BUDAPEST, March 26 – Robert Lewandowski scored a powerful goal in the 83rd minute of the World Cup Group A qualifier at Puskas Arena, as Poland vied for a 3-3 draw with Hungary.
Hungary took the lead in the sixth minute when Roland Sly clung to Attila Viola’s pass, slammed a ball to the right and Wojciech Schosne was shot down the post.
The home side doubled their lead in the 53rd minute, when Adam Szalai returned to the net from the penalty area, and the Hungarians, led by Marco Rossi, controlled well in the face of the Polish team, who did not hit a shot on goal.
Polish coach Paulo Sousa made three substitutions in the 59th minute, and the two players presented by Krzysztof Petek and Kamel Juviak made an immediate impression.
Friday, after a low cross from Grzegorz Krychowiak, Peter Gulacsi confidently defeated the finish and a moment later the Hungarian defense fell, allowing Jóiwiak to drop into the penalty area and hit the ball into the net.
The Hungarians regrouped and regained their lead when Szalai crossed from the left flank and defender Willie Urban passed the ball to the back post.
But the dangerous Polish player, Lewandowski, the Bayern Munich striker, scored a point for his team by riding a scowl when Bartosz Berezinski found him in the penalty area and slammed the ball past Gulasi in the top corner.
Viola was sent to Hungary in overtime after receiving his second yellow card. Reuters
