Fernando Santos, who was the Portuguese national team’s manager until last month, was on Tuesday named as Poland’s new coach.
“From today, I am Polish,” Santos declared at the official ceremony in Warsaw.
“It is an honour to continue my work as a trainer here,” he added.
Santos, 68, succeeds Czeslaw Michniewicz, who was sacked last month following a last-16 appearance at the World Cup in Qatar.
Poland finished second in their group, beating Saudi Arabia, drawing with Mexico and losing to eventual champions Argentina.
