After finishing bottom of their group at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Poland replaced their manager Adam Nawałka with Jerzy Brzęczek, and they steered safely through qualifying to reach this summer’s tournament.

But, despite Poland winning their group with relative ease, Brzęczek was replaced in January by former Portugal international Paulo Sousa.

On the pitch, matters have been more stable for Poland and their rebuilt squad features a number of promising prospects, many of whom ply their trade in Europe’s top five leagues.

Undoubtedly all eyes will focus on star striker Robert Lewandowski, who has so far only scored twice for his country in three major tournaments.
