WARSAW, Poland — Poland striker Robert Lewandowski has obtained a college degree, one day after scoring his 16th goal in World Cup qualifying.

The Bayern Munich forward faced a panel from the Academy of Sport Education in Warsaw and passed his exam for a bachelor's degree.

One of the professors, Marek Rybinski, said Lewandowski's answers were "excellent."

Lewandowski's thesis focused on coaching and management and described his own career from childhood soccer to playing for titles in large stadiums. It spoke of ambition and rivalry and of the support Lewandowski got from his parents and wife. It is to be published.

On Sunday, Lewandowski scored a goal in Poland's 4-2 win over Montenegro that secured Poland its first World Cup appearance since 2006.
