Club careerEdit

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 Warsaw was announced.[3]

In July 2014, Kokoszka signed a three-year contract with FC Torpedo Moscow,[4] however in April 2015, Kokoszka left Torpedo Moscow having not been paid by the club for four months.[5]

International careerEdit

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.
