the group stage of the 2011/12 UEFA Europa League and appeared in all six matches.

• Agreed €2.7m transfer to Terek, joining the club after Legia's UEFA Europa League round of 32 elimination by Sporting Clube de Portugal in February 2012.
