Georgia striker Nikoloz Gelashvili is set to miss the upcoming meeting with Poland after getting injured in training on Tuesday. It is not clear yet how long he will be absent.
Meanwhile Georgia coach Temuri Ketsbaia underlined his detemined mood ahead of Friday's qualifier. "I will step down if we are not able to beat Poland," said the 46-year-old, whose team lie fifth in six-team Group D with only a victory over Gibraltar to boast about after three matches.
Georgia coach Temuri Ketsbaia has preferred Nika Dzalamidze to Valeri Kazaishvili in his squad to face Group D leaders Poland at home next Friday. If he plays, the 22-year-old Dzalamidze will win his fifth cap exactly two years after his fourth.
