Poland did not win because of Lewandowski’s penalty miss

In the third match of the day in the World Cup in Qatar, Poland had to leave the field with disappointment despite being so close to winning against Mexico. The biggest star of the team, Roberto Lewandowski, missed the penalty and the match ended with a goalless margin.

Poland was aggressive from the start of the match. The country of Roberto Lewandowski, one of the best stars of the time, showed absolute dominance in ball possession and attack throughout the match. Polish footballers kept the ball for 61 percent of the entire match. And a total of four were able to take shots along the opponent’s goal.

Meanwhile, the North American country kept the ball to themselves for 39 percent of the entire match. However, Mexico did not have much edge in the attack. The team managed to take only two shots on goal. They also did not see the goal.

The first half of the match was very slow. However, as time progressed, the Poles became somewhat aggressive. A few goal chances are also created. But the goal was not seen due to missed opportunities. As a result, the first half ended goalless.

In the second half of the game, both teams increased the pace of the game. And Poland got a penalty in the 55th minute of the match. Polish defender Nikola Zalewski illegally blocks Christian Biele inside the D-box. The referee decided the penalty by weight. But Lewandowski failed to score from the penalty. In the end, there was no goal. As a result, the match ended goalless.
