Euro 2012 co-hosts Poland came from behind to win a crucial point in an exciting 1-1 draw against Russia in Warsaw on Tuesday.
Russia entered the game on the back of a 4-1 victory over the Czech Republic in their Euro 2012 opener and took the lead after 37 minutes through Alan Dzagoev.
Dzagoev – who scored twice against the Czechs – headed Andrey Arshavin’s free-kick past Polish goalkeeper Przemyslaw Tyton and into the back of the net.
Polish captain Jakub Blaszczykowski produced a stunning response, though, scoring a long-range left-footer from outside the box just 12 minutes into the second half.
Russia still top Group A with four points from two matches but the Czech Republic (three points), Poland (two points) and Greece (one point) are all within striking distance heading into the final match day.
