Wojciech Szczesny is definitely forgiven for missing Poland's draw with Germany, and not just because his replacement didn't let any goals in. 

The Arsenal goalkeeper, who spent last season on loan at Roma, played in Poland's Euro 2016 opener against Northern Ireland and helped them to a 1-0 win. 

In that game, he suffered a nasty bruise to his thigh in a collision with teammate Lukasz Piszczek, which he has now felt the need to share with the world via Instagram.

Nasty knock 

And just for a little bit more dramatic effect, Szczesny added the caption: 

"If you think that football is only about good moments, it's not! It's about getting through moments like this with a smile and becoming stronger!"

Lukasz Fabianski took his place in goal for the Germany game in which Poland upset the odds by holding out for a drab draw against one of the tournament favourites.

Szczesny is hoping that the bruising will have died down in time for his country's final group game against Ukraine on Tuesday, though with four points, they are already on course for a place in the last-16. 

Fortunately, it doesn't look too serious even if it must have been pretty painful at the time. Here's the clip of him colliding with Piszczek: 

Roma will be hoping the injury doesn't interfere with a potential second season loan, as the Arsenal loanee has impressed this season after an inconsistent spell at the Emirates. 

There is little chance of him ousting Petr Cech from the Gunners team anytime soon, so he is expected to spend at least one more year in Serie A, where he looks much more at home. 

Is Szczesny better than Fabianski? Have your say in the comments.
