Mexico and Poland did not score on Tuesday in their first group match at the World Cup in Qatar. Although the best chances were for the Mexicans, Poland was closest to a hit. Captain Robert Lewandowski missed a penalty in the 58th minute, awarded after a foul by Héctor Moreno on the FC Barcelona striker.
In Mexico, Ajax players Jorge Sánchez and Edson Álvarez had a basic place, Poland took part in the 974 stadium of Doha with Feyenoord player Sebastian Szymanski. In the other game in group C, Saudi Arabia had caused a stunt earlier in the day by understanding Argentina 2-1.
Former PSV player Hirving Lozano was the most striking man in Mexico. The current attacker of Napoli already served Alexis Vega in the 5th minute with a tight cross, but he couldn’t get the ball under control. With a header from Vega just wide, Mexico was the closest to a goal before the break.
The penalty kick with which Lewandowski should have given his country the lead came after intervention by the VAR. It was a risky action by Moreno, a former AZ and PSV player, but the sanction was heavy. Goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa stopped the poorly shot ball.
Feyenoord player Szymanski was substituted in the 72nd minute. Former Ajax player Arkadiusz Milik, who came in for Poland in the final phase, was also unable to make the difference.
