Borussia Dortmund loanee Jakub Blaszczykowski scored the game-winning goal for Poland in its international friendly victory over Serbia. The goal was the only one of the match, as the Polish defense stifled the Serbian attack.

Blaszczykowski played all 90 minutes at midfield for Poland. Dortmund defender Lukasz Piszczek also put in a full-match effort, keeping Serbia off the scoresheet.

The goal came in the 28th minute on a volley from the top of the 18-yard box. Blaszczykowski blasted a shot past the Serbian keeper Vladimir Stojkovic to put Poland ahead.

Heading into the European Championship this summer, Poland is looking to gain some momentum with pivotal victories in these international friendlies. Featuring a strong attack with solid pairs of strikers and wingers, defense will be the emphasis of Poland's preparation. Anchoring the backline will be Piszczek, and through one friendly things are looking up so far.
