Co-hosts Poland will name a new coach within two weeks to replace Franciszek Smuda, who stood down after the Poles went out in the group stage, the Polish football association (PZPN) said on Wednesday.

"The names of the candidates will be made known on July 10, and the new coach will be chosen then," said Agnieszka Olejkowska, spokeswoman for the PZPN.

"Time is marching on, and we need a quick decision in order to ensure that the team are prepared for their World Cup qualifiers," she added.

Drawn in Group H for the qualifiers for the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil, Poland will face Euro 2012 quarter-finalists England, Montenegro, Moldova, minnows San Marino and fellow Euro 2012 hosts Ukraine.
