Poland will likely utilise a five-man midfield, leaving room for just one solitary striker.
This would be a wise choice by coach Franciszek Smuda as his team genuinely isn't the strongest in the tournament. Nevertheless, as host nations, they must avoid embarrassment and secure qualification from the group stages by keeping it tight and organised.
The strength of Poland's right side continues here as Blaszczykowski mans the right wing and provides a fantastic, versatile option.
Dudka is one of the most experienced players in the party and will turn out in central midfield alongside Polanski. The third central midfield slot is up for grabs, but Wolski—a late and surprise addition to the squad—probably isn't in contention.
Finally, Bordeaux winger Obraniak is their strongest option on the left flank.
Starters: Obranik, Dudka, Mierzejewski, Polanski, Blaszczykowski
