Sebastian Mila (born 10 July 1982 in Koszalin) is a Polish professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Śląsk Wrocław in the Polish Ekstraklasa.[1]

He has earned over 30 caps for the Poland national football team from his debut in 2003, and was included in the nation's squad for the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

Club career[edit]

In 2003, Mila gained notice as an exciting player for Poland's Dyskobolia Grodzisk Wielkopolski with a goal that eliminated the Premiership outfit Manchester City from the 2003/04 UEFA Cup.

He signed for Vålerenga on 9 February 2007, after a rather turbulent stay in FK Austria Wien. He was contemplating an offer to move to the Chicago Fire of Major League Soccer in July 2006. Groclin complained to FIFA, because they felt that Austria Vienna did not have the right to sell Mila. At that time he was only on loan from the Polish club.

Sebastian Mila joined Polish First Division side ŁKS Łódź on loan in the Polish transfer window 2008.

In July 2008, he signed a four-year contract with Polish club Śląsk Wrocław. In the spring of 2009, in his first year with the club, he led the team to the Polish Cup trophy. As a captain in 2011 he led the team to a 2nd place finish, a year later he led Śląsk to its first championship in 35 years.

International career[edit]

A European U18 Championship winner with Poland in 2001, Mila has 28 caps for the full Poland national football team.[2] He was selected to the 23-men national team for the 2006 FIFA World Cup finals in Germany, but did not make an appearance in any of the games. He also participated at the 1999 FIFA U-17 World Championship in New Zealand.[3] On 11 October 2014, he scored his first international goal for over six years, finishing off a 2–0 European qualifying win which was Poland's first from fall of communism victory against Germany, as well as the very first over actual World Champions.[4]
