Poland Sunday evening defeated Northern Ireland 1-0 to temporarily go top of Group C in the UEFA Euro 2016 ahead of Germany’s clash against Ukraine.
Arkadiusz Milik scored a 61st minute goal when he latched on to a precise through ball from Jakub Blaszczykowski before unleashing an unstoppable shot into the bottom right corner from the edge of the area.
Poland had some decent chances in the first half but could not convert them with Northern Ireland forced to play defensively and hope to get the chance to hit the Poles on the counter for most parts of the game.
Bartosz Kapustka received a low pass just outside the box and unleashed a fine strike towards the left post while Arkadiusz Milik met a cross in the box and finds some space for a shot. He produced an inaccurate effort that goes wide of the left post.
Grzegorz Krychowiak spotted the Ireland goalkeeper is off his line towards the end of the game, but his long-range effort with three minutes to go flew just a few inches wide of the right post.
