Double scorer in Poland’s defeat against Sweden (2-3), Robert Lewandowski is struggling to “accept” elimination. The game could not have started any worse for Paulo Sousa’s men who conceded the opener after only 81 seconds on a tumble by Forsberg, who perforated the Polish defense with the help of Isak (1-0, 2nd) . In lack of efficiency, the White Eagles returned to a goal of qualifying before losing to Sweden (2-3) on Wednesday. The Poles are eliminated from the Euro, while the Scandinavians, already qualified at kick-off, finish at the top of Group E ahead of Spain.! First stunned, the Poles relied on a decisive intervention by Bereszynski to avoid the knockout. Forced to attack, Lewandowski’s teammates then tried to push and made a rain of crosses, each just as imprecise as the next … The Bayern Munich striker had the opportunity to equalize but he touched the bar at twice from a corner! Always so solid, the Blagults then had no trouble repelling the too muddled assaults of the Poles during a choppier end of the first period.
– Forsberg relies on Isak, who manages to give him back despite a buffer from Glik, and benefits from two favorable blocks to infiltrate the area and beat Szczesny with a cross strike from the left (1-0, 2nd). – Starting from midfield, Kulusevski leads a superb rush and infiltrates into the box. He begins to transplant in the axis before slipping a love of ball to Forsberg who places a victorious recovery of the right level with the post of Szczesny (2-0, 59th). – On the other hand, Zielinski launches Lewandowski superbly. On the left side of the area, the Polish star fixed Lindelöf before unleashing a magnificent shot curled from the right (2-1, 61st). – Frankowski makes a cross which finds Lewandowski, lonely in the box and who controls before beating Olsen with a low shot (2-2, 84th). – Kulusevski does a lot of work and serves Claesson who concludes.
