Mexico and Poland Both missed the opportunity to take advantage of Argentina’s surprise defeat to Saudi Arabia as their first World Cup 2022 Group C match ended in a draw.
Gerardo Martino’s men were the dominant team and had a better chance overall. However, Poland could have snuck victory but the most feared forward, Robert Lewandowski, missed a second-half penalty.
The Barcelona forward was awarded the penalty after a fight against Hector Moreno in the box that led to a VAR review. However, his spot-kick was saved by experienced Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo “Memo” Ochoa, the only player and the fourth Mexican who has played in 5 World Cups.
Lewandowski has yet to score in the World Cup, but in truth, Poland didn’t do enough to earn the win, opting instead for a strategy of limitation.
Mexico experienced first-half opportunities through Alexis Vega’s goal and the dangerous Jesus Gallardo. At the same time, Poland goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny could fend off a shot from Henry Martin after the break.
El Tri will move on to take on Argentina after being beaten by Saudi Arabia earlier on Saturday. Poland is next to face the Green Falcons.
