Nigeria 2, Poland 2

I only caught the final 15 minutes of this game and it was an intense one. What I heard about the goals, was Poland scored a nice one early in the first half, Nigeria equalized and then Poland potted another right before the break. For the second half Poland seemed content to defend like crazy and cross its fingers for a counter-attack insurance goal. This gave Nigeria plenty of opportunities in the attacking zone, but Poland's luck held strong. Until the last 90 seconds when a Nigerian striker snuck in deep on the left, received the ball, turned and finished perfectly into the bottom corner. Very good game.

This was a great game to watch really intense but am glad Poland didn't win they didnt deserve to even tie , from all the talking they've made before, they have no chance beating Laos or Canada or ROI

I didn't catch the Laos/Afghan game, but of the 3 or 4 I watched last night this Poland/Nigeria game was definitely the game of the night! Fast paced, lots of excitement, lots of great scoring opportunities.

That being said, Poland was very unimpressive compared to all the hype about them. They were good, but far from WCP Champion good.

Laos vs afghan game started out good, first half was really good to watch, but second half if was Chico vs Laos and if u are a really good coach, u can't do that, Greece vs Norway was boring, Sudan vs Botswana was good to watch, how about Italy upsetting ES, didn't see that coming, Nigeria vs Poland definitely best game of the day, very intense from start to finish, Nigeria deserved to win but a tie is good for them now lets wait for the mighty Germany's to take the stage, I to.d u Germany is the best team in this group and they ate going to win the group so easily
