Adam Kokoszka (Polish pronunciation: [ˈadam kɔˈkɔʂka], born 6 October 1986 in Andrychów) is a Polish footballer who plays as a central defender for FC Torpedo Moscow.

Club career[edit]

His debut for Wisła Kraków came on 4 August 2006 against Arka Gdynia.

On 28 July 2008 he signed a five-year contract with Empoli,[1] using the Webster ruling to leave Wisla. Wisla brought the matter to FIFA but in October the organization cleared Kokoszka to play for Empoli.[2] He debuted for his new club in a 4-0 win over U.S. Sassuolo Calcio on 28 October.

On 19 January 2011 a half-year loan transfer to Polonia Warszawa was announced.[3]

International career[edit]

Although he had made only a few appearances for his club, he was noticed by Leo Beenhakker and debuted for the Poland national football team a short while later, in a friendly away to the United Arab Emirates on 6 December 2006. In the next friendly match against Estonia he scored his first goal for Poland. He was called up for Euro 2008 and made one appearance, in Poland's final match against Croatia.
