Ipswich Town goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski has been named in Poland’s provisional 35-man squad for the World Cup in Russia this summer.

The 30-year-old is one of four goalkeepers on the long list, with one likely to be cut when the final 23-man squad is announced before June 4.

Wojciech Szczesny (Juventus) and Lukasz Fabianski (Swansea) look certs to be on the plane, with Bialkowski – who only recently earned his first senior cap with 45 minutes in a 1-0 friendly defeat to Nigeria – battling with Lukasz Skorupski (Roma) for the other place.
