Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    <strong>Alex O'Henley, National Stadium Warsaw:</strong> A well deserved point for Poland which keeps alive their dreams of reaching the knockout stage. It was no more than they deserved. They showed a lot of character to come back having fallen behind to Alan Dzagoev's first-half goal and what can you say about Jakub Blaszczykowski's equaliser? Sensational. It was a riveting game and Group A will go to the final game before we know who progresses.
  • 90+3
    Mierzejewski (Poland) takes the free-kick.

    The foul is conceded on the right flank mid-way into the Russian half. An excellent position to put the ball into the box. Is this the last throw of the dice?
  • 90
    Denisov (Russia) takes the free-kick.
  • 90
    Lewandowski (Poland) is penalised for a foul on Anyukov (Russia).
  • Substitution

    Obraniak (Poland) has an effort on goal.
    Poland are looking very dangerous on the break at the moment, and hit again, this time Robert Lewandowski held the ball up before laying out to the left where a low strike forced Vyacheslav Malafeev into a low save.
  • 80
    Ignashevich (Russia) takes the free-kick.
  • Substitution

  • 77
    Boenisch (Poland) misses the target.
    The full-back sent a wild effort off target a few minutes ago but goes a lot closer this time, cutting in from the left and curling just over the bar. Poland continue to crank up the pressure. Will the breakthrough come?
  • 76
    Ignashevich (Russia) blocks a shot.
  • 76
    Lewandowski (Poland) has an effort on goal.
    The forward tries an effort from 25 metres but Sergei Ignashevich puts in a good block to save his goalkeeper some work.

  • 69
    Malafeev (Russia) makes a save.
  • 69
    Polanski (Poland) has an effort on goal.
    Poland have success down the right again as they pile on the pressure. It is worked into the box and the midfielder drives as goal from a tight angle, but the excellent Vyacheslav Malafeev stays strong once again.
  • 68
    Tytoń (Poland) makes a save.
  • 68
    Dzagoev (Russia) has an effort on goal.
    The scorer of the Russian goal almost gets another. With only Przemysław Tytoń to beat, he does not quite catch his shot cleanly and the goalkeeper stretches to save low to his right.
  • 67
    Zhirkov (Russia) takes the corner.
  • 65
    Murawski (Poland) misses the target.

  • Goal
    57
    Błaszczykowski (Poland) scores!
    A remarkable strike levels it for Poland! A rapid break down the right allows the Borussia Dortmund midfielder to cut inside Yuri Zhirkov, level with the edge of the area, and unleash a rocket from his left foot into the far corner. Unstoppable!
  • 56
    Ignashevich (Russia) blocks a shot.
  • 56
    Piszczek (Poland) has an effort on goal.
  • 54
    Malafeev (Russia) takes the free-kick.

  • 50

  • 50
    Lewandowski (Poland) has an effort on goal.
    The bravery of Vyacheslav Malafeev denies Poland this time. Ludovic Obraniak's chipped cross from the right seems destined to be volleyed in by the Borussia Dortmund forward, who is completely open, but the goalkeeper flies out of his goal to block the chance.
  • 49
    Obraniak (Poland) takes the free-kick.
  • 49
    Arshavin (Russia) is penalised for a foul on Perquis (Poland).

  • 47
    Obraniak (Poland) takes the corner.
  • 47
    Obraniak (Poland) takes the corner.
  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
    <strong>Alex O'Henley, National Stadium Warsaw:</strong> We are under way again with no changes for either side. Hopefully we will have as entertaining a second half as a first.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    <strong>Alex O'Henley, National Stadium Warsaw:</strong> Russia lead 1-0 at half-time thanks to that goal from Alan Dzagoev. Poland certainly had the best of the opening 45 minutes but they will be disappointed about the ease with which the PFC CSKA Moskva midfielder nipped in front of his marker to head home. Now Francisek Smuda has to decide, does he stick with this cautious formation or change to a more adventurous approach in the second half?
  • 45+1
    Tytoń (Poland) takes the free-kick.
  • 45
    Dzagoev (Russia) is penalised for a foul on Dudka (Poland).

    Wasilewski (Poland) takes the free-kick.
  • 41
    Denisov (Russia) is penalised for a foul on Polanski (Poland).

  • 39
    Malafeev (Russia) makes a save.
  • 39
    Błaszczykowski (Poland) has an effort on goal.
    Poland respond immediately. More neat work around the Russia area and the captain finds space before drilling right-footed towards the top corner. Vyacheslav Malafeev is alert to the danger and leaps to his left to claw the ball away.
  • Goal
    37
    Dzagoev (Russia) scores!
    He got two against the Czech Republic and now he has put Russia ahead against Poland. A free-kick is curled in right-footed from the left and the PFC CSKA Moskva man times his run perfectly to flick his header past a helpless Przemysław Tytoń.
  • 37
    Arshavin (Russia) takes the free-kick.
  • 36
    Wasilewski (Poland) is penalised for a foul on Zhirkov (Russia).

    Wasilewski (Poland) has an effort on goal.
    Another free-kick into the Russian box is met by a Polish head rather than a Russian one. The effort is too central to worry Vyacheslav Malafeev who catches under minimal pressure.

    Obraniak (Poland) takes the free-kick.
  • 25
    Denisov (Russia) is penalised for a foul on Lewandowski (Poland).

  • 21
    Obraniak (Poland) takes the corner.
  • 19
    Kerzhakov (Russia) misses the target.

    Lewandowski (Poland) misses the target.
    So close to putting Poland ahead. The scorer of Poland's goal on Friday controls a knock-down on his knee before volleying powerfully at goal from outside the area - the ball whistling just over the bar.
