Swiss and Poles Locked in 2:2 Stalemate in Wroclaw

WROCLAW, Poland. November 18 (AP) – Switzerland scored early and late to draw 2:2 at Poland in an entertaining friendly match in Wroclaw on Tuesday.

Final Score: Poland 2:2 Switzerland

Josip Drmic put the Swiss ahead in the 3rd, running on to a pass from Xherdan Shaqiri.

Poland leveled in first-half stoppage-time from defender Artur Jedrzejczyk’s header. The hosts led in the 61st when Arkadiusz Milik curled a left-footed free kick from the edge of the penalty area.

Substitute Fabian Frei scored his first international goal in the 87th minute, six minutes after Poland defender Michal Zyro was sent off for a second booking.

Drmic was denied in the 41st when his shot was blocked in a goal-mouth scramble as Switzerland had four shots in quick succession. The danger was cleared only by Polish goalkeeper Artur Boruc’s stunning save from Pajtim Kasami’s shot.
