In recent years, there has been a heated debate in the domestic media about who should be number “1” in the Polish national team. Some experts and fans saw in this role the extremely experienced Łukasz Fabiański, who confirmed both in Swansea and West Ham that he is a goalkeeper at the highest level.
The dispute and the potential problem were settled by the former coach of “White and red”, Paulo Sousa, who he clearly communicated that the undisputed number 1 in his team is Szczęsny.
The situation has not changed during the tenure of Czesław Michniewicz, who highly appreciated the skills of the Juventus goalkeeper. Fernando Santos also did not decide on drastic changes, who, like his predecessor, trusts Szczęsny, realizing what skills he has.
The former representative indicated the successor of Szczęsny. One name came up
Unfortunately, time is merciless and a football career does not last forever. Fans are wondering who could be the potential successor of Wojciech Szczęsny in the Polish team. Many experts speak in one voice on this issue, pointing to Kamil Grabara. A similar view is presented by former national team member Marcin Żewłakow.
During his visit to “Kanal Sportowy”, he made it clear that the young goalkeeper is the ideal successor to Wojciech Szczęsny, even despite the fact that he was a bit quieter recently because he was not appointed.
Once he’s in the squad, he won’t give up his place
~ stressed Marcin Żewłakow
The expert also added that in his opinion, Kamil Grabara will be a goalkeeper “for years”. He compared the goalkeeper of Copenhagen to another legendary player of our national team.
He grows into someone like Artur Boruc was for Celtic Glasgow
~ added the former representative of Poland.
Marcin Żewłakow openly admitted that Kamil Grabara has all the features of a very good goalkeeper for him, who can be the strength of our national team.
He seems to be fine with it. He has personality, he has skills, he likes challenges, he is not afraid of matches, he is sometimes defiant, he likes to provoke.
