Bialkowski Not Expected to Feature in Penultimate Poland Friendly
Friday, 8th Jun 2018 09:53
Blues keeper Bartosz Bialkowski isn’t expected to feature when Poland take on Chile in their penultimate pre-World Cup finals friendly in Poznań this evening.
The 30-year-old was named in the Polish 23 for Russia on Monday but is viewed very much as the third-choice glovesman behind Lukasz Fabianski (Swansea) and Wojciech Szczesny (Juventus) and manager Adam Nawalka is believed to be fielding what he sees as his strongest team against the Chileans.
Bialkowski, who said earlier in the week that making the squad was “a proud moment”, is more likely to play some part during Tuesday’s final friendly against Lithuania in Warsaw.
The Poles have been drawn in World Cup Group H along with Senegal, Colombia and Japan.
Town defender Jonas Knudsen was named in Denmark’s 23 for Russia on Sunday and his squad play their final friendly before travelling against Mexico at the Brøndby Stadion on Saturday evening.

Anger is Not a Good Emotion by TimS
I am starting to realise that as I grow older, I am harking back to a period of my life which seemed to be idyllic, but it probably was totally different in reality.
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.
