Tomaszewski was the goalkeeper who starred in Poland’s draw with England which resulted in 1-1. The result prevented England from qualifying in the World Cup the following year.
The Arsenal keeper said on the situation:
I told the lads I’m going to grow long hair if we draw England, it would be fantastic. You might remember the goalkeeper who played against England in 1973. You should all remember him.
So I’ll grow the long hair and try to do the job as well as he did. I might have to wear a wig because there won’t be enough time to grow it.
We all know Szczesny has gained some fame following his mature and exceptional performances for Arsenal this season, but this is sure to steal a bit more lime-light if he actually does it!
