UEFA Euro 2020 | Spain 1-1 Poland: 5 talking points as Robert Lewandowski tears Spanish hearts

|

In a 1-1 draw in Seville, Alvaro Morata and Robert Lewandowski scored goals in each half to ensure that Spain and Poland could not be separated.

The hosts, Spain, came into the game off the back of a goalless draw with Sweden on the first day of the group stages of UEFA Euro 2020.

With manager Luis Enrique making only one change to his starting lineup, a win for La Roja would have put them in excellent position to qualify for the knockout phase. In attack, Manchester City winger Ferran Torres was replaced by Villarreal’s Gerard Moreno.

When Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich’s effort from the edge of the box brushed the top of the crossbar, Poland had the first glimpse at a goal in the game.

Spain took their time getting into the game and, as expected, controlled possession. In the 25th minute, Alvaro Morata converted a mishit shot by Moreno with a one-time finish into the net.

The goal was initially disallowed owing to offside, but VAR discussions revealed that the Juventus player was onside during the buildup.
