Robert Lewandowski slams Poland team mates after Senegal defeat

Senegal claim first African win at 2018 World Cup

Senegal claim first African win at 2018 World Cup

Thiago Cionek's own goal, the defender deflecting in a shot from Idrissa Gueye, handed Senegal the lead in the 37th minute.

Poland midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak played the ball back from inside the Senegal half but the defence failed to notice that M'Baye Niang, who had been on the touchline receiving treatment, had re-entered the field. Robert Lewandowski, who scored 16 goals in qualifying, was left isolated up front, starved of service.

The Juventus keeper said: 'It was weird because our player who played the ball didn't see their player had come back on to the pitch and played it short. Poland must get more out of their main man against Colombia on Sunday.

Their two goals may have been fortunate but Senegal were worthy winners of an entertaining encounter.

The Teranga Lions got Africa's first points of this summer's tournament on the board, and will take encouragement from a display that showcased their speed, directness, physicality and offensive cohesion. Providing Senegal have a slice of luck, Mane could be one of the stars of the tournament. Kamil Glik was on the bench. Poland returned for the first time since 2006. Will Sadio Mane step up for Senegal?!

Krychowiak put Poland in trouble with a woeful bouncing back pass, but Szczesny opted rashly to charge out of his penalty area. Poland have showed impressive performance this year since 1-0 defeat against Nigeria in March, as they registered victories over South Korea (3-2) and Lithuania (4-0), and a draw against Chile by 2-2. It is disappointing, but every game is different and Colombia are a team that plays open football and we can hurt them on the counter-attack. He tries to pass the ball back to Szczesny from near enough the half-way line but he doesn't get enough on it!

As Niang scurried towards the high-bouncing pass, Szczesny chose to come charging out to meet him but was beaten to the ball and was photographed looking hilariously out of position as Niang tapped home into an empty net. That's when you need your best players to produce small moments to edge the contest, and Mane subtly stepped up.

Krychowiak would get one back with a header in the 86th minute but, as Nawalka would admit after the game, it was not almost enough on a bad day at the office for the European side.

Poland are the group's highest-ranked side at number eight, but they struggled to create further chances with a free-kick from captain Robert Lewandowski one of just four shots on target. It's going to count!
