Couple of firm saves in the first half to deny Poles in an improved performance for the national side after his recent blunder against Greece.
T. Gebre Selassie
Very strong performance from one of the best players in Bilek's team as he caused trouble all night for Boenisch with his runs down the right.
Liability at the start but then read the game well and cleared the danger with firm headers.
Nightmare start for the left-back as Błaszczykowski ran past him too easily on a couple occasions and he soon received a yellow card. Missed one great chance in the second half as well.
Easy mistakes in marking from the start but recovered and then fought well against Lewandowski as the game progressed.
Best passer in his team but mostly out of the position behind the striker as he had more defensive duties to fulfil in this match.
Czechs biggest threat as he took advantage of his dribbling skills but he missed a chance himself at the start of the game.
Constant danger on the right side, he liked to drift inside from the wing and that was exactly how he took his goal.
Much improved performance after nervous opening 20 minutes, he ruled the midfield, passing the ball well from deep.
Poor mistake that almost gave Poland the lead in the opening 15 minutes but then passed and moved well around the pitch.
Should have claimed one through pass at the end of the first half but fought well throughout and caused Wasilewski a lot of problems with his movement.
Had one deflected shot to save and did well in the first half. Couldn't do anything about the goal before he stopped another shot heading for the back of the net with a reaction save.
You can see why Smuda wanted to wait late for his fitness tests as his positioning was of the highest level. Read the game very well from his position.
He was the driving force on the right but faded away badly and then struggled against Pilar in the second half.
Cleared the danger several times but had problems with Baros' movement and slipped at a crucial moment for the Czechs' goal.
Poor mistake at the start almost proved to be costly but he was strong and composed for the rest of the match.
His dribbling was great but he faded away too quickly and became very nervous in the second half, losing the ball with needless dribbles.
His ambitious overhead kick was just wide at the start as then he marked poorly and left a lot of space to Kolar.
Good only in the dead ball situations but his deliveries from set pieces could not hide the fact that his general passing was very poor.
Had an awful game, passing poorly and quickly receiving yellow card for poor challenge. Lech's midfielder lost the ball for the goal and failed to recover.
Very strong figure in Poland's midfield, winning more tackles than anybody else but lost the ball too easily on couple occasions.
He had three great chances before the break but failed to find the net and then desperately went missing in the second half as he struggled without any support.
