Opposed to Slovakia on Monday to start its Euro, Poland lost 1-2 in St. Petersburg.
This is one of the surprises of this first round of the Euro. The Poland huge Robert Lewandowski suffered the law of Slovakia, this Monday in St. Petersburg, for his entry into the tournament. A result which already compromises the Polish chances in the competition.
With at their head the very experienced Marek Hamsik, the Slovaks took the bull by the horns, causing the unfortunate goal against the unfortunate Szczesny (0-1, 18e) to take the lead in this part. Deprived of Milik and not necessarily helped by a Lewandowski who – once is not customary – turned out to be rather discreet, Poland came back after the break thanks to Linetty (1-1-, 46e).
No more wild cards against Spain
In vain. In the process, Krychowiak saw red on a second warning (62e), thereby limiting the effects of the Polish rise to power. After having bowed for a long time, the Slovaks finally took the final blow on a victorious recovery from Skriniar (1-2, 69e). A sword in the water all the more penalizing for Poland as it now has an appointment with theSpain, next June 19.
