ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI cried after he scored his first World Cup – which came after changing his boots at half-time.
The Barcelona striker, 34, fired blanks in his four World Cup appearances prior to Poland's clash with sky-high Saudi Arabia.
Poland's first half wasn't great for Lewandowski, prompting a change of boots at half-time to break his World Cup hoodoo.
And it worked as Lewandowski latched onto a sloppy mistake by a Saudi defender before sweeping the ball past the goalkeeper, adding to Piotr Zielinski's first half goal.
Lewandowski was emotional as he celebrated, crying after being swarmed by his team-mates.
It was Lewandowski's 77th strike for Poland and a career 604th.
