Poland captain Jakub Blaszczykowski spanked home an absolute screamer to give the co-hosts a point against fierce rivals Russia last night!
Poland started well but it was Russia who took the lead when Alan Dzagoev flicked on an Andrey Arshavin free-kick.
The Polish gaffer's half-time team-talk must have been brilliant, because Poland were on fire in the second half! Blaszczykowski curled in a deserved equaliser on 57 minutes and, despite pressing for the winner, it ended 1-1.
