Poland call up Bielik for Under-21 European Championships


Krystian Bielik’s form for Birmingham City at the tail end of the Championship season has earned him a debut call-up to the Poland under-21 squad for the European Championships in his home country.

The 18-year-old defender now has the chance to face teammates Rob Holding and Calum Chambers in Group A with Poland taking on England, Slovenia and Slovakia.

Should Bielik play for Poland he’ll join the lengthening list of players likely to miss Arsenal’s pre-season tour of Australia and China.

Last week he mentioned in an interview that should he get the nod from his country he’d probably not return to training until 13 July, the day the Gunners play Sydney FC.
