A great Krychowiak leads Poland's comeback

The Poles, led by a great Grzegorz Krychowiak, came back from the Balkans' initial goal with a penalty.


The Polish team managed to release their list of victories in the League of Nations, after winning 1-2 on Monday in their visit to Bosnia, in a match in which the Poles, led by a great Grzegorz Krychowiak, came back from the initial goal from the Balkans, from a penalty. And the fact is that the Bosnian team, despite leaving their great star on the bench, Roma forward Edin Dzeko, once again showed the same solid image that already allowed them to achieve a valuable draw last Friday (1- 1) against Italy in Florence.

In fact, it was Dzeko's replacement, the attacker Elvir Koljic who was in charge of provoking the penalty in the 22nd minute that allowed the Bosnian team to take the lead. A maximum penalty that, at first, went unnoticed by everyone, except for the Turkish referee Cüneyt Cakir who, perfectly placed, saw how the Polish defender Jan Bednarek prevented Koljic from finishing off a cross from the left of Amer Gojak with a grab . Penalty that midfielder Haris Hajradinovic did not miss to make it 1-0 at 24 minutes with a powerful shot that the Polish goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski could not stop. A goal that seemed to definitely wake up the Polish team, which until then had been excessively flat in their game.

Something that changed radically at the moment in which the Poles managed to find Kamil Jozwiak and Kamil Grosicki on the wings, who after 41 minutes was about to return the equalizer on the scoreboard. So much of the draw that Poland touched again in the following minutes in two shots from Jozwiak, who saw a defender miraculously send his shot to a corner, and from forward Arkadiusz Milik. But when Poland seemed to miss their scorer more, Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, who was given a break by the Polish coach in these first two days of the Nations League, the equalizer arrived.

A goal scored by center-back Kamil Glik, who had already enjoyed another great opportunity a few minutes before and who established the 1-1 with a powerful and precise header from a corner in the 45th minute. A tie that accentuated the dominance of Poland in the second half, in which the visitors continued to create danger with the wing actions of Jozwiak and Grosicki. Circumstance that forced Bosnian coach Dusan Bajevic to bring in his two most incisive players Edin Visca and Edin Dzeko, who replaced midfielder Muhamed Besic after 60 minutes. But the match was already in Poland, where the figure of former Sevilla player Grzegorz Krychowiak stood out, who gave a lesson in how to move a team.

A superiority that the Polish team finally managed to transfer to the scoreboard in the 67th minute with Kamil Grosicki's goal, who scored the 1-2 when he headed a cross from the left by Maciej Rybus. However, when everything seemed more favorable for the visitors, Polish coach Jerzy Brzeczek endeavored to give life to Bosnia by taking Krychowiak, until then the best of the game, from the field. An incomprehensible change that was close to costing the Polish team dearly, which saw Bosnia have an unbeatable opportunity in the 72nd minute in Elvir Koljic's boots to re-establish the equalizer. An opportunity that seemed to embolden the locals, who five minutes later had another chance to equalize in a shot by Edin Dzeko.

It was not the last scare for the Polish team, who saw five minutes to go before the end of regulation time, Edin Visca again touched the equalizer, with a failed shot that the Bosnian attacker failed to impale correctly. A draw that finally did not come, which allowed Poland, which fell 1-0 against the Netherlands on the first match, to add a victory that allowed them to escape from the last place of the group.
