Club career

In 2006-07 Lewandowski was the Polish third division's top goal scorer with 15 goals, helping Znicz Pruszków win promotion.[3] The next season he was the top scorer in the Polish second division with 21 goals.[3]

In June 2008 Lech Poznań signed him from Znicz for 1.5 million złotych.[4][5]

He made his debut for Lech in July 2008 as a sub in a first round UEFA Cup qualifier versus Khazar Lenkoran from Azerbaijan. In that match he scored the only goal of the match. During his Ekstraklasa debut in the first game of the season in a match against GKS Bełchatów he scored a heel flick goal just four minutes after coming into the game late second half.

Scoring in debuts

Lewandowski is well known in Poland for being a so-called "debut scorer". His debut goals are listed below:

International career

Lewandowski made three appearances for Poland's U21 team, in friendly matches against England, Belarus and Finland.

His debut for the senior national team came on 10 September 2008, three weeks after his 20th birthday, against San Marino where he came on as a sub and scored one goal. Only Włodzimierz Lubański, who is widely considered a "legend", scored a goal in his debut for national team being younger than Lewandowski, having been 16 at the time. Lewandowski scored his second international goal for Poland in the 3-2 victory over the Republic of Ireland. In the second group match against San Marino in 2010 World Cup qualifications he scored a goal and made two assists. Poland won this match 10:0.
