Poland recorded their first win at the 2022 FIFA World Cup courtesy of a 2-0 victory against Saudi Arabia.
Piotr Zielinski gave Poland the lead in the 39th minute as he smashed home from close range.
Saudi Arabia missed the chance to equalise from the spot in first half stoppage time.
Wojciech Szczesny first denied Salem Al-Dawsari and then saved Mohammed Al-Burayk’s rebound.
In a frenetic second half, Poland hit the woodwork twice while Szczesny denied Al-Dawsari again from close range.
But Poland’s victory was sealed in the 82nd minute as Lewandowski capitalised on Abdulellah Al-Malki’s mistake to score for the first time in the competition in his fifth World Cup game.
