Pepsi Arena, Warsaw
Poland 4-0 Andorra
A return to type for Andorra after their exploits against Azerbaijan the other day. As expected, Andorra were simply providing target practice for Poland ahead of their home Euro 2012 campaign, a fact borne out as Poland lead 3-0 by half-time. It could easily have been more, as Poland missed a few decent chances in addition to the ones they put away.
Ludovic Obraniak gave the hosts the lad in the 14thminute converting a Marcin Wasilewski cross from the left. Robert Lewandowski added a spectacular second with a bicycle kick in the 37th minute followed by Jakub Blaszczykowski converting a penalty before the break after Marc Bernaus had fouled him.
Things calmed down after the break as changes were made to both line-ups, but Andorra proved their own worst enemy again late on by conceding another penalty which Wasilewski put away.
Andorra will next see action in a friendy in Vaduz against Liechtenstein, a definite opportunity for more ranking points. But of course by then Andorra will no longer be a basement dweller of interest to us after their point against Azerbaijan recently.
