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.

Thoroughly well earned and deserved credit to you big man

Puts him in the shop window but also means that staying at Ipswich doesn't damage his prospects of playing for Poland

You worked hard for this so good luck and here's hoping you get some game time.

We are all so pleased for Bart I am sure,and it is nice to think that he has done this for a mid table Championship team.
Regarding goalkeepers,I don't think it is so imperative to be in the top flight,as 2nd tier forwards etc can hit the ball towards goal,just like their top tier colleagues.

He has got in the squad;so just hope he can actually make the team,fingers crossed.

I am however beginning to get a little bit worried about his new contract not being signed,as Bart wouldn't be the first of our star players to be sold for Evans back pocket.
