Szczesny (thigh) remains out of the starting XI for Tuesday's match with Ukraine, ESPN reports.

Szczesny is still battling a thigh injury which held him out in Thursday's match with Germany that ended in a 0-0 draw. Lukasz Fabianski will be in goal for Tuesday's match. If Poland advance to the Round of 16, Szczesny will again face a fitness test to see whether he will be able to play.

Szczesny did not play Thursday against Germany because of a thigh injury.

Lukasz Fabianski started in place of Szczesny and shut out the defending World Cup champions, putting plenty of pressure on who will start the final match of the group stage.

Roma asked Arsenal if the club can extend the loan agreement for Szczesny for another season, according to the Daily Mail.

The keeper made 42 appearances for Roma last season. The Italian club look to add an option to purchase him at the end of the agreement, while Arsenal are seeking a fee for its agreement.

Szczesny kept a clean sheet in Sunday's 1-0 victory over Northern Ireland at the Euros.

After a strong season for Roma on loan from Arsenal, Szczesny came in to this tournament in good form, having not lost a match in Serie A since Jan. 24. Szczesny wasn't tested all afternoon and the Northern Irish didn't put the Polish defense under much duress. That will change over Poland's next two matches against Ukraine and Germany as they look to advance into the knockout stages.

Szczesny gave up two goals, but had eight saves in the 2-0 loss to Real Madrid on Tuesday, during the Champions League Round of 16.

Szczesny did all he could in the loss with eight saves, but his defense just could not hold up against the attack of Real Madrid. While he and AS Roma play well most of the time, Szczesny seems to falter when playing against the best competition in the world.

Szczesny said he hopes to play for Arsenal again after his current loan with Roma expires, according to the Daily Mail.

The Poland keeper is hoping to return to the Premier League next season to unseat Petr Cech. The on-loan keeper has helped Roma to third in the Serie A after 11 matches.

Szczesny joined AS Roma on a season-long loan from Arsenal.

Szczesny became the third choice keeper at Arsenal after they signed Petr Cech this summer, and he will now compete with Morgan De Sanctis for the starting job at Roma, though he is widely believed to be the front-runner for the role.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Szczesny is expected to spend the 2015/16 season on loan at AS Roma, ESPN FC reports.

Szczesny lost his starting spot at Arsenal last January when David Ospina took over, and the summer arrival of Petr Cech only pushed him further down the depth chart. He will have to battle Morgan De Sanctis for the starting job, though the Polish international is expected to win the competition.
