Football: Poland lose 2-3 to Portugal in Nations League

Thursday, October 25th, 2018

Poland on Thursday lost 2-3 to Portugal in their second match of the new UEFA Nations League, a sobering home defeat that exposed the side’s frailties and left fans in low spirits. Genoa striker Krzysztof Piątek headed home a corner to put Poland 1-0 up in the 18th minute of the game in the southern Polish city of Chorzów, but Andre Silva equalized for Portugal from close range in the 31st.

An own goal from defender Kamil Glik after an unsuccessful sliding tackle handed Portugal the lead in the 42nd minute. Bernardo Silva sealed the victory for the visitors in the 52nd even though substitute Jakub Błaszczykowski slammed in a second goal for Poland from a cross in the 77th minute. The clash at Chorzów’s revamped Silesian Stadium marked the 100th international cap for Poland star striker Robert Lewandowski, who, however, failed to impress the crowd of around 55,000, Polish public broadcaster TVP said.

Wednesday, September 12th, 2018

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.

Robert Lewandowski plays his football in Germany

Monday, July 20th, 2015

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski plays his football in Germany, but he helped his national team keep their heads above the Germans in the race for the Euro 2016 qualification after scoring a hat-trick against Georgia in the 4-0 win.

Poland are the unlikely leaders in their Euro 2016 qualifying group, which also contains Germany and Scotland. They have a one-point advantage over the Germans with a couple of matches remaining. Finishing top of the group has its own advantage and Poland maintained this position with a convincing win over Georgia. This victory means that they can afford to relax in the upcoming game against Greece, which is a friendly.

The big test for the team will come in September when they travel to Germany in order to take on the Germans. They can now do so knowing that even a draw will be sufficient to maintain their position. Admittedly, a win against one of the minnows in the qualification group – Georgia – is unlikely to mean anything towards the potential of the team to do well in the final itself. However, with a striker like Lewandowski in their ranks manager Adam Nawałka will easily be thinking about a place in the knockout stages of the Euro 2016. (more…)

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

Polish international Robert Lewandowski has revealed that he made no apology to his Bayern Munich teammate Manuel Neuer after voting for Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in the latest FIFA Ballon d’Or award ceremony.

He won the league title with Bayern Munich and went on to lift the World Cup with Germany in Brazil. Ronaldo, meanwhile, won the Champions League with Madrid but he had a very disappointing World Cup.

Lewandowski joined ranks withNeuer only this season and he says that he is aware of the selection he made when it comes to the FIFA Ballon d’Or award. He does not see any reason to apologise forNeuer, as he feels that Ronaldo was more worthy of the award. (more…)
