Ecuador 2, Poland 0
By JOSH DUBOW, AP Sports Writer
GELSENKIRCHEN, Germany (AP) -- Agustin Delgado and Ecuador proved they are World Cup worthy far away from the comforts -- and high altitude -- of home.
Delgado set up a first-half goal and added his own score in the 80th minute to quiet the boisterous pro-Poland crowd with a 2-0 victory Friday night in the World Cup opener for both

Thousands of Polish fans made the trip to Germany, where the team won the 1972 Olympic gold medal and finished third in the 1974 World Cup. They draped the stadium in a sea of red and white, making it feel more like Warsaw than Gelsenkirchen.
But this was another disappointing start to a World Cup for the Poles, who lost 2-0 to co-host South Korea in the opener in 2002. They were eliminated in the first round despite a win over the United States.
With a matchup against host Germany -- a team it has never beat in 14 tries -- coming Wednesday, Poland needs to sharpen up quickly or could become a first-round casualty again.

    Rob shame on your as a good pole you should know that Polska did not roll over for anyone. Just like all through out history we have had another invader who has trampled on us and once again we will get up dust ourselves off and go on. Hopefully like the great Mariusz Pudzianowski we will not only get up and dust ourselves off but we will conquer.

    GO POLSKA!!!
