BÅ‚aszczykowski shoots Poland past Ukraine

BÅ‚aszczykowski shoots Poland past Ukraine

Marseille, Jun 22 (IBNS): Half-time substitute Jakub BÅ‚aszczykowski struck the decisive blow as Poland confirmed their participation in the knockout stage and ensured Ukraine will travel home from UEFA EURO 2016 without a point or a goal to their name.

Ukraine were building on their first-half superiority when the midfielder, initially rested for the Red and Whites' last Group C encounter, received a reverse pass from Arkadiusz Milik, cut on to his left foot and bent a shot past Andriy Pyatov.

Pyatov had stood tall to thwart Milik inside three minutes, less than 60 seconds before the unmarked Robert Lewandowski lifted an inviting cross from his strike partner over the bar.

Mykhailo Fomenko's team, anything but submissive in their EURO swansong, then took control. They bossed possession, threatened down each flank and spurned a golden opportunity of their own when Andriy Yarmolenko, sent clear by Ruslan Rotan, scooped wide of the far post.

Olexandr Zinchenko, the smallest player on the pitch, headed over as Ukraine picked up where they left off after the restart. BÅ‚aszczykowski's introduction tilted the contest Poland's way.

The Borussia Dortmund man conjured his 17th goal for Poland, who preserved their record of never having lost when he has scored. More importantly, it takes the nation through to the knockout stages for the first time.

Man of the match: Ruslan Rotan (Ukraine)
