Full-time: Spain are still without a victory in Group E and must now beat Slovakia to guarantee their place in the last-16 after being held to their second successive draw. Fair play to Poland, they totally deserve their point.

90'+4

Yellow card! A desperate foul from Rodri on Kozlowski to stop a Poland counter-attack sees the Manchester City midfielder go into the book.

90'

There will be FIVE minutes of injury-time.

89' 

Last minute of the 90 and Spain are still lacking urgency. This result will put a huge amount of pressure on Luis Enrique's side ahead of their final Group E game, against Slovakia on Wednesday.

Close! Szczesny does well to close down Morata's shot, the Juventus striker keeps it alive but Torres chips it onto the roof of the net, as another chance goes begging for Spain.

Torres is booked for jumping unfairly with Lewandowski.

81' 

Sarabia shoots from distance but it's more confident goalkeeping from Szczesny this time as he catches it comfortably. Time is running out for Spain.

80' 

Szczesny gets away with one! He races off his line in an attempt to smother the ball but somehow lets it out of his grasp only to hold onto it at the second attempt.

77' 

Poland are still causing a threat offensively as Frankowski races down the right following a fine pass from Lewandowski, but he makes the wrong decision in trying to cross and Paul Torres makes the interception.

73'

Miss! That's an awful effort from Torres. He's unmarked in the penalty area to meet Llorente's cross but doesn't generate the power or accuracy in his header.

71' 

Sarabia draws the foul from Glik and wins a free-kick on the right flank. Sarabia delivers the set-piece and puts it right on top of Szczesny, who punches clear.

- 

Lewandowski had been facing criticism for his international form but he has produced when it really mattered tonight.

Spain sub: Torres comes on for Olmo, can the Manchester City forward make the difference?

61' 

Spain missed two penalties in the same game against Switzerland last November and now they've hit the post in Seville. It's a moment to forget for Moreno, but Morata ought to have scored from the rebound.

Have a look at Lewandowski's equaliser...

Yellow card! Tempers are rising as Puchacz goes into the book for a foul on Pedri.

58'

The penalty is missed! Moreno strikes it well but sees his spot-kick crash off the post and Morata shoots wide from the rebound! Has justice been served?

57'

The penalty is given! The referee points to the spot having seen contact, but you have to say that is soft. Spain have a glorious chance to restore their lead.

56'

VAR check! The referee is going over to the pitchside monitor to check for a potential penalty. Moder appears to catch Moreno inside the box, but is it enough for a spot-kick?

GOAL! Spain 1-1 Poland (Robert Lewandowski): Curse of the commentator, Lewandowski pulls Poland level! It's a sublime header from the Bayern Munich hitman, showing tremendous strength to get on the end of a cross in front of Laporte and heads it powerfully past Simon. Game on!

52' 

Lewandowski hasn't had much change out of Laporte and so far hasn't been able to add to his concerning record of just two goals in major international tournaments.

50' 

Morata catches his marker Glik in possession but leaves his arm in and commits the foul.

48' 

Poland's decision-making in the final third has let them down on too many occasions, and now Swiderski overhits a pass hoping to release Lewandowski and the chance is gone.

  • 2nd Half
46'

Kick-off! We are underway in the second-half and Poland have a huge 45 minutes left to save their tournament.

  • End of 1st Half
HT

Half-time: Alvaro Morata's 25th-minute goal separates the sides at the break.

45'

Chance for Spain! Alba almost makes amends as he feeds Moreno with a nice pass but the Villarreal man can only find the side-netting with the goal gaping.

42'

How have Poland not equalised? Swiderski wins the ball high up the pitch after a heavy touch from Alba and unloads from the edge of the penalty area only to see his shot crash off the bottom of the post. The rebound falls to Lewandowski, but the Bayern hitman is still searching for his first goal of the tournament as Simon makes himself big to save his shot.

38' 

Morata is working hard and wins a corner, his cross coming off Bereszynski. Again Spain frustrate with a short corner which comes to absolutely nothing.

Yellow card! Klich will have to be on his best behaviour now as he goes into the book for a foul on Pedri.

35'

Chance! Lewandowski drifts into a wide position and floats a teasing ball into the six-yard box. Swiderski races across goal to get into his marker but hooks it over the bar, and that's a real chance for Poland to level the scores. Should he have been braver and used his head?

- 

Luis Enrique's decision has been justified...

34'

Just wide! Moreno decides to keep his shot low as he curls it around the wall but it drifts agonisingly wide of Szczesny's far post.

33' 

Free-kick! Olmo races infield and is fouled by Glik right on the edge of the penalty area. This is another chance for Spain, can they double their advantage?

30' 

Poland must now score at least twice to have any chance of keeping their last-16 hopes alive. Puchacz races down the left but Rodri tracks him all the way and wins it back for Spain.

21' 

Spain win their third corner of the evening but again it's played short and again it ends in frustration.

19' 

A scramble ensues from Spain's corner, Bednarek wins a vital header and Rodri misses the connection from the loose ball. Lewandowski races forward as Poland break but he's quickly crowded out and loses out to Laporte.

18' 

Last-ditch defending required from Bednarek as he clears Morata's looped effort out for another corner.

17' 

Spain win the first corner of the game. It's taken short to Koke who finally delivers the cross but Glik wins the defensive header to clear.

16' 

Morata and Moreno try a clever one-two but the move collapses and Poland break, but a poor pass allows Spain to recover possession.

- 
12' 

Very poor from Pau Torres, who shoots well wide with a weak effort from distance. A defender's finish. Spain haven't got going yet.

10'

Jozwiak feels he's fouled by Olmo, who steals the ball from the full-back on the left flank. But the referee allows play to continue as the Spanish wideman carves in and drills a low shot from the edge of the penalty area which is a comfortable save for Szczesny.

- 
8' 

Poland are playing with a really high line, putting the Spanish defence under pressure and penning their opponents inside their own half. Luis Enrique has plenty to think about.

7'

Just over! Simon in the Spanish goal is scrambling as Klich unloads a shot from distance. There's plenty of pace and movement on the ball but it lands on the roof of the net.

6' 

Puchacz wins a free-kick in midfield for Poland, who have started with real intensity and energy.

4' 

It has been a bright start from Poland.

2' 

No penalty! Spain give the ball away in a dangerous position, on the right flank. Zielinksi drives into the box and takes a tumble under pressure from Morata right in front of the referee, who draws the whistle to his mouth but opts not to give Poland an early spot-kick.

Kick-off! We are underway in Seville!

19:57 

It's time for the national anthems... This should be an entertaining contest and one I'm looking forward to.

19:50

Did you know? After drawing against Sweden, Spain could open a EUROs tournament with no wins from their opening two matches for the first time since the 1996 edition. That year they finished second in their group and were eliminated by England in the quarter-finals on penalties.

19:45 

Group E is shaping up very nicely. Sweden are top with four points after beating second-placed Slovakia 1-0 yesterday. Spain start the night in third, two points behind Slovakia, while Poland are bottom without a point.

19:40 

Poland's only success against Spain came in a friendly; a 2-1 victory at the Estadio de Sarriá in Barcelona in November 1980.

19:35

The omens are heavily in Spain's favour, they have won eight of their ten previous games against Poland, losing only once.

19:30 

Paulo Sousa, Poland coach: "What makes me optimistic before the game is, first of all, the quality of my players and their belief that we can do it. Of course, we are in a difficult situation, but sometimes great things are forged in adversity. Our task will be to minimise their possession as much as possible. But as I said, we have quality in our team and will do the best to show it against Spain."

Paulo Sousa
19:15 

Three alterations to the Poland side as Jakub Molder of Brighton comes in for the suspended Grzegorz Krychowiak in midfield. Tymoteusz Puchacz and forward Karol Swiderski are also in with Majiej Rybus and Karol Linetty dropping to the bench.

19:10 

Just the one change to Spain's starting XI and the big news is that Alvaro Morata keeps his place despite a below-par performance against Sweden. He'll be joined in attack by Gerard Moreno, who comes in for Ferran Torres.

19:05

19:00 

Hello and welcome to Eurosport's LIVE text commentary of the Group E clash between Spain and Poland. Luis Enrique will be hoping his side can be more ruthless in front of goal to get a much-needed victory on the board having been held to a goalless draw by Sweden last time out, while Poland's 2-1 loss to Slovakia has them on the brink of a group stage exit unless they can get something tonight. Let's grab the team news ahead of this 8pm kick-off.
