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.

Avoiding Sunderland's Fate - Lessons From Sunderland Till I Die by vancouverblue
I was sat watching Netflix last night and the Sunderland Till I Die docuseries. As one episode turned into two and then five and thoughts of that decent night's sleep I knew I needed disappeared into the early hours, I couldn’t help but think of the similarities between them last season and Town this year.
We'll Win Again Some Sunny Day by SpiritOfJohn
2018 has been a terrible year to be an Ipswich Town supporter.
Amazingly, we have only one twice at home this year, against Leeds in January and Barnsley in April.
What Would Eric Gates Say? by millvalleyblue
I started supporting Ipswich when I was six. I’m 49 now and live in Mill Valley, just north of San Francisco. I grew up in Cork. People always ask: Ipswich? Why? The reason was my best friend, Christopher, supported Ipswich. I’ve no reason why he did. All the other kids supported Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal or Leeds.
Feeling Very Blue Not Watching You by Pessimistic
Being an overseas supporter means I get to see all the live streams of Ipswich Town games for a seasonal subscription fee. Great idea! Well, it used to be, until one day I could not log in and asked iFollow to resend my password.
Man v Fat Football - A Personal Blog by GavTWTD
I'm fat. There, I said it. I'm a 248lb/112kg bloke in my late 40s and I'm struggling with my weight. I've lacked the will power to either do something about it or, when I've succeeded, to keep it off.
