A draw had been forecast, and a draw is the actual result: Poland-Russia ends 1-1 for the goals by Dzagoev, new top scorer of the Championship with three goals after the header at 37’, and by Pollish captain Blaszczykowski, author of a top goal with the left after a very speed counter-attack at 12’ of second half. After this goal both of the teams decide to content, so the verdict about qualification is delayed to the last matches planned for Saturday 16th. Russia will be qualified with a draw against Greece, Poland will have to beat Czech Republic.
