ClubEdit

Tyrała was born in Racibórz, Poland. He moved to Borussia Dortmund as an 11-year-old boy and passed through all the youth ranks. He was named Sportsman of 2004 in Soest. At age 16, he was selected for Borussia Dortmund's Senior squad. But in 2005, he ruptured the cruciate ligament in his left knee and was sidelined for six months.

Tyrała was honoured by the German Football Association (DFB) with a third place in the category "under 17's" in 2005. He won the "Adler Cup" with Borussia Dortmund's under 17's and became the tournaments top goal-scorer with seven goals. In April 2005, he injured his medial meniscus in training. He made several appearances in preparation for the 2006–07 season and made his full Bundesliga debut on 22 September in an away defeat to Borussia Mönchengladbach. Tyrała also played for Borussia Dortmund's second team and wore the number 28 on his shirt.

After twelve years with Borussia Dortmund, he announced his departure on 18 May 2010 and signed a two-year contract with VfL Osnabrück.[2] On 5 June 2014, he joined FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt.[3]

In May 2019, Tyrała announced his retirement from professional football due to injury problems.[4][5]

International careerEdit

Tyrała has played for Germany's U-19 national team. He scored his first goal in September 2006. In 2007, Tyrała played for Germany in the under 19's European Championships in Austria.

However, he requested a Polish passport, desiring to play for Poland.[6] On 21 November 2008, Tyrała was called up by the Polish national team coach Leo Beenhakker to their national team for friendly matches in Antalya, Turkey. He made his first appearance for the Polish national team in a friendly against Serbia on 14 December 2008.[7]
