Will Robert Lewandowski ever score at the World Cup? It was an escape from defeat for Mexico as they earned a goalless draw with Poland in an entertaining Group C match on Tuesday.
The Mexican have the iconic Polish captain, Robert Lewandowski to thank. He could not convert a seond half penalty kick at the Stadium 974.
Lewandowski earned the penalty after a VAR check 11 minutes into the second half when Hector Moreno tugged at his shirt. However, the striker, who has never scored at the World Cup, saw his shot saved by Guillermo Ochoa.
Today I feel sorry for Robert, because I know how much he wanted to score at the World Cup,” Poland coach Czeslaw Michniewicz said.
“So far he has not succeeded, but I hope that in the next opportunities that lie ahead of him he will convert them into goals.”
The result leaves Saudi Arabia as surprise group leaders following their remarkable 2-2 upset of overwhelming favourites, Argentina.
