Saudi Arabia had a chance to equalize late in the first half, after Krystian Bielik was ruled to have tripped Saleh Al Shehri inside the box.
But the Juventus goalkeeper saved Salem Al-Dawsari’s shot, before deflecting Mohammed Al Burayk’s rebound over the bar to keep his team in the lead.
Poland did not receive another penalty after Lewandowski’s miss against Mexico, but head coach Czeslaw Michniewicz backed his star man to step up again if he was given one. “When it comes to penalties, Robert is still number one,” he said. “As a striker, of course, he will make the decision to shoot or pass it to someone else. He feels ready to score for Poland”.
