FC Utrecht's Sarota targeted by Poland

FC Utrecht youngster Adam Sarota has been invited to a training camp by the Polish Football Association.

The 21-year old, who joined the Dutch club from Brisbane Roar in April this year, holds both Australian and Polish passports and is being targeted to join the Poland national team ahead of their upcoming friendly with Australia.

Sarota's father, Tony, emigrated to Australia from Poland 30 years ago but insists he wants his son to play for the Socceroos but said he Poland is an option if new coach Holger Osieck fails to select him for Australia.

"We would prefer Adam to play for the Socceroos as he grew up supporting them and has always dreamed of playing for them," Sarota Snr told the Courier-Mail.

"But if they don't want Adam in the Australian squad for the qualifiers for the (2014) World Cup in Brazil, maybe Adam should play for Poland.

"Why should he miss out on the chance to maybe play at a World Cup?"
