Ooooh! Big moment. Krychowiak is sent off for a second yellow. Could the momentum shift again?
Skriniar deals with Zielinski's first kick. His second comes to nothing.

Free kick in a great position for Poland. Lewandowski stood over it. Zielinski too.

- End of 1st Half
Half time! Slovakia have a surprise but deserved lead. They've starved Lewandowski and allowed Hamsik to control the game.
Just one added minute here.
Poland fail to make pressure tell when Krychowiak crosses but can't find Lewandowski. Mateusz Klich hesitates and Slovakia break again with Duda and Hamsik. The latter has been brilliant.
Lewandowski's first chance. He chests Rybus' cross and fires wide. He dropped deep and created the chance himself, but he looks frustrated.
Linetty shoots under pressure from Skriniar. Good ball from Zielinski, but Poland can't find Lewandowski and get in the area.
Now Zielinski and Hamsik both shoot wide.
STRIKE! Krychowiak hits one in anger and it goes over Dubravka's goal. No threat, but at least a moment for Poland.
Kucka heads towards goal but it lacks power. Another great break from Slovakia through Hamsik, with three players getting forward.
Here is the opener... Mak or Szczesny?
Technically, no shots on target for either side, though...
Half an hour in and Slovakia deservedly lead. They've been so fluid in attack and Poland are struggling to break the pattern.
Poland are being outnumbered in midfield; Zielinski is struggling to get involved and Lewandowski has hardly had a kick in the last few minutes.
SHOT! Kucka shoots over after Poland fail to clear. They certainly are not lying down here.
Great counter attack by Slovakia wins a corner. Hamsik is really shining so far. Drifting in and out of position and constantly finding space.
Slovakia win another free kick. They've managed this game well so far.
- Yellow cardGrzegorz KrychowiakPoland
Now its a yellow for Krychowiak. Another necessary foul.
UEFA have credited the goal to Szczesny. Own goal!
- Yellow cardTomáš HubocanSlovakia
Professional foul by Tomas Hubocan. Yellow card.
Brilliant run, but Wojciech Szczesny should have kept it out. It was also poor defending by Poland.
- Own-goalWojciech SzczesnyPoland
GOOOOOOOOAAAALLLL! Slovakia lead. Brilliant solo goal by Robert Mak!
Kamil Glik was the target but it goes over his head.
Kucka gives a free kick away. Rybus uis over it, just to the left but a distance out.
SHOT! Good work from Duda who drifts in from the left after switching wings. Does well to find the target but Sczesny isn't tested.
Slovakia have finally eased into this with a spell of sustained position.
Lubomir Satka wins a free kick after defending Jozwiak's cross brilliantly.
Dubravka punches a free kick away. Poland keep coming back, though. No chances yet.
Hamsik is drifting wide for Slovakia and creating space. Watch out for linkup with Duda, there is some real talent on this pitch today.
Zielindki and Lewandowski linking well. Cross defended well by Skriniar. Thow in for Poland.
Hamsik's kick is good and headed across goal. Lewandowski is there to deal with it before Poland clear.
Now the ex-Sevilla man gives away a free kick in a good area. Hamsik over it.
Free kick to Poland for a foul on Kcrychowiak.

Off we go...
Anthems done! Here we go...
Teams are in the tunnel. There has been a trend of second half goals so far. Will that trend continue today?

Just over 15 minutes until kick off. Catch up with how Scotland got on in their first game at a major tournament for 23 years.
Here is the ITV panel discussing Lewandowski.
Poland's boss will be familiar to QPR and Swansea fans, Paulo Sousa...
We can't ignore Marek Hamsik either. The 33-year-old Gotenborg playmaker may not have the magic of his Napoli days, but he'll still be a major threat for Poland today.
Ondrej Duda is a threat for Slovakia, but their biggest names are in defence. Newcastle's Martin Dubravka is a brilliant goalkeeper, while Inter defender Milan Skriniar is also well known. They finished just a point behind Wales and three behind group winners Croatia in qualifying, winning four of their eight games, but came through a play-off thanks to success in the UEFA Nations League. They'll not be pushovers here, that is for sure.
Poland are quite reliant on Lewandowski for goals. They only managed 18 in qualification, the striker scoring six, but they defended well by conceding just five. Wojciech Sczcesny is a strong goalkeeper, and Jan Bednarek marshals the defence well with Kamil Glik. Napoli's Piotr Zielinski is a chief threat in midfield.
What a chance for Poland to lay down a marker before group favourites Spain kick off against Sweden later today. Lewandowski, fresh from a record-breaking Bundesliga .season with Bayern Munich, will always give them a chance,
Slovakia line up!
Robert Lewandowski starts for Poland!
