At a boisterous Stadium 974, Poland and Mexico played to a goalless World Cup draw. Robert Lewandowski had a penalty saved.
The tournament’s captain Lewandowski is still without a goal after a meek attempt was sent away by veteran Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.
The 40,000-seat stadium was mostly packed with boisterous Mexico fans, and when Lewandowski’s attempt missed, the crowd erupted in thunderous cheers.
In a boring first half, Jorge Sanchez’s angle shot was deflected by Wojciech Szczesny and Alexis Vega’s header just missed the target.
Before the match really picked up in the second half, Hirving Lozano’s long-range shot went straight at the Poland goalie.
But after Ochoa, 37, dived correctly to block Barcelona striker Lewandowski’s penalty, which was given after the referee watched a video on the pitchside monitor, both teams were forced to settle for a draw.
In Group C earlier in the day, Saudi Arabia upset Argentina by coming from behind to win in one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history.
