Arsenal keeper Lukasz Fabianski fears he could miss out on a spot in Poland's Euro 2012 squad if he fails to secure regular first-team football.

Lukasz Fabianski: Current a backup to Szczesny at Arsenal

The 26-year-old has slipped down Arsene Wenger's pecking order following injury with Wojciech Szczesny the club's new number one.

Fabianski missed much of the second half of last season with a shoulder problem, but the Polish shot-stopper is now back to full fitness.

However, Wenger has opted to utilise Szczesny in Premier League outings with Fabianski being restricted to just two Carling Cup starts.

Fabianski is eager to seize any chance that comes his way, but he has hinted that he could consider his future in January if his situation does not change.

"It is hard for me coming back after a seven-month injury and for any keeper the most important thing is to play regularly," he told The Sun. "Before my injury, it looked like I was Arsenal's No 1 and that time out has really slowed me down.

"I feel I am now 100 per cent. But it is only when you are playing regularly that your confidence and feeling for the game gets better.

"I still have full belief in my ability. But now I need to take every single opportunity to show I deserve my chance.

"Of course, not playing doesn't make me happy and this season I have had to be patient and keep fighting for a place in the team.

"But Wojciech is playing well and the fact we have the Euros coming up in Poland makes things difficult.

"At the moment I am focusing everything on Arsenal. There is still time until the transfer window opens in January, so we will see what happens."
