Robert Lewandowski: Both teams could have won
"I think that neither team had an advantage in the match and both could have won. I respect that one point, but at the same time we had an excellent goal-scoring chance. I failed to score the penalty kick. I really regret that. It hurts right now, but we must focus on the coming match," said Robert Lewandowski after the match against Mexico.
Czesław Michniewicz: Bittersweet point
"This is a bittersweet point and it leaves many options open. The draw in the first match still keeps both us and the Mexicans in contention. And this is the most important thing right now," said Czesław Michniewicz, the head coach of the Polish national team, right after the match against Mexico (0-0).
Goalless opening match. Poland drew against Mexico
The first match at the 2022 FIFA World Cup saw the Polish national team be held to a goalless draw against Mexico at Stadium 974. Despite focusing more on defence throughout the match, the White-and-Reds created a clear-cut chance. In the 58th minute, the team was awarded a penalty but Robert Lewandowski failed to score, with Guillermo Ochoa predicting his shot very well. The team led by Czesław Michniewicz will play the next match on Saturday against Saudi Arabia, which pulled out a huge upset on Matchday 1 by defeating Argentina 2-1.
Robert Lewandowski: time to dispel all doubts
In club football, Robert Lewandowski has achieved virtually everything. He can boast victories in the Champions League and the Club World Cup as well as more than ten top scorer titles in various tournaments. In Qatar, however, he has something more to prove: the ability to lead the national team to a successful performance in the World Cup, something he has so far been unable to do.
