Robert Lewandowski has carried his club form at Borussia Dortmund over to international play. One of the most in-form strikers in the world has scored the opening goal of Euro 2012 in the 17th minute, putting the hosts ahead of Greece.
The Greeks' left side was always going to be a question mark, while Poland's right flank is the obvious strength of their team. Giorgos Samaras and Jose Holebas struggled against Jakub Blaszczykowski and Lucas Piszczek in the opening minutes, but Greece didn't make an adjustment. Eventually, one of the seemingly infinite number of crosses coming in from the right connected with a body.
Holebas and Samaras were skinned easily by a combination between Poland's two right-sided players, with Blaszczykowski putting in the cross. Lewandowski lost his defender and Greece's wildly inconsistent goalkeeper Kostas Chalkias made the poor decision to come off his line. He got burned for it as Lewandowski headed the ball past him easily, sending the National Stadium into raptures.
