Shows how shocking your qualifying group really was. Almost as bad as ours.
And to be fair, Poland had two shots off the post, but I think they lacked the ability in front of goal today. There were a number of good opportunities, but they were either a) shot into rushing Ecuadorians who came out to tackle or b) went over the players who got the crosses. Ecuador really weren't that good defensively as they were made out, though, often overrun..
