  • Spain were frustrated once again at Euro 2020 as they could only draw 1-1 with Poland in Seville

  • However, Robert Lewandowski bullied Spain out of two points after providing an equaliser in the 54th minute  
  • Spain had the chance to go ahead again, but Gerard Moreno missed a penalty and Morata hit the ball over the crossbar 

Spain struggled to get past a resilient Poland side as they were held to a 1-1 draw. 

Luis Enrique’s side began the match brightly, dominating possession but struggling to get past the Polish line of defence.

It was all smiles for Spain in the first half when Alvaro Morata scored his 20th international goal and celebrated with the coach who had defended him after he was whistled off by home supporters in Spain’s first game.

The goal had been set up by Gerard Moreno who Luis Enrique had picked to start alongside Morata and it was no surprise when the scorer ran straight to his coach to embrace him.

Poland rallied back into the match and in the second period Robert Lewandowski’s experience showed when he outthought and out-jumped Aymeric Laporte to nod in the equaliser from Kamil Jozwiak’s cross.

Moreno and Morata needed to deliver again but the former missed a penalty and the latter scuffed the rebound wide. Morata had the best of the late chances but was denied by Wojciech Szczesny from close range.
