Poland draws against Italy

Poland managed to get a draw in the match against Italy in the new Nations League that is supposed to boost the attractiveness of friendly matches. In fact, Poland could have won the match if they did not concede a penalty in the closing stage of the game that allowed Italy to equalize and salvage a draw from the game.

This was the first game for the new Poland manager Jerzy Brzęczek and he will be happy with what he has shown in the game. Indeed the Poland players started the match the better and took control of the game against an Italy side that is also in a rebuilding phase.

Poland had the better possession and could have scored earlier but they were let down by some poor decision making in the final third of the pitch. They will obviously open the scoring just before half-time thanks to a powerful volley from Piotr Zieliński. He was assisted by Poland star player Robert Lewandowski who was rather subdued during the game.

The match will reach the break with the score 1-0 in favor of Poland. However, Italy will be greatly improved after the break and will cause Poland all kind of problems. However, the host will manage to keep control of the game and keep Italy far from approaching their goal.

But they will not be able to do anything in the 78th minute when they will concede a cheap penalty which Jorginho will convert and help Italy come back into the game. There will not be any more occasions after that and the match will end with the score 1-0 in favor of Poland.

Robert Lewandowski said that it was an interesting game and that they wanted to show to their fans that they can perform in the big games after a poor showing at the World Cup in Russia.
