Przemysław Frankowski starts, records assist for Poland in 1-1 draw with Russia

Chicago Fire FC midfielder Przemysław Frankowski delivered a nifty assist for Poland on Tuesday in a EURO 2020 warmup against Russia. 

Earning the start in his 11th international appearance, Frankowski helped get Poland off to a flying start in the fourth minute when he snuck in behind the Russian back line to receive a deep pass from Mateusz Klich. After a first touch that took him away from goal, Frankowski recovered and laid a ball off beautifully for Jakub Swierczok, who slotted it home for an early 1-0 lead at Stadion Miejski in Gdańsk.
