Giedrius Arlauskis (born 1 December 1987 in Telšiai) is a Lithuanian footballer. He is currently a goalkeeper for the Romanian Liga I club Steaua București. His brother Davydas Arlauskis is also a footballer.

He is also representing Lithuania national football team, but was involved into a scandal with former national football team coach Raimondas Zutautas.

National team[edit]

Arlauskis made his national team debut as a substitute against Moldova in a friendly game on 19 November 2008. He entered the game at the 46th minute and conceded a goal after 67 minutes while Lithuania played draw with Moldova 1-1.

His first official game came on 18 June 2010 when Lithuania played a goalless draw with Latvia in the Baltic cup.

Conflict[edit]

Arlauskis refused to represent the national team in October 2010 and March 2011 while Lithuania’s manager was Raimondas Zutautas. Arlauskis expressed his opinion that he was kept on the bench during national team games because he refused to sign with an agency which is close to Zutautas. The manager rejected these allegations.

The last time Arlauskis took part in national team training was in September 2010 when Lithuania played the Czech Republic in a Euro 2012 qualifier. Arlauskis was left on the bench.
