Poland vs Slovakia live streaming: Preview
Will Poland deliver in a major tournament this time?
Three years ago, the Eagles crashed out of the World Cup in the group stages, losing their first two games before winning a dead-rubber against Japan in Volgograd.
Since then, they’ve made not one but two managerial changes.
Adam Nawałka was sacked immediately after that tournament with his successor, Jerzy Brzęczek, getting the boot at the start of 2021.
Paulo Sousa is now the man tasked with turning this talented group of players into a cohesive, successful team.
As usual, the White and Reds eased through qualifying, topping Group G with eight wins out of ten, finish 11 points clear of third.
This means Poland have now qualified for four successive Euros.
But, their form since qualifying hasn’t been quite as impressive.
They finished third in their UEFA Nations League A group with both wins coming against relegated Bosnia & Herzegovina.
Then, in March’s World Cup Qualifiers, a 3-0 victory over Andorra came in between a 3-3 draw in Hungary and a 2-1 loss in England.
This is concerning as Poland’s recent record at major tournaments is underwhelming.
Of the six tournaments they’ve qualified for since 1986, they’ve gone out in the group phase five times, Euro 2016 being the exception when they were eliminated in the quarter-finals.
With Wojciech Szczęsny in goal and Europe’s deadliest forward, Robert Lewandowski, leading the attack, Poland should be difficult to beat.
Will they make a winning start to Euro 2020 in their first match in Russia since that shambolic World Cup adventure?
Can Slovakia make a positive start?
Slovakia meanwhile are looking to silence those people who are labelling them as one of the weakest teams at the tournament.
The Falcons got here via the back door, beating Republic of Ireland and then Northern Ireland in the play-offs last Autumn.

This will be Slovakia’s third major tournament appearance since independence, following on from World Cup 2010 and Euro 2016.
At both of those, they reached the round of 16 and a repeat of that would be seen as a successful campaign.
The turbulence Slovakia have endured recently is epitomised by the fact that Štefan Tarkovič only took over in November 2020.
His predecessor, Pavel Hapal was sacked just a week after the semi-final win over Ireland with Tarkovič’s first match the final in Northern Ireland.
In total, Slovakia have only won eight of their last 23 competitive games which does not bode well for this tournament.
Captain Marek Hamšík, now 33, as always will be their talisman.
His recent club employment has taken him far and wide; after leaving Dàlián Pro in China in March, he spent two months with IFK Göteborg in Sweden and will join Turkish outfit Trabzonspor after the Euros.
Nevertheless, he remains a national team stall-wart and will be looking to add to his 26 goals for his country.
The other teams in Group E are Spain and Sweden so Slovakia are by far and away the weakest of this particular quartet.
Nevertheless, with the four best-ranked third-place finishers getting through, if they could pull of a surprise win in Saint Petersburg, they’d be in a great position to potentially sneak through.
Who will make a winning start at Krestovsky Stadium?
Prediction: Poland 2-0 Slovakia
These two last met in World Cup 2010 qualifying with Slovakia winning both meetings en route to qualifying for the tournament in South Africa.
Robert Lewandowski has scored 66 international goals against 29 different opponents and is looking to add Slovakia to that list.
