Poland rallies to beat Wales 2-1 in Nations League opener


WROCLAW, Poland (AP) — Poland came from behind to beat an understrength Wales side 2-1 Wednesday in the opening game of the Nations League. Wales coach Robert Page rested most of his starters ahead of Sunday’s World Cup playoff but Jonny Williams still put the visitors ahead in the 52nd minute in Wroclaw with a low shot past goalkeeper Kamil Grabara. But Poland substitutes Jakub Kaminski and Karol Swiderski scored in the final 18 minutes to turn the game around and hand Wales its first defeat since losing to Denmark in the quarterfinals of the European Championship last year.
