Suara.com – Poland striker Robert Lewandowski admits it is difficult to accept that his side have been eliminated from the group stage at Euro 2020 following Wednesday’s dramatic 3-2 loss to Sweden.
Needing a win to reach the last 16, Poland came from two goals down to equalize when Lewandowski scored twice in the Group E clash in Saint Petersburg.
But Viktor Claesson’s winner in the 94th minute extinguished Poland’s hopes and sent Paulo Sousa’s side out of the group stage. The country has experienced the same fate at the 2018 World Cup.
“Of course it hurts. Getting out of this tournament is a big loss for us. It will be difficult to accept,” said Lewandowski.

“You can’t say we don’t have fighting spirit, ambition or determination. But something was missing, the ability to win this game to keep playing.
“But congratulations to the players for trying hard and continuing to fight. It’s not enough,” said the 32-year-old.
