Jan Tomaszewski (born 9 January 1948) is a retired Polish footballer (goalkeeper), who was nicknamed "Tomek" and "The Man That Stopped England", named Best Goalkeeper on 1974 World Cup in West Germany. He grew up in Wroc aw where his parents were expelled from Wilno after World War II. A goalkeeper, Tomaszewski is best remembered by some for his performance for Poland against England, in a qualifying match for the 1974 World Cup, which England needed to win. Tomaszewski had been labelled "a clown" by Brian Clough before the match (the two men however became quite friendly in later years), but had the last laugh as he turned in a man-of-the-match performance repeatedly denying England's attackers; the only goal he conceded being an equalizing penalty from Allan Clarke. Earlier, Jan Domarski had scored for the Poles. Poland drew the game 1-1 and Poland qualified for the finals in West Germany at the expense of England.
