Poland avoids moral defeat before the European Cup


Poland ended its preparations for the European Cup, postponed from the summer of 2020, due to the Corona virus, with a last-gasp draw with its guest Iceland, 2-2, in a friendly meeting held in Poznan.Poland, tied 1-1 with Russia on Thursday, seemed on its way to losing at home after falling until the 88th minute with a goal by Piotr Zelensky (34) against two goals by Albert Gudmundsson (26) and Berker Bjarnason (47).

But Karol Svidersky, who entered in the 81st minute in place of the Bundesliga and Bayern Munich top scorer Robert Lewandowski, equalized two minutes before the end, to spare his country a moral defeat before the start of its European Cup campaign, which begins on Friday.

Poland will play in Group E, where they meet Slovakia next Monday in St. Petersburg, then Spain in Seville next Saturday, before concluding the first round in St. Petersburg against Sweden on the 23rd of this month.
