Lewandoski bagged college degree


Bayern Munich and Poland striker Robert Lewandowski has obtained a college degree, one day after helping his side secure their first World Cup appearance since 2006.

The prolific forward faced a panel from the Academy of Sport Education in Warsaw and passed his exam for a bachelor’s degree.

Lewandowski’s thesis focused on coaching and management and described his own career, from playing football as a child to competing for titles in large stadiums.

It spoke of ambition and rivalry and of the support Lewandowski got from his parents and wife and the work is set to be published.

On Sunday, Lewandowski netted in Poland’s 4-2 win over Montenegro, his 16th goal of the qualifying campaign.

The prolific forward will hope he can carry his form on the international stage with him to the Bundesliga.

Bayern currently lie in second place in the Bundesliga having replaced Carlo Ancelotti with Jupp Heynckes.

Lewandowski will hope to impress his new boss and close the five-point gap to Borussia Dortmund when his side welcome Freiburg on Saturday.

Lewandowski scored a European qualifying record 16th goal as Poland defeated Montenegro 4-2 on Sunday to reach next year’s World Cup, but Scotland missed out on the play-offs after a 2-2 draw in Slovenia.

Krzysztof Maczynski and Kamil Grosicki struck early as Poland made a dream start, but Montenegro hit back through goals from Stefan Mugosa and Zarko Tomasevic to pull level with just seven minutes left.

Lewandowski restored Poland’s advantage on 85 minutes before a late own goal from Filip Stojkovic sealed victory, although Denmark’s 1-1 draw at home to Romania ultimately rendered the outcome irrelevant.

The Danes needed to win in Copenhagen while hoping that Montenegro could upset Poland to finish top of Group E, but Ciprian Deac’s late equaliser cancelled out a 60th-minute penalty from Christian Eriksen.

However, Denmark are at least assured of a place in next month’s play-offs as one of the eight best runners-up from the nine qualifying groups.

Slovakia face an anxious wait to discover whether they will advance to the two-legged play-offs after finishing second behind England in Group F following a comfortable 3-0 win over Malta.
