After Poland's dramatic qualification for the last 16 of the World Cup Finals, the internet has been flooded with witty memes acknowledging the goalkeeper Wojciech Szczęsny's key role.

Poland has qualified for the last 16 of the World Cup, despite losing 0-2 to Argentina. Poland qualified instead of Mexico based on a superior goal differential, so Szczęsny's role as goalkeeper was crucial - especially in view of his spectacular save from a Messi penalty.

Szczęsny has become a meme hero as a result, here are just a few:

"Szczęsny looks into the eyes of a GOAT (Greatest of All Time = Messi...)"

Several memes made references to Ronaldo - Szczęsny's teammate in Juventus (2018-2021) and Messi's main rival for many years:

 Many references to films and series, here the Lord of the Rings: "You shall not pass!"

And plenty of stats to back up the jokes:
