    A TEAM POSSESSED

    Never mind all their possession, Spain will be haunted by their missed chances if they fail to make it through to the Last 16 on Wednesday.

    E'S UP FOR GRABS

    With one round of games remaining, Group E is finely poised.

    Sweden will feel they've done enough (especially with four of the best third-place sides also facing a route through), but any of the four sides could yet make it to the knockout stages.

    The Swedes face Poland in Saint Petersburg in their final game while Slovakia take on Spain in Seville. Both games kick-off at 5pm on Wednesday.

    FULL TIME STATS

    The statistics suggest a Spanish domination, but after they again lacked a goal threat, it's more likely to be an inquisition from the media and fans following this result.

    FT: SPAIN 1-1 POLAND

    The match ends in a hard-fought draw, and its one that Poland are much happier with than their opponents. Robert Lewandowski's second half header is the reason that the visiting players are celebrating at the final whistle, and why the Spaniards are so despondent. The Poland captain's equaliser cancelled out Alvaro Morata's first half opener, and the hosts passed up their chance to win it when Gerard Moreno missed a penalty.

    PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!
    THE FINAL WHISTLE GOES IN SEVILLE!

    90+5. Well done, young man! Kozlowski breaks up Spain's last attack, and makes such a fool of Rodri that Man City's record signing brings him crashing to the ground.

    It's a yellow card, and surely the end of the action.

    90+4. For once, Spain have numbers in the penalty area but the delivery in is from the left is poor, and Linetty boots to safety in wonderful League Two fashion.

    SPAIN 1-1 POLAND

    90+3. Three minutes into five additional minutes, and Lewandowski picks up a yellow card for a foul on Laporte.

    The Poland striker won't mind as it eats up a few more seconds.

    90. As the clock strikes 90, the teenage substitute Kozlowski has the opportunity to spark a three-on-three, but over-eagerness gets the better of the 17-year-old and he blows his big chance.

    We've all been there.

    88. The 90-minute mark is closing in on Spain, and, as Danny Murphy states,"they're hardly battering down the door."

    You can't score if you're going side to side in your own half.

    SPAIN 1-1 POLAND

    86. Mikel Oyarzabal is Luis Enrique's latest – and possibly last – throw of the dice.

    The Real Sociedad forward is on for Morata, but time is running out.

    SPAIN 1-1 POLAND

    85. Jan Bednarek has taken a knock, and the Soutthampton defender will have to go off.

    It means Pawel Dawidowicz has the unenviable job of seeing out the match as Poland's new centre-back.

    The Poles makes another change too with Karol Linetty on for Jakub Moder.

    84. Brilliant save from Szczesny!

    The Poland stopper gets out quickly to dive at the feet of Sarabia after the Spain substitute had beaten the offside trap.

    It's a brave piece of goalkeeping that leaves both players requiring treatment.

    82. Pau Torres' individual battle with Lewandowski continues, but the centre-back will have to play the final minutes on a yellow card.

    He's penalised for blocking the Poland striker.

    80. It's been chaos in the Poland penalty area for the past minute.

    First, Bereszynski and Szczesny leave a loose ball to each other, and almost allow Ferran Torres to creep in, and then seconds later, it takes four Poland defenders to crowd out a grounded Morata.

    Rodri finally ends the danger by powering a shot into the arms of the Poland goalkeeper.

    77. And here's a reminder that Poland do still carry a threat even when out of possession for so long.

    Lewandowski sparks a counter by turning and finding Frankowski on the run. The captain then demands a return as he makes his way into the box, but the winger hesitates and it just allows Pau Torres to get back and block the cross.

    74. Paulo Sousa paces up and down his technical area, urging his players on.

    You certainly can't fault this Poland team, they've had to do a lot of chasing tonight.

  • Sam Dymond

    SPAIN 1-1 POLAND

    72. Ferran Torres has the opportunity to make himself an instant hero, but heads wide.

    Lovely build-up play involving namesake Pau, fellow substitute Sarabia and Marcus Llorente look to have put the ball on a plate for the forward, but the cross was perhaps travelling slightly behind him. Benefit of the doubt.

  • Sam Dymond

    SPAIN 1-1 POLAND

    68. Three more changes to report.

    Luis Enrique has thrown on Fabian Ruiz and Pablo Sarabia for Gerard Moreno and Koke while Paulo Sousa has introduced Przemyslaw Frankowski for Karol Swiderski.

  • Sam Dymond

    SPAIN 1-1 POLAND

    66. Lewandowski leaves another defender on the turf, this time flicking a chance into the vicinity of Bednarek…

    …but this time the referee blows for the foul Spain's players demanded at the equaliser.

  • Sam Dymond

    SPAIN 1-1 POLAND

    64. Spain are back on the front foot, looking to regain their lead.

    Morata has a sight of goal, but flashes a shot across the face.

  • Sam Dymond

    SPAIN 1-1 POLAND

    61. Spain make a change of their own.

    Manchester City's Ferran Torres is on for Dani Olmo.

  • Sam Dymond

    SPAIN 1-1 POLAND

    58. And now Jozwiak goes into the book for a foul on Pedri, and the Poland players are furious.

    Tempers are frayed out there.

    SPAIN 1-1 POLAND

    57. What drama!

    The VAR official and on-pitch referee combine to award Spain a spotkick forModer's clumsy challenge after his cross had gone.

    Gerard Moreno demands the ball, and looks confident as he steps up, but crashes his right-footed against the base of the post.

    Following up, Alvaro Morata is first to the rebound but makes an awful mess of his shot and misses by some distance.
