The Poland team had a happy moment when it topped Group C. Saudi Arabia had 64% possession, and Poland had 36%. Pass accuracy was better for the Saudi Arabia team, but still, there was no luck till full-time. Poland had more fouls than Saudi Arabia and got three yellow cards. At the end of the first half, Poland was already leading with one goal against zero from Saudi Arabia. After 39 minutes had passed in the first half, Poland scored its first goal, followed by a penalty for Saudi Arabia.
It was a hard-fought match, but fans of Saudi Arabia expected more from the team. Sadly, SA team members were not in their best form due to many injuries in the past few days. Poland was in a jolly mood to kick things off for its countrymen and get the top position in Group C.
