Watch the dramatic moment Robert Lewandowski fell to the floor during Poland's World Cup qualifying win in Romania after a flare exploded near him.
The Bayern Munich striker was waiting for a corner in the Group E clash at the Arena Nationala in Bucharest on Friday night when a flare was apparently thrown on to the pitch from behind the goal.
As he signalled to officials to remove the object, the flare then exploded close to him, causing Lewandowski to fall to the floor clutching his face.
As worried team-mates looked on, the Poland star was then treated by the Poland medical team for a significant period of time, appearing groggy and dazed, before returning to the field of play.
He shook off the incident, however, to score two goals in Poland's 3-0 win which means he has scored in all four of their World Cup qualifying matches so far.
