Poland coach Waldemar Fornalik on Tuesday announced his squad for the 2014 World Cup qualifiers away to Montenegro on September 7 in Podgorica and at home to Moldova on September 11 in Warsaw.
Fornalik added seven names to a 16-man list made up exclusively of foreign-based players, unveiled on Friday.
Apart from Torino defender Kamil Glik and Reims midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak, the new call-ups are all from the Polish league.
The 49-year-old Fornalik, who has spent his entire career in the Polish league as a defender then coach, was appointed in July to replace Franciszek Smuda.
Smuda quit early following a disappointing showing on home soil at Euro 2012, where Poland failed to make it out of their group.
Fornalik's reign started badly when Poland lost 1-0 away in a friendly against Estonia on August 15.
Poland, Montenegro and Moldova are in qualifying Group H along with England, minnows San Marino and fellow Euro 2012 hosts Ukraine.
Defenders: Marcin Komorowski (Terek Grozny/RUS), Damien Perquis (Betis/SPA), Kamil Glik (Torino/ITA), Lukasz Piszczek (Borussia Dortmund/GER), Marcin Wasilewski (Anderlecht/BEL), Jakub Wawrzyniak (Legia Warsaw), Grzegorz Wojtkowiak (1860 Munich/GER)
Midfielders: Kuba Blaszczykowski (Borussia Dortmund/GER), Ariel Borysiuk (Kaiserslautern/GER), Kamil Grosicki (Sivasspor/TUR), Grzegorz Krychowiak (Reims/FRA), Adrian Mierzejewski (Trabzonspor/TUR), Rafal Murawski (Lech Poznan), Ludovic Obraniak (Bordeaux/FRA), Eugen Polanski (Mainz/GER), Maciej Rybus (Terek Grozny/RUS), Waldemar Sobota (Slask Wroclaw)
Forwards: Robert Lewandowski (Borussia Dortmund/GER), Arkadiusz Piech (Ruch Chorzow), Marek Saganowski (Legia Warsaw)
