A brilliant start from both sides led to a cascade of Polish attacks after visiting defender Anel Ahmedhodžić decided to block Robert Lewandowski when he cleared the goal after 15 minutes had passed.

Lewandowski squandered an excellent chance under little pressure, hitting the post with a curling effort for the first time from the edge of the penalty area and then placed in the opener after a smooth interaction. The captain then secured a close-range header from Karol Linetty just before halftime and sealed the win with a cold-blooded volley from Mateusz Klich's delicate left wing diagonal.

This was a good run for Poland after an impressive 5-1 win over Finland in a friendly and good draw against Italy with a convincing win. Lewandowski has proven to be among the best in the world, but players like Klich and Linetty are the big winners of the last few games. Young people like Sebastian Walukiewicz and Jakub Moder also showed their talents, giving Polish fans optimism.

Visitors tonight lacked power, focus, and the right transition. Even with one less man, they lost battles in the midfield, underperforming and looking visibly tired after two tough matches, compounded by injury issues. Poland, led by Lewandowski, was very strong and Bosniaks should now look to the next matches in the UEFA Nations League campaign.
