Poland v England: Hart is not unbeatable, says Lewandowski
Poland v England: Borussia Dortmund's Robert Lewandowski insists that Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart is not "unbeatable"
Robert Lewandowski believes England’s Joe Hart is not “unbeatable” despite the Manchester City goalkeeper’s eye-catching display in the Champions League earlier this month.
The Poland striker will face the Citizens keeper again on Tuesday after Lewandowski failed to beat Hart in Borussia Dortmund’s 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium.
He dismissed the 25-year-old’s display insisting the Dortmund players were not clinical enough, and he is confident of scoring against Hart in their Group H World Cup qualifier in Warsaw.
“Hart had his day but no two games are ever the same,” he told the Daily Mail. “Just because he managed to do something in Manchester doesn’t mean he will be able to repeat it in Warsaw.
“To be honest, we Dortmund players helped him a little bit in Manchester – and so did the post and the crossbar! Besides, we scored one goal so it’s not like he is unbeatable or something. We can score past him.
“Maybe one goal like that will give Poland three points on Tuesday, and I hope to score it.”
Lewandowski was unimpressed by England’s performance at the European championship, and the Dortmund striker revealed Poland will be looking to take advantage of their defensive frailties.
“We know England have had some defensive problems and we might just be able to surprise them,” he added.
“They’re always going to be a difficult team but they didn’t play so good at Euro 2012 and maybe we can hit form on the right day.”
