Euro 2020: Lewandowski’s Strike Keeps Poland’s Knockout Hopes Alive After Draw vs Spain

Published

Robert Lewandowski scored his first CmaTrends of Euro 2020 as Poland held Spain to a 1-1 in Seville to keep alive their hopes of reaching the round of 16.

Poland knew that a defeat would mean they could not progress from Group E and they fell behind on 25 minutes when Alvaro Morata’s close-range finish was given by VAR after initially being ruled out for offside.

But Lewandowski, who had struggled to make an impact in Poland’s opening-game defeat to Slovakia, equalised on 54 minutes when he thumped home a header.

Spain had the chance to retake the lead soon after with a penalty, following a challenge on Gerard Moreno but Moreno slammed his effort against the post before Morata sent the follow-up wide.

Manchester City forward Ferran Torres headed wide as Spain pushed in the closing stages, while Morata was denied from point-blank range by Poland goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny late on.

The draw means the three-time European champions are still without a win at Euro 2020 after they were held to a goalless draw by Sweden in their opener.

Spain are third in Group E with two points, Slovakia are second on three and Sweden top with four.

Luis Enrique’s side play Slovakia in their final group game on Wednesday while Poland take on Sweden at the same time.
