Earning his tenth cap for Poland, Derby County winger Kamil Jozwiak starred as a substitute on Thursday evening as the Eagles played out a 3-3 draw with Hungary.
The 22-year-old replaced Sebastian Szymanski in the 59th minute with the hosts 2-0 up. Just two minutes later, the game was level and ‘Joz’ was to thank for the equaliser.
After Krzysztof Piatek had halved the deficit in the 60th minute, Piotr Zielinski, from distance, sent a sublime through ball into the path of Jozwiak who took a touch to his right before slotting an effort into the bottom left hand corner from close range.
Hungary then regained the lead, but the ever impressive Robert Lewandoski levelled things up once more with a late 82nd minute strike to see the game end all square.
Jozwiak has had a frustrating inaugural season in England so far, recording just one goal and two assists in his 34 Derby appearances to date, despite showing clear signs of quality.
This is not the first time he has impressed on the international stage during his stay with the Rams either. Back in November, the Pole scored a stunning solo goal in a 2-1 defeat against the Netherlands, further raising the question; why has he struggled so much for Derby since his £3.9million move?
There are just eight games of the Championship season remaining for the Rams and Wayne Rooney’s side need a number of players to step up after the international break if they’re to be sure of maintaining their Championship status for next season.
Could a confidence-boosted Jozwiak aid Derby’s survival hopes?
