Lukasz Fabianski has been in fine form ever since he joined Premier League West Ham United – and he was unbeatable in the Euro 2020 qualifiers.

For all the money West Ham United have spent in the last few years, their standout deal remains the £7 million signing of a 34-year-old goalkeeper (The Standard).

Since joining The Hammers from relegated Swansea City in the summer of 2018, Lukasz Fabianski has been nigh-on faultless after all. A man who couldn’t catch a cold during a traumatic spell at Arsenal now stands proudly alongside David de Gea, Alisson Becker and co as one of the Premier League’s most reliable shot-stoppers.

But it’s not just at club level where Fabianski is enjoying a late-career surge.

A veteran of 52 caps, Fabianski has retained his place as Poland’s number one despite the outstanding Serie A form of Juventus’ Scudetto-winning stopper Wojciech Szczesny – and that in itself speaks volumes.

And if it wasn’t for the West Ham favourite, Poland surely would have been swept away in Monday night’s Euro 2020 qualifier away to Austria.

It was Fabianski’s heroics between the sticks who saved the Poles from a second successive defeat. He single handedly kept his country top of Group G after a goalless draw that left Austria, and Marko Arnautovic in particular, shaking their head in disbelief.
