Blaszczykowski's strike earns Poland draw
Jakub Blaszczykowski's brilliant strike earned Poland a 1-1 draw against Russia in Group A after Alan Dzagoev had put his side in front with a headed goal.
The result leaves all four teams with a chance to make the quarterfinals.
Poland had some good chances in the first half but went 1-0 down when Dzagoev netted his third goal of the tournament, directing Andrey Arshavin's free kick beyond Przemyslaw Tyton.
While Russia asked some questions of Poland, the home side really sparked to life in the second half.
It was skipper Blaszczykowski who levelled with a stunning left-footed drive, although he was allowed to much space to cut inside from the right flank.
Russia almost had an early goal when Ludovic Obraniak’s set piece found Sebastian Boenisch, but he was denied by Vyacheslav Malafeev whose legs got in the way.
Then Robert Lewandowski looked to add to his Euro 2012 tally when he took the ball down before unleashing a volley toward goal that was narrowly off-target.
Then Eugen Polanski finished a beautiful flowing move from the co-hosts only for him to turn around and see that he was offside.
Poland got stronger as the game went on and the stadium atmosphere intensified as the home side began to sense a chance.
Then Russian goalkeeper Malafeev was called upon yet again as Poland searched for a second goal; the 'keeper did well to deny Polanski's low shot.
The result leaves Russia at the summit of Group A with four points, whilst the co-hosts lye third with two after Czech Republic defeated Greece earlier in the night.
Poland will need to win their final game to progress, something they have never done in a major tournament.
What Russia need is a point against Greece to secure a quarterfinal berth.
