Poland’s forward, Robert Lewandowski has revealed why his country lost to Teranga Lions of Senegal.
Lewandowski said they lost due to their slow pace and lack of communications on the field of play.
Speaking with reporters after the match, Lewandowski said, “We played with no tempo or pace, very little communication. This kind of play is not effective.”
The Terranga Lions coached by former captain, Aliou Cisse, produced an impressive performance to defeat Poland 2-1 on Monday.
They took the lead eight minutes before the break, through a Thiago Cionek own goal.
Mbaye Niang pounced on a bouncing ball to double Senegal’s lead in the 60th minute.
Grzegorz Krychowiak pulled one back for the Poles, but it was not enough to avoid defeat in their first game of the tournament.
