This was a terrible showing from Poland. They came out with a strong first 10 minutes, but they really could not solve Colombia's defense and set up any solid chances. They lacked a flow to their game and just did not have the sense of urgency they needed to be a real threat in this game. They ran out of gas early too - the 2nd Colombian goal by Falcao was him just running by the Polish defender. I don't think any Polish player stood out today and this is not a match that Polish players or fans will want to remember for long.

Set Pieces (Direct/Indirect)
Where was the Polish offense? With Milik being injured for this match, there was just not enough firepower in the Polish attack. Lewandowski is at his best with a good playmaker near him. There was simply no one to play that role. Their offense was anemic. Lewandowski had two good opportunities, but that was simply not enough.

Terrible job! There was just not enough punch in this lineup today and the substitutions did nothing in a must win game.
