Barcelona forward Robert Lewandowski missed a penalty as his country Poland were held to a goalless draw by Mexico in a World Cup clash on Tuesday evening.
Poland had the best chance of winning the encounter but the forward missed the clear opportunity.
Lewandowski has never scored in the World Cup, and his wait continues after his effort was kept out by Mexico’s veteran goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.
