On Wednesday, Poland became the first nation in Euro 2012 to announce their provisional squad for the tournament.

Coach Franciszek Smuda chose a squad that features many of the biggest stars in Polish football alongside some major surprises. Stars such as Arsenal's Wojciech Szczęsny and Borussia Dortmund trio Łukasz Piszczek, Jakub Błaszczykowski and Robert Lewandowski all made the squad and will be among the biggest stars in the tournament.

Smuda chose a roster of 26 players plus seven reserves, all of whom could participate for Poland in just over a month.

When selecting this roster, Smuda made a nod toward choosing younger players, saying, "I tried to pick young players not only for Euro but for the future as well. These tournaments always create new names and I believe that two or three or them will be Polish. If we're successful then my players will be heroes, with me in their shadow."

Lets take a look at Poland's Euro 2012 roster.
