Early lifeEdit

His father being a handball player, Nakrošius practiced basketball as a child and was part of his school teams.[3]

PolandEdit

Able to speak some Polish, the Lithuanian defender quickly acculturated into Poland and Rzeszów upon getting there in 2012,[4] making 34 appearances and scoring 1 goal.

He has stated that the main problem with football in Latvia and Lithuania is that the clubs do not know how to manage their money and sometimes do not have sponsors.[3]

Meeting his wife, Kasia,[4] in Rzeszów, Nakrošius has one son.[3]
