Head to Head
Robert Lewandowski – “We always had the game under control and played well, we upped the pace and created a lot of chances,” Lewandowski said as he reflected on the Group B clash.
“But we didn’t score enough goals. We always tried to get forward. Sometimes we might have made wrong decisions, but these are little things. In the end it was only three goals, but it could have been five or six.
“You need games like today to help with a good analysis, to see what you can do better. After the second goal, it got easier. I’m glad I scored again.”
