Robert Lewandowski speaks out after costly penalty miss

Robert Lewandowski says he is hoping to move on from his penalty miss that cost Poland victory over Mexico in their World Cup opener on Tuesday.

Poland and Mexico played at a goalless draw at the Stadium 974 in Qatar, with both sides struggling to generate many meaningful chances.

The European side’s best chance came early in the second-half, when captain Lewandowski won a penalty but failed to convert from the spot, with veteran keeper Guillermo Ochoa denying him with a good save.

It means that the Barcelona star is still yet to score at a World Cup finals, despite being widely-regarded as one of the best strikers in the game right now.

The performance of the entire Poland team was criticised following the game, especially for their inability to get the best out of star players like Lewandowski.

Speaking to goal.pl, the 34-year-old said: ‘It was just the decision to shoot hard on the ground.

‘I missed and it hurts for sure, but we look at this draw with faith and optimism before the next meeting. It will be up to us how this meeting will go.
