Robert Lewandowski (Polish pronunciation: [ˈrɔbɛrt lɛvanˈdɔfskʲi] (audio speaker iconlisten); born 21 August 1988) is a Polish professional footballer who plays as a striker for La Liga club Barcelona and the Poland national team.

He began his career with Znicz Pruszków in 2005, then continuously moved up the Polish tiers until he made it to the first-tier club Lech Poznań in 2008.

A full international for Poland since 2008, Lewandowski has earned over 100 caps and was a member of their team at Euro 2012, Euro 2016 and 2018 FIFA World Cup. With 60 international goals, Lewandowski is the all-time top scorer for Poland. In 2015, he was voted Polish Sportspersonality of the Year and in 2016 he claimed fourth place at the 2015 FIFA Ballon d'Or Awards.

He has been named the Polish Player of the Year a record seven times. The Guardian has ranked him as the fifth-best footballer on the planet in 2015.[4]

Likely one of Lewandowski's most famous records is scoring 5 goals in 9 minutes (8:59).[5] For achieving this, Robert Lewandowski was awarded 4 Guinness World Records.[6]
