Unstoppable Robert Lewandowski has warned Scotland he intends to get even better after scoring 10 goals in his last three games.
The prolific marksman, who will captain Poland in next Thursday’s crucial Euro 2016 qualifier at Hampden, ripped up the record books in the Bundesliga last week by netting five goals in nine minutes against Wolfsburg.
Lewandowski followed that with a deadly double in a 3-0 win over Mainz before taking that scintillating form into the Champions League on Tuesday night, notching a hat-trick in Bayern’s 5-0 demolition of Dinamo Zagreb.
He has now scored 17 goals in 12 games in total this season.
The most in-form striker in the world will cross swords with his former club, Borussia Dortmund, in Sunday’s Der Klassiker in Germany and will then turn his attention to Scotland
And ominously, Lewandowski insists his recent run has done nothing to satisfy his appetite for goals.
The 27-year-old said: “I can be happy that I scored more goals versus Zagreb but you always have to be thirsty for goals and you have to be hungry to play better and achieve more. I always want more.
“In the last 15 minutes, I had chances to score even more. It’s more important, however, that we won.”
Strachan has emphasised the need to cut off the supply line to Lewandowski when Poland arrive at Hampden – and even Bayern’s Thomas Muller, a superstar in his own right, is looking for his No.9 at every opportunity.
Muller lauded: “If he goes on like this it’s very good for the team. We just need to make sure that we keep getting him in dangerous positions and that we get the ball to him.
“We also have to keep playing as a team and act united, but it is clear that Robert is in amazing form.”
