Poland hold England 1-1

Sports Desk, Sep 8 (EFE).- Damian Szymanski kept Poland’s hopes of reaching World Cup 2022 alive Wednesday with a goal in stoppage time to secure a 1-1 draw with England after captain Harry Kane put the Three Lions ahead inside the last 20 minutes.

Despite the disappointing outcome in Warsaw, England remain the leaders in Group I on 16 points from six matches. Albania are second with 12 points, followed by Poland (11) and Hungary, who have 10 points.

England had 64 percent possession, yet the Poles ended with a 4-2 edge in shots on target.

Kane and Poland captain Robert Lewandowski each came close in the first half and England’s Harry Maguire hit the post in the 61st minute.

With 18 minutes left in regulation, Kane received a pass from Kyle Walker and scored with a magnificent strike from 30 yards out.

The visitors looked poised to see out the contest until Lewandowski provided the perfect set-up for late sub Szymanski to beat Jordan Pickford and steal a point for Poland. EFE apa/dr
