(Reuters) - Poland's World Cup qualifying hopes took another serious knock when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Group H strugglers Moldova in Chisinau on Friday.
Captain Jakub Blaszczykowski gave the visitors a seventh-minute lead when he coolly slotted the ball home following a perfect through pass from Borussia Dortmund team mate Robert Lewandowski.
Eugeniu Sidorenco equalised from a narrow angle 30 minutes later, firing his first Moldova goal after a cross by Vitalie Bordian.
Poland are fourth in the table with nine points from six matches, five adrift of leaders Montenegro. Moldova are second from bottom on five points.
