Lukasz is a Polish footballer who plays as a midfielder or right-back for Borussia Dortmund in Germany.
In 2001 Piszczek joined Gwarek Zabrze with whom he won the 2003 Polish youth championship. In 2004 he became the top scorer (along with Turk Ali Öztürk) of U-19 European Championships, after which he was signed by Hertha BSC and immediately loaned out to Zag³êbie Lubin. With Zag³êbie, he won the league championship during the 2006-07 season. At Zag³êbie, he played mainly as a left winger in 4-3-3 formation (with Wojciech £obodziñski on the right wing and Micha³ Cha³biñski in the center), although he has often been utilized as a centre forward. He scored 11 goals in 2006-07 season, being the club's second best scorer after Cha³biñski (13 goals).
In the fall of 2007 Hertha recalled the player. He scored his first goal in the Bundesliga on 26 April 2008 to earn a point against Hannover 96.
He missed most of the first half of the 2008-09 season as the result of a hip problem that eventually required surgery. He began training again in February 2009 but in March suffered a setback due to a minor knee injury. He returned to Bundesliga action in April.
Since arriving at Hertha, Piszczek initially played as a right midfielder or on the left wing, but in his second season he started to appear as a right back, after injury to Arne Friedrich. After Friedrich recovered, Piszczek lost his place in the starting line-up, but reclaimed it in 2009-10, when Friedrich moved to centre back position.
On 19 May 2010, he moved to Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer, signing a contract until June 2013.
Piszczek made his first appearance for the Poland national football team in a friendly versus Estonia on 3 February 2007.
On 6 June 2008, he was added to the Polish squad for Euro 2008, to replace the injured Jakub B³aszczykowski. He made one appearance, coming on a sub against Germany, but was injured in the training session for the next game and took no further part in the tournament.
He married is Ewa (June 2009) Lukasz and Ewa have daughter - Sara (born 03 march 2011).
