Poland win 5-4 on penalties

Euro 2016

Adam Nawalka’s Poland side created history by reaching their first continental quarter-finals. They survived nervous moments before finishing 1-1 in regular time and then overcoming Switzerland 5-4 via penalty shootout in the round of 16 of Euro 2016.

Jakub Blaszczykowski's strike in the 39th minute gave Poland the lead in what was another subdued performance from their talisman Robert Lewandowski. But the Poles made the mistake of sitting back and trying to protect the lead which was exploited by the Swiss eventually resulting in an equalizer. The equalizing goal from Xherdan Shaqiri is a definite contender for the goal of the tournament. The reverse overhead strike was enough to bring momentum to the Swiss as the match meandered into extra time.

 

But with no goals in extra time, the contest soon went into the first penalty shootout of Euro 2016. Granit Xhaka’s woeful penalty was the difference between two sides as Grzergorz Krychowiak converted the final penalty to take Poland to the last eight.

Player of the game

Lukasz Fabianski started the contest only because of an injury to the regular goalkeeper but he was the star for the Poles. He made a fantastic save from a Ricardo Rodriguez free kick late in the game which otherwise could have been a winning goal for the Swiss. He had not much to do in the penalty shootout – thanks to Xhaka – but Fabianski was the star of the day.
