Polish media on Wednesday praised their national side's performance in the crunch match against old foes Russia, expressing hopes that the tournament co-hosts could yet make the knock-out stages.

"This tie has the taste of victory," the tabloid Super Express said Wednesday, calling the national team "unbeatable", after the 1-1 draw in the National Stadium in the capital, Warsaw, on Tuesday.

"We're still in the game!!!!," enthused Gazeta Wyborcza after the highly-charged match, which took place against a backdrop of turbulent shared history and bad blood between the two nations.

"For now, we can be sure the tournament won't bring us any more shame and that the players are up to the task," the centre-left daily added.
