Robert Lewandowski, one of the world’s top strikers, has missed a penalty in Poland’s 0-0 draw with Mexico in the World Cup.
Lewandowski misses penalty in Poland draw
Poland captain Robert Lewandowski has failed to break his World Cup duck, seeing his second-half penalty saved in an entertaining goalless draw with Mexico at Stadium 974.
Lewandowski earned the penalty after a VAR check 11 minutes into the second half of Tuesday’s group C opener when Hector Moreno tugged at his shirt in the box.
But the Polish striker, who has never scored at the World Cup, saw his shot saved by goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.
In a temporary arena built using 974 recycled shipping containers that overlooks the Arabian Gulf, a sea of Mexico fans in green outnumbered their Polish counterparts and they made their presence felt in the 40,000-capacity venue.
