Poland put six past distorted Armenia to move up close for the World cup next year
Lewandoski breaks record and claimed the third hat-trick of Qualifying campaign to help Poland one step closer to Russia. The Polish striker now is the all time top scorer for his nation with 49 goals breaking the record of the legendary center forward Wlodzimierz Lubanski. That made Poland climb upto 22 points, one place ahead of Montenegro who are scheduled to play Denmark later.
Bayern Munich’s forward triple was matched by strikes from Grosicki, Blaszczykowski and Rafael Wolski helped Pols to dream of yet another major competition entrance after the Euros in 2016.
Armenia again suffered defeat in their home ground crushing every hopes at least to upset the away team. They did not withstand Poland’s attacking prowess which enlarged the flares of critics of their poor qualifying performance each term. This was the joint heaviest defeat for the Armenian time since their foundation at home.
At Varzgen, Pols attacked with might. It took only two minutes for them to drew the first blood. Borussia Dortmund’s full back Lukasz Piszczek was absolutely phenomenal tonight and he contributed to the opener of the game. His pace easily cracked open the defense allowing Grosicki to tug in before Lewandowski beyond the reach of opposition keeper Melikselitiyan.
The Armenian keeper was put into action was again when a superbly taken free kick from the man of the match went beyond his reach. Lewandowski equalled the record with this sweet effort.
The third one of the night clearly indicated that Armenia were not willing to test their calibre. Grosicki threatened again to score when shift in concentration fled a back pass to the Armenian keeper. The referee answered to Poland’s appeal and handed them an indirect kick from the box. Robert pounced once again to make history overtaking Pulaski’s 48 goals record.
Armenian fans were clearly dissatisfied with their team’s display on the pitch as they stopped singing some instance. However, they managed to end the half strongly. Henrick Mkhitariyan’s corner was met by the strong head of Hambarstuyman who rosed high than everyone beating his marker Kamil Glik, in the first attempt on goal for the home side.
Second half brought out a nervy show for the Armenian players because the Polish army clashed with more power this time. Melikselitiyan was having a tough time between the three sticks and his problem multiplied when he allowed Blaszczykowski’s weak attempt on goal to slid past his pairs of gloves in a weaken effort to hold it. The scorer celebrated his first in the qualifying campaign.
More to follow as Armenia never ever managed to turn the wheels to their path. The Lech Poznan academy graduate finally completed his hat-trick in the 64th minute through sharp work from Brizyuski on the left flank. His driving pass inside the area went away from sliding Grosicki but no missing from point blank range from Lewandowski who cooly converted the sitter to go ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo in this campaign’s scoring table.
Last of all, to wrap up the win and end Armenia’s horror ninety minutes play Rafael Wolsky blasted home the sixth in only his second start to the qualifying campaign. Poland would have made the scoreline look more ruthless but that would had been harsh on the disheartened Armenian side, now out of contention.
