Poland vs Greece – Match preview and team news

Euro 2012 gets underway in Warsaw today as co-hosts Poland kick-off against Greece.

The two teams have had very different form in the past six months. Poland have warmed up for the competition with three friendly international victories in the past three weeks, against Latvia, Slovakia and Andorra. They also did not concede any goals in this time.

Expectations are high for the co-hosts, who are in arguably the group that gives them the best chances of progression, with Russia and Czech Republic the other members of Group A.

Greece meanwhile have only recorded one victory in the last five games, that being their most recent warm-up friendly last Thursday, when they defeated Armenia 1-0.

As far as team news is concerned, Greece have worries over captain and right-sided defender Vassilis Torosidis, who is struggling with a knee injury. In addition, Sotiris Ninis has a shoulder injury – both players are likely to face fitness tests before the game.

Poland have worries over central defender Damien Perquis, who has a fractured elbow.
