Aside from the standout teams of the 1970s and their Olympic success, this era of Polish football is emerging as one of the most consistent in their national team's history.
Making it out of the group is a must for Poland
Three back to back Euro tournaments and present in Russia at the World Cup, but Poland have failed to make it out of the group stage on all but one occasion.
Manager Paulo Sousa will have a task on his hands given a lack of experience, and recent results have demonstrated how a lot of work is to be done. Poland beat middling to lower ranked nations but get done over by the more established.
- Coach: Paulo Sousa
- Journey to Euro 2021: Winner Group G
- Top goalscorer in qualifying: Robert Lewandowski (6 goals)
- Appearances at the Euros: 3
- Best Euros finish: Quarter final 2016
- World ranking: 21
How will Poland line up?
Bundesliga and Bayern Munich marksman Robert Lewandowski is first name on the list as captain and outright star player. It gets a bit mixed after that. Piatek has gone off the boil since leaving Milan but can also be dangerous giving them options up front, also look out for Marseille's Milik.
Sousa seems to favour a 3-4-3 approach, looking to utilise attacking options although it can leave them exposed at the back. Unfortunately Poland do not have quality through the ranks, but there a few familiar names to Premier League fans of past and present.
What are Poland's chances?
Poland absolutely have to rediscover the spark and the form that led them to the QFs in France back in 2016 and that saw them top their qualifying group. Will they do that? Probably not. Sousa has struggled since his appointment earlier in the year and has not found a working formula. They will look to be second best in their group after Spain. Slovakia shouldn't be a huge problem, but they absolutely have to beat a resilient Sweden to get out of this group.

Slipping into Euro 2021 through the Nations League side door, Slovakia are making there second appearance in a row at the European Championships. Last time out they made it out of the group and reached the round of 16. It's not an impossible prospect but it will be tough going.
Manager Stefan Tarkovic has already landed himself in UEFA's naughty books by not submitting his finalised squad in time. New in the job following on from Pavel Hapel's sacking following a poor showing in the Nations League most recently, Tarkovic needs to get this one right.
Hamsik showing up in Sweden is a piece of spymaster wizardry
Slovakia are one the lowest ranked teams in the tournament but couldn't have asked for a better group. Spain have been off the boil in recent years and can be got to, Sweden don't exactly light the world on fire, and Poland are no world beaters.
- Coach: Stefan Tarkovic
- Journey to Euro 2021: Playoff winners
- Top goalscorer in qualifying: Robert Bozenik (3 goals)
- Appearances at the Euros: 1
- Best Euros finish: Round of 16 2016
- World ranking: 36
How will Slovakia line up?
Tarkovic appears to a favour a 4-3-2-1 formation to maximise their attacking potential but also providing stability at the back. So far it's served him well, earning a victory in qualifying for the World Cup against Russia, but Slovakia have struggled to go all the way and finish the game off.
Captain Marek Hamsik has recently returned from China to join Swedish side IFK Gothenburg in a bid to secure first team football before the Euros. It could however be simply a ploy to infiltrate the enemy given Sweden are their opponents.
Expect to see Feyenoord's Bozenik upfront and Inter defender Milan Skriniar and Lazslo Benes from FC Augsburg. Slovakia have a great mix of experience and youth which should serve them well.
What are Slovakia's chances?
Slovakia are one of the more underwhelming outfits to grace this summer's Euros. They struggle to score more than what is required and overall they lack quality through the squad. Tarkovic himself is new to international management but then so is his opposite number Sousa for Poland. Slovakia will have to make it count against Poland and Sweden. If they're successful in stifling opposition they could make it through. They currently have some of the highest odds of any to make it out of their group and to lift the trophy.

Stop the presses! Spain have shunned Sergio Ramos and haven't picked any Real Madrid players in their squad at all! Manager Luis Enrique is already making headlines before the tournament given (not so) surprising squad choices. The fact is it's time for Spain to let go of the past and to forge a new path.
Spain are looking to boost national morale this summer
Spain charge into this summer's Euros with their heads held high. After an abysmal World Cup campaign marred by scandal, former Barcelona ace Luis Enrique has brought a sense of calm, purpose and tactical stability to the Spain setup.
Spain are finally ticking but this tournament will be the true test
The Spanish topped their qualifying group with ease and have since pushed on through the pandemic with a favourable Nations League campaign and World Cup qualifying victories.
They have only been beaten once in the last twelve in a surprise 1-0 loss to Shevchenko's Ukraine but have since stabilised and smashed the Germans 6-0 in Seville.
- Coach: Luis Enrique
- Journey to Euro 2021: Winners Group F
- Top goalscorer in qualifying: Morata, Sergio Ramos, Rodrigo (4 goals)
- Appearances at the Euros: 10
- Best Euros finish: Winners 1964, 2008, 2012
- World ranking: 6
How will Spain line up?
The manager has dabbled with formations like Dali did with canvas strokes. 4-3-3, 4-2-3-1, the list goes on but don't expect anything too surreal this summer. This Spain squad will be kept on their toes with not so many guaranteed starters.
Having said that expect David De Gea between the sticks, with Thiago and Koke occupying midfield roles. Moreno has been scoring and had a favourable season also.
Morata is most likely to occupy the top spot as long time provider of goals throughout recent months.
What are Spain's chances?
Quite rightly Spain are going into the tournament as one of the outside favourites. Luis Enrique has some serious experience under his belt at the pinnacle of the game both as a player and coach. He has made big selection calls and you would expect them to pay off. The last generation of players is a tough act to follow but if anyone can turn it on this summer it's the Spanish. Don't be surprised to see them make it to the semis at least.

Sweden have been handed tough tasks in the last few years but for the most part they've stepped up. A quarter final finish in Russia three years ago at the expense of Germany in their group was a major coup. That's why the Swedes will fancy themselves this time round.
You wouldn't say Janne Andersson's Sweden are capable of beating anyone on their day but they have got what it takes to make big opposition march to their own beat.
The Swedes rely on familiar faces and old heads - unexciting but effective
A disappointing spate of results post-World Cup in the Nations League should be viewed in the light of the fact they were set up against World Champions France, European Champions Portugal and World Cup finalists Croatia.
That being said results have stabilised most recently in World Cup qualification, albeit against lesser opposition.
- Coach: Janne Andersson
- Journey to Euro 2021: 2nd Group F
- Top goalscorer in qualifying: Robin Quaison (5 goals)
- Appearances at the Euros: 6
- Best Euros finish: Semi final 1992
- World ranking: 18
How will Sweden line up?
Andersson has picked experienced heads to the level of being derided in some quarters at home. An ageing Andreas Granqvist in particular has been a source of frustration for some who would like to see more youth blooded in.
Sweden have kept four clean sheets in a row. Expect to see a strong back four and Robin Olsen between the sticks. Midfield is perhaps the most exciting area for Sweden with the likes of RB Leipzig's Emil Forsberg and Juventus ace Dejan Kulusevski looking to break through the lines and provide service to the front men.
Marcus Berg is a steady feature of Andersson's teams while youngster Alexander Isak has had a commendable season for Real Sociedad. Robin Quaison has also been on the scoresheet for Sweden recently, but altogether their front line lacks that extra edge.
How are Sweden's chances?
A lot of chat surrounding Zlatan Ibrahimovic's fabled return to national affairs gave way to injury, and manager Janne Andersson has opted for his old guard. There are many survivors of three years ago and Andersson has been conservative in his selections over the past few months. It means Sweden go into the tournament with a wealth of experience against tough opposition and as act as one of the most cohesive units in the tournament. Expect them to make it out of the group again. They have a lot of grit and more to offer than both Slovakia and Poland.
