Rectification. In the middle of the season, Stysiak went to Budowlani. For such a star as Brakocević didn't play in the finals of the Polish Championships is a mockery.

They all do that. She will recover physical and technical conditions like the others (Dani Lins, Thaísa) and then goes to a better team. Reply
