"We can play 90 minutes like we played the first half against Greece," Blaszczykowski told reporters. "We now have one point and we still have the chance to qualify for the next round.

"But one thing I must underline - if we had won on Friday we would not have been in the next round, and it is the same if we had lost; we would not have been out of this tournament."
Franciszek Smuda's side will face group leaders Russia in their next game and the Borussia Dortmund man believes that it will prove to be the most important game in Group A.
