Robert Lambert helped Great Britain's speedway team go agonisingly close to striking gold in the inaugural Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations Final in Poland.

They had to settle for silver in a dramatic last gasp final shootout with Russia – despite finishing the tournament as top scorers.

Scunthorpe-born double world individual champion Tai Woffinden inspired the side straight through to the one-off final with a stunning display, winning 12 of his 13 outings over the two nights in Wroclaw.

But he received handy support from King's Lynn's Lambert, the British Under 21 Champion.
