Lewandowski strikes as Poland beat Latvia for second Euro qualifying win

Poland made it two wins out of two at the start of their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign after second-half goals by Robert Lewandowski and Kamil Glik gave them a 2-0 home win over Latvia in Group G on Sunday.

Poland, who beat Austria 1-0 away in their opening match, lead the way with six points from two games. Israel and North Macedonia have four each in the group and Slovenia have two while Austria and Latvia are pointless.

Lewandowski hit the post with a deft shot in the first half and missed three other chances as Latvia keeper Pavels Steinbors pulled off a string of superb saves before he was finally undone by a pair of headers.

Left back Arkadiusz Reca produced a fine run and cross for Lewandowski to break the deadlock with a thumping header from six metres in the 76th minute before Glik netted with almost a carbon copy in the 84th.

Kamil Grosicki had twice come close for the home side while Vladislavs Gutkovskis also had two chances at the other end, failing to capitalise on rare forays by the Latvians.
