Bialkowski Confirmed in Poland Squad
Friday, 9th Mar 2018 12:58
Blues keeper Bartosz Bialkowski’s first call-up to the Polish national squad has been confirmed. The Poles face Nigeria in Wroclaw on Friday 23rd March and South Korea in Chorzów four days later.
The 30-year-old is one of four keepers in the squad along with Wojciech Szczesny (Juventus), Lukasz Fabianski (Swansea) and Lukasz Skorupski (Roma).
Bialkowski met with Polish boss Adam Nawalka following the recent 0-0 draw with Burton Albion, a game watched by the former Wisła Kraków defender and his assistant Tomasz Iwan.
While two of Nawalka’s World Cup keepers look nailed-on certainties - Szczesny and Fabianski - the third space in the squad travelling to Russia is more open with Skorupski currently not playing games.
Bialkowski won six U20s caps as a youngster but is yet to be involved with his national squad at the senior level.
Poland were drawn in World Cup Group H along with Senegal, Colombia and Japan.

Six Was the Best by SpiritOfJohn
When Kevin Beattie's book, The Beat, was published in 1998 there were a few informal signing sessions arranged. As I was a schoolboy in the 70s, Kevin was a footballing hero of mine, so I thought I would brave the crowds and get in the queue for his autograph at Brannigan's in Ipswich. My Mum was also a big fan, so we decided to get there early and wait in line.

If there's one lesson that should be learned from Ipswich's match against Brentford, it's that sometimes you should stick with what you know.
A Driven Individual and - So Far - a Serial Winner by monty_radio
In such a day as this when allowing your new manager and regime 10 games is considered the height of patience and sense and, by some, lenient nonsense, Paul Hurst is naturally incurring fans' spoken and written doubts after seven - albeit with an unrecognisable team.
But We’re Not Playing Derby by NormEmerges
As we head into the derby game against Norwich, it seems curious to name it after a completely different town.
