Poland goalkeeper Radowslaw Majecki denied Ousseynou Niang with a superb save from what was probably best chance of the entire match. In the end a draw mutually benefited both sides and the coaches were happy to settle for a point each.

Meanwhile, Colombia thrashed Tahiti 6-0 to finish second in the group on 6 points while Poland have four points and a good goal difference which ensures they finish as one of the top four third-place finishers the tournament.
