Lewandowski fears repeat of Hart's Champions League heroics

Though the England No.1 has come under criticism of late, the Poland striker recalls being repeatedly frustrated by him when Borussia Dortmund faced Manchester City last season
Robert Lewandowski fears a repeat of "one of the best goalkeeping displays" that he has seen from Joe Hart when Poland face England.

The 25-year-old went head-to-head with the Three Lions' No.1 when Borussia Dortmund faced Manchester City in last season's Champions League, when the Germans dominated but could only secure a 1-1 away draw after a marquee display from the keeper, who produced several world-class saves.

The two will once again do battle when England host Poland at Wembley in their final World Cup qualifier, though this time Hart comes into the game under criticism for a series of mistakes.

"Maybe Hart has made one or two errors but all I can talk about is my personal experience of playing against him," Lewandowski told the Sunday People.

"When Dortmund played in Manchester last season in Europe, he produced one of the best goalkeeping displays I have seen. We only got a draw but we would have scored four or five if it hadn't been for him. If he plays like that again then he will be very hard to beat."

England head into the match with Poland knowing that only a win would guarantee their spot at the top of the group and an automatic place at the World Cup.

If Roy Hodgson's side fail to take maximum haul, they are likely to be overhauled by Ukraine, who face minnows San Marino. The Poles, however, are unable to make it to Brazil after falling to a 1-0 defeat to Ukraine on Friday.
