FOOTBALL: Robert Lewandowski in tears after scoring his first World Cup goal

The 34-year-old Barcelona strik­er has scored in emp­ty nets in all four of his World Cup appear­ances before Poland take on pow­er­hous­es Sau­di Arabia.

Poland’s first half was­n’t great for Lewandows­ki. He broke World Cup bood­ing by prompt­ing a boot change at halftime.

Lewandows­ki took advan­tage of a Sau­di defend­er’s mis­take to bring down the keep­er and com­plete Piotr Zielin­ski’s first-half goal.

Lewandows­ki was emo­tion­al, cry­ing and cel­e­brat­ing after being pestered by his teammate.

It was Lewandowski’s 77th goal for Poland and his 604th career goal.

Lewandows­ki was blocked by a crate before scor­ing, mak­ing the goal all the sweeter.

With a 2–0 vic­to­ry, Poland are top of Group C at the World Cup.

Poland are unde­feat­ed after two games after draw­ing with Mex­i­co in the group stage opener.

And Sat­ur­day’s 2–0 win put Poland on four points with a game against Argentina.

Argenti­na will face Mex­i­co on Sat­ur­day at 7pm and a loss would mean an ear­ly exit for Lionel Mes­si and his team.

Argenti­na, one of the favorites to win the title, was under pres­sure after los­ing 2–1 to Sau­di Arabia.
