Kowalewski gets go-ahead to replace Kuszczak in Poland's team at Euro 2008

Poland goalkeeper Wojciech Kowalewski has received the go-ahead from UEFA to replace the injured Tomasz Kuszczak in the team's squad at the European Championship.
Poland coach Leo Beenhakker asked UEFA on Friday to replace Kuszczak, who was forced to withdraw after injuring his back during training, with the Korona Kielce goalkeeper.
Kuszczak, who backs up Edwin van der Sar at Manchester United, was fighting with Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski for the No. 2 spot in the Poland squad behind Celtic goalkeeper Artur Boruc.
Poland opens play at its first European Championship on Sunday against Germany. It also faces Croatia and co-host Austria in Group B.
