The Polish coach did not want to push Robert Lewandowski, who missed a penalty in the draw between Poland and Mexico on Tuesday in the World Cup.
Robert Lewandowski can be sorry… While he had the opportunity to open the scoring from the penalty spot in a closed match between Poland and Mexico (0-0), the Barça striker saw his attempt stopped by Guillermo Ochoa (58th).
At the end of the game, the Polish coach, Czeslaw Michniewicz, did not want to overwhelm his star at a press conference.
“Very great players have missed penalties”
“When a penalty is missed, you always wonder why, but only he can answer that question,” he said. Yesterday (Monday) he practiced taking penalties and he didn’t miss any. These are things that happen. Very great players have missed penalties, Socrates, Zico, Platini, Maradona… That’s football. It’s a shame for Robert, because I know how much he wanted to score in the World Cup. I know how hard it is when you miss like that and there’s no victory at the end of the game. »
