Szczesny:”As a kid I always dreamed about exceeding my Dad”

Arsenal’s first choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny declared that it would be a dream come true for him to surpass his father’s call-ups for the senior Polish national squad. Szczesny senior, Maciej Szczęsny got 7 appearances for the Polish national squad between 1991 and 1996, and now the junior is after his father’s record.

Arsenal’s goalkeeper got his first call-up to the national squad in 2009 for a series of friendly games against Romania and Canada, and he made his first appearance in the second game coming in as a second half substitute. Since then Wojciech managed to become Arsenal’s first choice goalkeeper and he gathered 6 appearances for Poland’s national team.
