After a quiet start to the second half, Portugal were reduced to ten men after Danilo Pereir was shown a straight red card, resulting in penalty, which Arkadiusz Milik converted in the 66th minute.
Poland were looking to take advantage of the numbers game and they should have taken the lead after 70 minutes but Grzegorz Krychowiak failed to hit the target from six-yards out.
The visitors managed to carve out a couple more chances as the half to drew to a close, with Damian Kadzior squandering two openings in the final ten minutes.
In the end, 1-1 was how the score remained as Portugal, who already secured top spot, finish unbeaten in the group.
