WARSAW (Reuters) - A makeshift Poland fought out a 1-1 draw with visiting Russia in a Euro 2020 warmup on Tuesday after Vyacheslav Karavaev cancelled out Jakub Swierczok’s early opener for the home side.
Poland coach Paulo Sousa left out several regular starters including top scorer Robert Lewandowski, but his side got off to a flying start as Swierczok fired them ahead with his first international goal in the fourth minute.
The striker side-footed the ball past Russia goalkeeper Anton Shunin from eight metres after Przemyslaw Frankowski set him up from a deep pass by Mateusz Klich, delighting home fans in Wroclaw’s Miejski stadium.
The Russians were pegged back in the opening exchanges but drew level in the 20th minute as right back Karavaev tucked the ball past goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski at the far post after a superb Aleksandr Golovin cross.
