Poland refused to give up their play-off hopes in FIFA World Cup qualifying Group H as Piotr Zieliński scored twice to help them ease to a win in San Marino.

The No10 opened the scoring after ten minutes before a shock equaliser from Alessandro Della Valle, the hosts' first goal in this qualifying campaign. Jakub Błaszczykowski and Waldemar Sobota restored and then secured the advantage before the interval and Zieliński and Adrian Mierzejewski finished off the scoring after the break to leave Waldemar Fornalik's side three points off leaders England and two behind Montenegro and Ukraine.
