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.
