Poland named a provisional squad for Euro 2016 on Thursday and Wojciech Szczesny made the cut.
The squad consists of four goalkeepers rather than the three who will go to the tournament in France, so Szczesny will be hoping he has done enough this season to make it.

Spending the campaign on loan at AS Roma, Szczesny has been a little inconsistent but ultimately impressed, winning over Luciano Spalletti, who is keen to extend the deal.
Eight clean sheets in 33 Serie A appearances doesn’t look like a good record but Szczesny has been playing very well of late, helping the side to a 16-match unbeaten run.
The last of Szczesny’s 25 Poland caps was won in March but it is clear there is still an even race between him, Bournemouth goalkeeper Artur Boruc and former Arsenal man Lukasz Fabianski.
Przemyslaw Tyton is also in the provisional squad but is likely to be the goalkeeper dropped when the 23-man squad is finalised.
After being first choice for his country for some time, Szczesny fell out of favour but regular football at Roma appears to have put him back in contention.
Hopefully Wojciech, who could face Mesut Özil’s Germany in the group stage, makes the final squad!
