Group Stage (2008, 2012)
After qualifying for the third time in a row, Poland will be looking to get out of the group for the first time in their history after finishing bottom of the group in their first two tournaments. Last tournament was a particularly disappointing one as they were knocked out early on home soil.
How They Got There
Drawn in a qualifying group alongside Germany, Scotland, the Republic of Ireland, Georgia and tournament debutatants Gibraltar, it seemed Poland would be battling for the second-place spot along with Ireland and Scotland.
The Poles made a fast start with a 7-0 win away to Gibraltar and an impressive 2-0 win over Germany in their first two games. Aside from a 3-1 defeat in Germany, they remained solid throughout and sealed qualification with a 2-1 win over Republic of Ireland in Warsaw.
v Germany 2-0 (h), 1-3 (a)
v Republic of Ireland 2-1 (h), 1-1 (a)
v Scotland 2-2 (h), 2-2 (a)
v Georgia 4-0 (h), 4-0 (a)
v Gibraltar 8-1 (h), 7-0 (a)
Bayern Munich forward, Robert Lewandowski, is the main man for Poland. The 27-year-old was the top scorer in qualifying with 13 goals and he will be determined to bring that form into the tournament. Another key player is Sevilla midfielder, Grzegorz Krychowiak, who has established himself as one of the best defensive midfielders in the European game.
