Russia vs Poland 1-1 (0-0)

The first impression is not always the right one, Russia vs Poland is there to prove it. So, when you would have bet on Skorovich guys thrashing Poland with no mercy through the illuminated direction of Robinho as usual... the game took a different way.

Polish sacrifice pays off
Surprisingly, once the Korczynski's (who featured in both halves a brand new corner kick including a short appearance of flying keeper Maciej Mizgajski) roster managed to escape from the first russian attempts also thanks to some great saves by Michal Kaluza (MAN OF THE MATCH according to Futsalplanet, Poland started to put their face in the russian part of the ground. And more: they were dangerous in more than one chance by team star Michal Kubik and above all with a couple of efforts by the interesting Mikolaj Zastawnik that forced Zamtaradze to an unexpected extra work.

Russian frustration
Eder Lima (who got close to the advantage thanks to his tipical and magical pivotal playing), Esquerdinha and mates obviously had their chances to score in the first part. Most danger was caused by russian new generation star Ivan Chishkala with two volley shots in few seconds: the Polish wall survived till the half time.

Chishkala, the savior
The second half followed the same story, but with five minutes left one more attempt by Gazprom's young talent finally succeeded. Looked like the word end of the Polish glorious game, but the best was yet to come.

Kubik, the hero
15,14,13,12,11,10. Seconds run fast and the final hooter is ready to register the russian win. Ask to Kubik, he will disagree. His air-to-ground missile while Poland was featuring the flyng keeper gives Zamtaradze no chance, red and white fans (attendance: 3192) get crazy! First surprise from Ljubljana, archived.
