When the phrase "new Robert Lewandowksi" gets bandied about in Poland then you know that you are talking about an exceptional talent - and young David Kownacki is just that. He can play in the centre of the attack or out on the right wing, and scored his first goal in the Polish league at the tender age of 16. When he was transferred in 2017 to Italian club Sampdoria, he already had over 100 appearances to his name for Lech Poznan.

Poland goalkeeping legend Jan Tomaszewski said of Kownacki: "If he gets to play at the World Cup then he could be the find of the tournament in Russia."
