Polish side got battered by a rejuvenated Colombian side which started flying again under their influential golden boy James Rodriguez who had a 10/10 performance. Robert Lewandowski was certainly poor in this World Cup, who was fed scraps from his Polish teammates. But we have to give credit to him for staying on the pitch after the game, shook everyone’s hand and waited for all his teammates to leave the pitch before he did so himself. It was indeed very classy from the Polish captain, who was so gracious in defeat.
Lewandowski is getting criticized heavily in twitter but that’s so cruel as Poland’s struggles are not to be blamed solely on Lewandowski. Even if you put any striker in the world in his position – CR7, Kane, Costa, Suarez, etc. they would all struggle just as much as Lewandowski in this Polish side but still expected a bit more intensity and endeavor from their captain.
Gary Neville spot on about Poland. “Start the tournament in a back 4 and then in the next game they go to a back 5 and change 4 players, so you know all that planning has gone out the window.”
