Neither Mexico nor Poland succeeded in finding the back of each other’s nets as their maiden Group C clash this Tuesday night at Stadium 974 ends in a goalless draw.
‘El Tri’, who had the possession of the ball for the most time (61%), had 4 out of 11 shots on target, with a header from Alexis Vega going wide in the first half.
A strike from Jesus Gallardo, however, nearly scored for Gerardo Martino’s side but it was a remarkable effort from the Polish keeper Wojciech Szczesny to keep the ball out.
In the second half, stalwart forward Robert Lewandowski had the perfect chance to put his team into the lead as well as score his maiden World Cup goal, but ‘The White and Red’s skipper missed the penalty after Guillermo Ochoa dived to his left to deny the goal.
The remainder of the match, including the 7 minute added injury time, went pretty action less as the final whistle marked the second goalless draw of the day, with both Mexico and Poland taking home a point each.
