Poland vs Russia Preview

The second game of the day will be held in Warsaw as co-hosts Poland, face top of the table side Russia.

The Russians were very impressive on the opening night and looked contenders for the title, they were lethal in front of goal and their performance would have made the other nations sit up and take notice. Poland drew their opening game with Greece, despite an impressive first half display they were made to pay for their missed chances as the Greeks battled back in the second half.

Russia are massive favorites for this game and with Poland missing Wojciech Szczesny through suspension, the hosts could be even more exposed at the back. The Polish will have to perform the way they did in the first half of the opening game, to stand any chance of an upset here, even then the Russians would need to have an off day.

I can't see past Russia to be honest, they are by far the best team in this group and will have too much firepower. Poland will be in the mix for the second spot with the Czech Republic and Greece but I feel that the Czechs will also be too much for them in the final game.
