Poland 1-1 Russia LIVE SCORE: Karavaev cancels out Swierczok strike as Lewandowski looks on in Euro 2020 warm-up

POLAND and Russia are level in a fascinating Euro 2020 warm-up match.

Jakub Swierczok gave Poland the lead after just three minutes but Vyacheslav Karavaev forced in an equaliser for the Russians.

Robert Lewandowski has been confined to the bench for the start of this game.

    73. Swierczok turns away well from his marker Kudryashov, but is caught and goes to ground.

    Kudryashov – already on a booking – holds his hands up and pleads with the referee and is lucky not to see a second yellow.

    At Euro 2020, he won't be so lucky.

    71. Brighton midfielder Moder cuts inside off the left-hand side.

    And instead of clipping the ball to the far post, Moder goes for goal himself – but his effort comfortably clears the crossbar.

    The No16 has to do better there, there was better options on at the time.

    50. Ozdoyev lose control of the ball close to the touchline and the ball goes out of play.

    The Russian midfielder tries to play on as if nothing has happened, but the referee blows his whistle and awards Poland a throw-in.

    49. It has been a slow start to the second half with neither side creating a goal-scoring opportunity.

    It wouldn't surprise me if we see a lot of substitutions in the second half – there's already two Polish players warming up down the touchline.

    47. Frankowski concedes a sloppy free-kick inside his own half for a foul on Kuzyayev.

    Good opportunity for the Russians to pump the ball into the penalty area looking for the big man Dzyuba.

    HT: POLAND 1-1 RUSSIA

    The home side got off to the perfect start with Leeds midfielder Klich finding Frankowski inside Russia's penalty area.

    The No19 unselfishly squared the ball to Swierczok and the forward swept the ball home to take an early lead in the 3rd minute.

    Russia decided it was time to wake up after they conceded a goal, and they started to get a foot on the ball.

    Playmaker Golovin cut inside off the left-hand side and floated a wonderful ball towards the far post.

    Dzyuba distracted the Polish defenders and Karavayev snuck in at the far post to tap in the equaliser.

    Russia have looked the better side, and the game is there for the taking.

    Time for Lewandowski?
