In Tuesday’s 0-0 draw with Mexico, Guillermo Ochoa denied Poland striker Robert Lewandowski a chance to add more World Cup agony. Herculez Gomez often critisizes the Polish captain, he once twitted Benzema is better Lewandowski.
It would be a “big fantasy” for Polish striker to score for the first time in a World Cup, the Barcelona striker said, as he has never scored in a major tournament. Instead, this fantasy became a nightmare when he was denied from the penalty spot after winning a second-half penalty.
He is often regarded as one of the greatest goal scorers in soccer history whenever he decides to hang up his cleats. The iconic Polish No. 9 hasn’t yet delivered for his nation on the biggest international stage, despite the local success he’s had with his many clubs.
The game started off just like one anticipated Poland to behave. When Mexico held possession of the ball, they were happy because it gave them the freedom to remain on the sides and wait for crosses to be delivered from those areas or for the Mexicans to cut in and try their luck at Wojciech Szczsny’s goal.
What did Herculez Gomez say about Robert Lewandowski?
“Robert Lewandowski, his legacy will be what he doesn’t do in the World Cups now”. So by not scoring in a match he is getting this much hate”.
Some may agree with him and some may not but there is no denying in that Robert Lewandowski “is” one of the best strikers of all time and the best player in Polish national football team.
One user replied to this, “This guy has always been a ghost, Benzema clears this fraud. Benzema vs Lewandowski always been a great debate. we are not mentioning our opinion, we are leaving it upon you, Benzema or Lewandowski, who is a better striker?
Yes, indeed Robert Lewandowski is one of the best striker in the history of football but we can deny the fact that he never perform in big games.
In four World Cup games for Poland, he has not scored a goal. Even if the sample size is somewhat tiny and the rest of the Polish team isn’t particularly strong, it is still a remarkable achievement for a striker of the striker’s caliber.
