Slovenia end Poland’s perfect Euro qualifying run
Slovenia ended Poland’s 100% record in the Euro 2020 qualifiers when goals from Aljaz Struna and Andraz Sporar gave them a shock 2-0 win over the Group G leaders on Friday.
Poland had not even conceded a goal in the section heading into the game but their defensive wall was finally breached in the 35th minute, just as they seemed to be taking control.
Sporar flicked on Josip Ilicic’s corner and Struna stuck out a leg at the far post to divert the ball past Lukasz Fabianski.
The Poland keeper did well shortly afterwards to turn away Benjamin Verbic’s back-flick as Slovenia, who had won only one of their previous 12 competitive games, continued to press.
