Robert Lewandowksi demonstrated his lethal precision in a training session before of Poland’s Group E opener, leaving one spectator with a damaged phone on the sidelines.
The 32-year-old attacker, who is often regarded as the most prolific scorer in global football, enters this summer’s championship fresh off another productive season with Bayern Munich.
For club and country, he scored 53 goals in 47 games, beating Gerd Muller’s single-season Bundesliga goalscoring record of 41 goals in just 29 league games.
With the veteran attacker in probably the best form of his career, Lewandowski is anticipated to play a key role in Paulo Sousa’s side’s aims at this summer’s tournament.
And, after such a lengthy season, it appears that his accuracy is still on point, as seen by a video of him striking the tiny target of an iPhone during Poland’s most recent training session.
How did he pull it off?

Lewandowski will be looking to score in Poland’s opening match against Slovakia on Monday afternoon, and he will undoubtedly play a key role in whether or not they advance from their group.
In their second game in Group E, they will have a tough test against Sweden before playing three-time champions Spain.

Poland boss Paulo Sousa knows how key the presence of Lewandowski will be in the coming weeks.
“He’s majorly important as the quality he has raises our level and you can see a country relying on him,” he told UEFA.
“He is always a very sensible boy, he always wants to perform. You can see all that he has achieved so far. He needs to have discipline, ambition, he always needs to push himself to the maximum.
“We are working on heading in that direction where we can have a team that is balanced, organised, aggressive with players who at certain moments of the game, spend two or three times more energy to get up and support him, where in the key moments he needs to make a difference.
