Scotland went to Poland, who had defeated Germany three days earlier to top the group.  With only 11 minutes on the clock, the Poles took the lead, when sloppy defending from Hutton let Maczynski hit a low shot in off the post.  Seven minutes later, Scotland equalised.  Steven Fletcher played a great cross-field ball to Anya down the wing, who then cut the ball back for Maloney to side foot the ball past the keeper.  12 minutes into the second half, Scotland took the lead.  James Morrison played a free-kick into the box, and Naismith slid in and diverted the ball past the keeper.  With 15 minutes remaining, Scotland almost got their third, when Anya passed to Maloney just inside the box, and his shot was touched over by Szczesny.  A minute later the Poles equalised when Milik latched on to a great pass by Jedrzejczyk, and hit a powerful shot past Marshall. A few minutes later, Marshall made a great save from a Lewandowski shot.  With six minutes remaining, Poland should have gone ahead when Grosicki hit the post, and Mila sliced the rebound wide. Scotland held on though to gain a much deserved and credible draw in Poland.
