In a rather drab affair that should be deleted from your DVR/Tivo, Poland held on for a 1-0 victory over Serbia on Wednesday. The match was their first of two friendlies during the international break.
Current Fiorentina and former Borussia Dortmund star Jakub Blaszczykowski grabbed the winner for Poland in the 28th minute. His well-placed volley came relatively against the run of play, with Serbia holding the better opportunities to score in the first half.
As per usual in these friendlies, the vast substitutions in the second half make it difficult to glean anything from them. The positive result, however, means that Poland have now only lost one of their last sixteen matches.
Robert Lewandowski's match was uneventful, registering only one shot in the contest.
On Saturday March 26, Poland will host Finland at the Stadion Miejski in Wroclaw.
