Włodzimierz 'Włodek' Leonard Lubański (born February 28, 1947 in Gliwice-Sośnica) is a former Polish football (soccer) striker, the all-time goal scorer for the Polish national team. He was considered the best Polish striker ever.

For his national team, Lubański amassed 65 caps between 1963 and 1980, scoring 44 goals (if Olympic matches are considered, the numbers become 80 caps and 50 goals). He scored five hat-tricks in his international career, including the rare feat of five goals in one game against Luxembourg in 1969. Lubański made his international debut at the age of 16 years and 188 days, becoming the youngest player ever to appear for Poland. He led his country to the gold medal at the 1972 Summer Olympics. He missed the 1974 FIFA World Cup after a Roy McFarland tackle during the Poland v England WC qualifier damaged his cruciate ligament and put him out of football for two years. Lubański returned to play in the 1978 FIFA World Cup, but never quite reached his previous levels of footballing prowess.

At club level, Lubański spent most of his career at Górnik Zabrze and also played at KSC Lokeren.

In November 2003, to celebrate UEFA's Jubilee, he was selected as the Golden Player of Poland by the Polish Football Association as their most outstanding player of the past 50 years. [1]

Lubański is assistant coach at his former club KSC Lokeren, specifically training the strikers.
