The draw leaves Sweden top of Group E on four points, with Slovakia second with three, Spain third on two points and the Poles bottom with one

Spain striker Alvaro Morata's first-half goal was cancelled out by a Robert Lewandowski strike for Poland in a 1-1 draw Saturday that ensured all four Euro 2020 Group E teams can still qualify as they head into Wednesday's final round of matches.

Morata broke the deadlock in the 25th minute, pouncing to sweep home Gerard Moreno's driven ball into the box and, though a linesman's flag for offside delayed the celebrations, the goal was awarded following a Video Assistant Referee review.

Lewandowski equalized with a towering header from Kamil Jozwiak's cross in the 54th minute and four minutes later a Moreno penalty came cannoning off the left-hand post, with Morata missing the rebound and several more second-half chances.

The draw leaves Sweden top of Group E on four points, with Slovakia second with three, Spain third on two points and the Poles bottom with one. 

Sweden play Poland in their final game Wednesday when Spain meet Slovakia.
