Jeremiah White is set to make his debut for Polish club GKS Belchatow when they travel on Saturday to Ernest Pohl Stadium to face Górnik Zabrze.
White's debut was pushed back a week due to a slight muscle injury however the speedy winger now appears to be recovered and can expect to see the field in his first ever Ekstraklasa match.
Although not expected to start, the native of Washington D.C. is likely to come off the bench as a second half substitute for Belchatow.
Saturday's visitors have opened their 2010-2011 season in solid fashion with the only blemish being a loss to first place Jagiellonia Bialystok.
Otherwise, Belchatow have claimed the three points in all of their other matches and currently sit in second place in the league standings.
White will hope to contribute to the vaunted Belchatow attack which is led by Marcin Żewłakow who has tallied four goals on the young season.
It has been feast or famine for Zabrze who sit sixth in the standings with nine points after three wins and two losses.
The hosts are paced by Tomasz Zahorski and Grzegorz Bonin who form the club's attack.
Zahorski has scored four goals on the season while Bonin's two assists also put him in select company.
Midfielder Mateusz Cetnarski is out for Belchatow while Zabrze will be missing midfielder Piotr Gierczak.
