Borussia Dortmund captain Jakub Blaszczykowski reveals that he will fight to return to action quickly for club and country, after picking up an ankle injury that rules him out of Poland's match against England.

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jakub Blaszczykowski has insisted that he will fight to return from an ankle injury quicker than expected.

Blaszczykowski picked up the problem in Dortmund's 1-1 draw at Hannover last weekend, with the club's medical team predicting a spell of six weeks on the sidelines for the winger.

The Poland captain told Bild that he wants to make a speedy recovery to help both club and country over the autumn.

He said: "I immediately felt something wrong. As an athlete, you notice this.

"It's not easy, especially since I've had a good season. But I've had worse things. I will fight and try to come back quickly.

"This is very annoying. But it cannot be helped. The guys can do it without me."

The 26-year-old will miss Poland's home World Cup qualifier against England next week, but revealed that he plans to attend the game to support his side.
