After the victory of the Polish team over Wales 1-0 in Cardiff, the British press mainly mentions three names of the White-Reds who deprived the hosts of illusions – it was Karol Świderski, who scored the goal, and also the “assistant” who put the ball to “Świder” – Robert Lewandowski and undefeated by “Dragons” goalkeeper Wojciech Szczęsny.
“Wales 0-1 Poland: Dragons fall from the League of Nations in the career of the World Cup” – laments in the title “Evening Standard”. The London daily recalls that “Karol Świderski, just like he did when both teams met in Wrocław in June, came up with the winner of the second half, which sealed Wales’ relegation to league B”.
“Evening Standard” emphasizes that “Wales needed a victory in Cardiff to secure a place in the top division of European football and to push Poland into the second division. But Poland remained tough after Świderski’s goal, and Wales could not find a way, although Gareth Bale was closest when he hit the bar in extra time. “
The Welsh website “Y Clwb Pel Droed – The Football Club” points out that “Poland frustrated Wales by taking every opportunity to bring the matter to an end”, and adds that Poland resisted the Welsh pressure and finally won “. The website praised Szczęsny for several successful interventions, especially at the end of the meeting.
The Daily Mail announces in the lead: “Rob Page’s team is DELEGATED from the League of Nations top-tier as Karol Świderski scores the second-half winner in Cardiff with an excellent assist from Robert Lewandowski.” The newspaper emphasizes that “The guests had an advantage in the goalless but thoroughbred first half in Cardiff” and after the break, “The clever touch of Robert Lewandowski prompted Karol Świderski to a wise ending”.
