Karol Linetty latches on to a perfect pass and fires an excellent low cross into the middle of the net to equalise for Poland.


In the 62nd minute, referee Ovidiu Hategan blows his whistle and Poland's Grzegorz Krychowiak is shown a second yellow card after a foul.


Slovakia made the numerical advantage count in the 69th minute as Milan Skriniar scored the winning goal.
