Lewandowski slams Poland after Senegal defeat

Against Poland that talent everyone always spoke about was on display as Niang tormented the Polish defence with his running play.

But they ensured a frantic finale when Grzegorz Krychowiak headed home a free-kick at the far post.

If Poland doesn't advance out of the group and Senegal does, the confusing play may turn out to be a critical moment in this World Cup.

Egypt, Morocco and Nigeria didn't get off the mark in losing their opening matches to Uruguay, Iran and Croatia, respectively.

But playing in their second World Cup, Senegal showed a passion and physicality that their seeded opponents could not handle.

The Aliu Cisse-led team gets three points.

We had predicted for big things from the big centre-back ahead of Senegal's campaign, he was one of the players everybody had a keen eye on.

But that will surely be of little concern to the skipper as his team hope to emulate the team of 2002, who reached the quarter-finals.

A team like the Rockets with a James Harden could be one, but until James makes a decision, it's all speculation for now. I was talking with my Dad when we mentioned the possibility of how Golden State can get better this off season.

Senegal took up a leading role in Group H with a resounding win over Poland.

At the beginning of the match, both teams kept the ball in the midfield, with none of the sides getting a shot off in the first five minutes. It also remains to be seen whether key defender Kamil Glik will recover in time to start. He was badly missed.

The midfielder's shot appeared to be going wide until the hapless Cionek stuck out a leg and deflected it past Szczęsny.

Those who watched the game were obviously shocked by Niang's appearance in the backfield because no one knew he was there. Africa is winning in Russian Federation and Senegal deserves all the accolades.

Niang had picked up a knock and gone to the sidelines for treatment, and the referee and fourth official allowed him to return to play just as Krychowiak tried to pass the ball back to his goalkeeper.

This is Poland's eighth World Cup apperance, with the team coming in third in 1974 and 1982. "We are here to take the trophy to Senegal", he said. They, ranked 27th according to Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings, stunned the eighth-ranked Poland 2-1.

"If you want to score at the World Cup then you need to play better".

Senegal is making its second World Cup apperance ever.

The first stanza was all Senegal, who were faster and physically stronger in the 50-50 contests, winning virtually everything in the air as well as the second balls.
