Russia 2018: Lewandowski Crashes Out With Poland
Robert Lewandowski and his Polish teammates have crashed out of the ongoing World Cup in Russia after they were roundly beaten 3-0 by Colombia on Sunday night in Kazan in their second group game.
Lewandowski was one of the revered strikers before the World Cup and many tipped the Bayern Munich forward to favorably compete for the highest goal scorers award.
However, goals from Radamel Falcao, Juan Cuadrado and Yerry Mina earned Colombia a deserved 3-0 win over Poland to keep Group H wide open at the World Cup but effectively end the hopes of the Poles.
Mina headed home from a well-worked corner routine in the first half before Falcao struck a clinical finish after the break to ensure Colombia's World Cup lasts until at least the final group-stage game.
The result means Poland - who failed to get star man Lewandowski into the game - are heading home after just two games, having initially tipped as one of the tournament's potential dark horses.
Poland will be up against Japan in their final group game while Colombia and Senegal will do battle in the other tie.
