Luckily for the Poles, Wojciech Szczęsny detained the collection of Salem To the-Dawsari in a double cut across that completed diverting the finish back of To the Burayk. The performance of the guardameta of the Juventus was fundamental to keep the zero and Robert already thinks in the 'final' in front of Argentina the Wednesday. "I expect that before the party against Argentina keep the feet in the floor and give the best of us", puntualizó the '9'.
