Check out Schar’s tackle below.

Lewandowski has had a quiet tournament but his manager, Adam Nawalka, isn’t concerned.

When asked if Lewandowski is going through the same difficulties as Cristiano Ronaldo when the Real Madrid man failed to score in the first two games of the tournament, Nawalka was dismissive.

“We don't have a single problem with the fact that Robert hasn't scored so far,” he said, per the Daily Mail.

“He's doing a great job for our side. We are a team that understands each other very well and knows that what's good for the team is the most important thing.

“Robert Lewandowski is doing very well in his role. So I don't like those comparisons, I don't want them. I'm very happy Robert Lewandowski is in our side.”
