Wojciech Szczesny has no intention of losing a game at the European Championship

Arsenal star Wojciech Szczesny is targeting Euro 2012 success with Poland, despite the fact that they are the lowest ranked side in the competition.

Poland are in the same group as Greece, Russia and the Czech Republic and the Gunners stopper has no intention on losing any games.

“We’ve had some good results recently and we’re in good form,” he said. “The spirit in the team is great and we can’t wait to get started.

“I want to go all the way. I’m only in it to win it. I don’t plan to lose any games, so therefore I want to win the championship. Why not?”

Szczesny also believes that the fans can play a massive part in helping Poland to success at the Europan Championship.

“The fans are behind us and they expect us to do well,” he said. “There is a lot of pressure but we are growing in confidence. So there is big excitement as well as big pressure. And that’s good for me because I enjoy it.

“We are playing a Euros in our own country and we should enjoy it. Playing for your national team is the best feeling in the world. And playing in the Euros at home doesn’t get any better.”
