(CNN) -- Blundering goalkeeper Artur Boruc has been axed by Poland for Wednesday's World Cup qualifier against San Marino and is returning to his Scottish club Celtic.
Keeper Boruc has been held responsible for Poland's World Cup qualifying defeat in Belfast.
Boruc has paid the price for a damaging display in the 3-2 defeat that saw Northern Ireland go top of Group Three at Windsor Park on Saturday.
He was at fault for the first two goals and then saw a back pass from Michal Zewlakow bobble over his foot for Northern Ireland's crucial third.
"What happened affected the whole team but especially Artur Boruc," said Poland coach Leo Beenhakker.
"We both decided that he should leave the camp and go back to Glasgow. I informed him, openly and honestly, that I will not use him for the match against San Marino."
Beenhakker will now opt for either Arsenal's Lukasz Fabianski -- who was ill at the weekend -- or Dundee United's Lukasz Zaluska.
FIFA, meanwhile, are examining reports from match officials after a linesman was struck on the head by a coin during that match in Belfast where play was held up for several minutes.
