Poland qualified for UEFA Euro 2020 with rather ease and they have been regulars in the major tournaments over the last decade. They are placed in a very difficult group I which also contain Spain, Slovakia and Sweden. However under new national team coach “Paulo Souza” Poland are expected at least make it to the first knockout stage.

Robert Lewandowski will captain the side and will be their talisman while players like Krzysztof Piątek, Arkadiusz Milik, Piotr Zieliński and Grzegorz Krychowiak are other experience players which will surely lineup for Poland. Below is the potential 23-man squad for Poland.

Poland National Team Coach: Paulo Souza
Poland let go off the long term head coach Adam Nawalka in 2020 and appointed Portuguese Paulo Souza as his replacement. Poland are likely to keep their traditional 4-4-2 system where Milik or Piatek to play behind record goalscorer Lewandowski. Paulo Souza is rather young in terms of managerial experience but he is known for his very defensive style of play and we can expect Poland as a team very hard to beat in Euro 2020 tournament.
Possible Starting Lineup of Poland In Euro 2020:
Fifa player of the year, Robert Lewandowski is the main stay of Poland national team but they also have a very good players all around the pitch. Krzysztof Piatek and Arkadiusz Milik are the other two players expected to share the goal scoring burden with Poland’s record goal scorer Lewandowski. This is how we expect Poland to line up in their opening game against Slovakia on 14th June 2021.
