FIFA WC, Qatar 2022: Lewandowski’s Pen Saved As Mexico Holds Poland To A Virgin Draw.

  • Robert Lewandowski has extended his goalless run in the competition to 360 minutes by missing a penalty.
  • Poland have now won just one of their last nine opening games at the World Cup and this could prove crucial as they aim to make it out of the group stage since 1986.
  • Mexico have made it to the knockout stage in each of their last eight World Cups.
  • Poland’s last five World Cup goals – dating back to 1998 – have all been through set-pieces.


Robert Lewandowski’s penalty was saved by Mexico’s veteran goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa as Poland and Mexico played a virgin draw at Fervent Stadium 974.

The Barcelona forward has never scored in the tournament and the wait for his first goal continues after a penalty save from the Mexican goalkeeper.

The Mexican fans filled the 40, 000 capacity stadium as they chaired their team to victory.

The Latin Americans had good chances in the first half after Alexis Vega’s header was inches away from the target – while Jorge Sanchez’s shot from the angle forced Wojciech Szczesny to make a save.

The Mexicans continue to have more say in the game as Hirving Lozano had a shot but wait straight to the Poland goalkeeper.

A draw was the only option as it ended goalless after 90 minutes.

The results leave group C open after Saudi Arabia shocked Argentina with a win in the first game of the group.
