Lewandowski's search for first WC goal continues

Lewandowski's World Cup drought continues after missing spot kick vs Mexico

November 22, 2022 By Oscar Rojas
The Polish ace was denied by goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, who once again delivered for El Tri when they needed him the most.

He may be one of the greatest strikers in the world, but scoring goals in FIFA World Cup matches is not his thing...at least until now.

Robert Lewandowski extended his goalscoring drought in FIFA World Cup matches today, as Mexico's goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa denied him one more time in the goalless draw between Poland and El Tri.

"Lewa" failed to beat a goalkeeper that had seen 31 consecutive penalties being scored against him, but today, the Mexican shot-stopper proved how great he can be when he is under Mexico's sticks in a World Cup clash.

The real problem for Lewandowski is that he has not been able to find the back of the net in four straight FIFA World Cup games for Poland, complicating his team's chances and forcing them to search for answers that have not appeared. His poor form saw Poland missing out on the Round of 16 four years ago, and it has certainly started off on the wrong foot for the Orly in this World Cup.

Lewandowski joined a woeful list of Polish players to miss a penalty kick during regulation, which began with Deyna in 1978 and continued with Maciej Zurawski in 2002. To make matters worse, the Polish striker is about to become the player with the most shots taken without scoring a World Cup goal.
