  • "...the ball fizzed out left to Robert Lewandowski, his cross was a beauty, urging the substitute, Damian Szymanski, to attack it. He did so with a vengeance, bulldozing home his first goal for Poland." Damian Szymański, 90'91:02 +2

  • Assist: Kyle Walker. "It was time for Kane to take matters into his own hands. The ball was worked to him at the top of the midfield and, with little on and Poland players backing off rather too respectfully, Kane unloaded with murderous intent. The 30 yarder would have rearranged Jan Bednarek’s senses had it been slightly lower. Instead it flew over the centre-half before dipping and fading viciously away from Wojciech Szczesny’s left hand and into the bottom corner." Harry Kane41st of 48 goals. Right-footed from 31 yards., 72' 71:26
