One of the best strikers of all time, Robert Lewandowski, finally has a goal to his name in the FIFA World Cup. In his second match of this year's edition and fifth overall in World Cup history, he finally managed to find his name on the scoresheet. The Poland striker pounced on the mistake of Saudi Arabia’s midfielder Al Malki and scored his team’s second goal in the 82nd minute of the game to seal the deal.

Lewandowski, who failed to convert from the spot in Poland’s Group C opener against Mexico on Tuesday (November 22), finally ended his long wait. It was his 77th goal for Poland and certainly the most memorable one.

And that’s why, when the ball crossed the line, Lewandowski enjoyed that moment to the fullest and was seen having tears in his eyes as well. The video of his emotional celebration after scoring the first goal for Poland in the FIFA World Cup has gone viral on the internet.

Plucky Poland near World Cup last 16 after stunning Saudi Arabia 2-0

With a win over Saudi Arabia, Poland has improved its chances of reaching the Round of 16. With four points from two matches, they sit at the top of Group C's points table at the moment, and if they manage to avoid a big defeat against Argentina in their final group match on Thursday (December 1), then they will make it to the Round of 16. If Poland beats Argentina, like Saudi Arabia did, then they will retain the number one position, and Argentina will get eliminated. A draw will also be enough to take them through.

With his goal against Saudi Arabia, Lewandowski, who has scored 558 goals in 765 matches at club level, also equaled Brazil legend Pele in the list of top goal scorers in international football. Both of them have 77 goals to their names, but Lewandowski has taken 44 more games than the three-time World Cup winner to reach that mark.
