Poland has beaten Ukraine 1-0 in the two sides' Euro 2016 Group C clash on Tuesday evening, finishing second to qualify for the last 16.

Jakub Blaszczykowski, Poland's 30-year-old winger, scored in the 54th minute to give his team the lead.

Although Poland displayed a less-impressive performance compared to their previous two matches, they got the job done with a clean sheet.

Germany, who has beaten Northern Ireland 1-0, topped Group C without conceding a goal.

Northern Ireland will now have to wait for its fate after finishing the group in third place.
