Thomas Kaminski (born 23 October 1992) is a Belgian footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Gent.

Club career

Kaminski debuted in the Belgian top league for Germinal Beerschot in May 2009. He became the starting goalkeeper in the 2010–11 season. In August 2011, Kaminski signed a one-year contract with Oud-Heverlee Leuven.[1] He also signed an agreement which tied him to Anderlecht at the end of that season.[2] He played his first match for Anderlecht on 25 August 2012 against Oud-Heverlee Leuven. Summer 2015 Kaminski was loaned by F.C. Copenhagen.[3]

International career

Shortly before the 2014 FIFA World Cup Kaminski was called up to the senior Belgium team as cover to Sammy Bossut after Thibaut Courtois was rested and Koen Casteels, Silvio Proto and Simon Mignolet had picked up injuries.[4] Kaminski was on the bench as Belgium beat Luxembourg 5–1 in a friendly,[5] but the match was scrapped from the record books as manager Marc Wilmots used 7 substitutes rather than the allowed 6.[6] Kaminski was not part of the final squad after Courtois and Mignolet returned to the side.

Personal life

Kaminski is of Belgian (mother) and Polish (father) descent.[7]
