International Frustration For Both Grosicki And Magennis

10 September 2019
Kamil Grosicki and Josh Magennis were both in Euro 2020 qualifier action for Poland and Northern Ireland respectively on Monday night.

Grosicki’s Poland were held to a 0-0 draw in a top-of-the-table clash with Austria, which saw their lead at the top of Group G cut to two points after Slovenia’s win over Israel.

The Tigers’ winger was on the pitch for 70 minutes – creating the Poles’ best chance for Robert Lewandowski – before being substituted in the clash at the National Stadium in Warsaw.

Magennis, meanwhile, was introduced into the action for the final 20 minutes of Northern Ireland’s 2-0 defeat at the hands of Germany at Windsor Park despite a spirited display.

Marcel Halstenberg’s stunning half-volley early in the second half and a stoppage-time goal by Serge Gnabry gave Joachim Low’s men victory.

The defeat – which saw Michael O’Neill’s side fail to score at home for the first time in their last eight international matches – resulted in Northern Ireland dropping to second in Group C, with the Germans moving above them on goal difference.
