Spain rue missed chances as they play out another draw with Poland

There was plenty of action in both halves but in the end, there was nothing to separate the two teams in a 1-1 draw.

The Spaniards, who stuttered to a draw against Sweden in matchday one, fluffed their lines once again as they squandered a lead and dropped two points. 

For Poland, this game was an opportunity to correct their mistakes from their 2-1 loss to Slovakia.

Alvaro Morata provided the only real action of the first half, scoring from a tap-in in the 25th minute. After a short VAR check, the goal was deemed onside.

The second half was far more entertaining as Poland grabbed an equaliser through Robert Lewandowski in the 54th minute.

Spain had the opportunity to get back in front through a penalty won by Gerard Moreno after another VAR check in the 58th minute.

The man who won it stepped up to the spot. He hit his penalty well but it was too wide as the ball ricocheted off the post. Morata followed up the rebound but only managed to blast his shot wide, keeping the score at 1-1 in the process.

Spain had the most chances from then on to get the win. However, they didn't make the most of them and the game finished all-square.
