Poland blown to hell by Red Devils
The Red Devils put six goals past Poland with Robert Lewandowski having a consolation goal for Poland in their UEFA Nations League (UNL) encounter.
It was a tense start to the match as Poland kicked off. Belgium were on the front foot as Michy Batshuayi found the net only for his goal to be ruled for offside by the linesman. The Devils picked up the tempo from that early chance and began to control proceedings. Kevin de Bruyne and Edin Hazard created a couple of chances but were not fruitful. Poland sitting on the edge defending probing attacks from Belgium.
Poland was first to see the back of the net when Robert Lewandowski created some space inside the area after getting on the end of Sebastian Szymanski’s pass to send the ball into the bottom left corner past Simon Mignolet. 1-0. The Devils were not left behind as they got their equalizer three minutes to the break as Alex Witsel fired an unstoppable shot inside the right post.
The Belgians were brutal in the second half as Kevin de Bruyne gave his side the lead on the hour mark. All hell broke loose as they went on a scoring spree when Leandro Trossard scored a brace in seven minutes to make it 4-1. Poland was crumbling.
Leander Dendoncker made it five with his long range effort to beat Bartlomiej Dragowski. And the cherry on top was added by Lois Openda to make it six after dinking the keeper in added time.
Belgium won 6-1.
It was their first meeting with Poland in 15 years thrashing them on their way to victory.
