West Brom's Tomasz Kuszczak got the nod as back-up goalkeeper to Celtic's Artur Boruc at the expense of Jerzy Dudek of Liverpool in Poland's World Cup squad.
Kuszczak has been in superb form for relegated West brom
Kuszczak is one of four British-based players in the 23-man squad.
Boruc will be joined by team-mate and star striker Maciej Zurawski, while Southampton duo Kamil Kosowski and Grzegorz Rasiak were also selected.
However Wolves frontman Tomasz Frankowski is left out despite being top-scorer in qualifying.
Former captain Tomasz Klos also failed to make the squad, while Wisla Krakow striker Pawel Brozek and Krakow full-back Dariusz Dudka come in despite only having a handful of friendly caps between them.
Poland coach Pawel Janas said: "Dudek is a very good keeper but he has played very few games and that has acted in favour of those who have been playing at club level."
Poland open their campaign against Ecuador and will also face hosts Germany and Costa Rica in Group A.
