Poland are now out of Russia 2018 after losses to Senegal and Colombia in Group H.

The Colombians were vocal in Kazan Arena, however the Juventus gloveman denied it had much of an impact.

“That would be a very stupid excuse for us, but their fans were incredible,” Szczesny said post-match.

“We had more of our fans in the first game and we still lost, so I don’t think it made much of a difference.

“We’ll try to repay the support of our own fans, they’re disappointed like us. We need to pick ourselves up and try to get the result in the last game.”

Szczesny also said they were still kicking themselves about the 2-1 loss to Senegal in the opening match.

“You accept games like this one, when you play against a stronger team and they dominate, you can accept it,” he said.

“The first game, we have regrets because we felt we could get something out of it and today you have to put your hands up and say the opposition was better than us.”

Poland now face Japan in the final match and Szczesny said they would not make life easy for the Blue Samurai.

“We need to have respect for the opposition in the group, we have to play at maximum, we can’t just give away three points and gift the qualification to Japan,” the 28-year-old said.

“We have to try pick ourselves up and try qualify for Euros.

“It’s difficult because we have nothing to play for, but we have a third game at the World Cup to play and we represent our country which is the greatest honour you can have.

“With a lot of pride and belief, that’s how we need to approach the next game.”
