Lukasz Fabianski is a Polish goalkeeper who is currently representing Poland national team and Premier League club Arsenal.
Born on 18 April 1985 in Kostrzyn nad Odrą, Fabianski started playing football at an early age. His first club was Polonia Słubice where he spent a year before moving to MSP Szamotuły, a well-known football academy in Poland, in 2000.
Fabianski then trained with three more clubs: Lubuszanin Drezdenko, Sparta Brodnica and Mieszko Gniezno- in between 2001 to 2004. Before moving to Arsenal in 2007, he spent a season with Lech Poznan and played for Legia Warszawa for two years.
Fabianski could not capitalize on his limited opportunities in his first few years at Arsenal. Until 2010, his first team appearance was limited to League Cup where he made some horrible mistakes, and thus, reducing the prospect of becoming Arsenal’s no. 1 goalkeeper in all competitions.
The Poland international got to start in the last four games of 2009-10 season in the absence of regular keeper Manuel Almunia who was out of action through a wrist injury. However, he suffered lots of criticism for his mistakes against Wigan Athletic and Blackburn Rovers.
Another injury to Almunia during 2010-11 season handed Fabianski a short but significant spell as no. 1 Arsenal keeper, before a shoulder injury in January 2011 ruled him out for the rest of the season.
Fabianski has so far played 18 matches for Poland national team.
