EURO 2016: Poland Hold Germany To A Goalless Draw

Germany and Poland fought a battle of attrition that ended in a goalless draw and edged both countries towards a place in the last 16 of Euro 2016 on Thursday.

The stalemate left Germany on top of Group C on goal difference with both sides on four points from two matches.

Poland’s Arkadiusz Milik had the best chance when he bundled the ball wide from point-blank range early in the second-half.

Germany’s Jerome Boateng complained that his side had been “too rigid”, but agreed that a draw was a fair result from a tightly contested encounter.

“We can be happy with the nil-nil,” Boateng said, but he criticised his side’s lack of attacking punch.

“We didn’t take the game to our opponents, we weren’t dangerous enough and we have to improve that or we won’t get far,” he told ZDF.

“We’ve now got to make sure we win the last group game so that we go through as group winners.”
