World champions Germany flattered to deceive as they were held 0-0 by Poland in the first goalless draw of Euro 2016.

The tournament favourites lacked a cutting edge in the Group C encounter as they took 46 minutes to register a shot on target.

Poland created the better chances and Ajax striker Arkadiusz Milik missed two glorious opportunities in the second half, which denied the Poles a famous victory against a team they’ve only beaten once in the last 21 games.

The result opens up Group C with Germany and Poland on four points and Northern Ireland, who face Germany on Tuesday, just a point behind after their historic win over Ukraine.
