Poland have announced their squad for Euro 2020 with Robert Lewandowski captaining the side which takes on Spain, Sweden and Slovakia in Group E.

A notable inclusion is the 17-year-old midfielder Kacper Kozlowski, for whom the country has high hopes after he broke into Pogon Szczecin’s first team this season and picked up one international cap.

There are several names familiar to followers of the Premier League, including West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, Southampton centre-back Jan Bednarek, Leeds midfielder Mateusz Klich and Brighton’s left-sided player Jakub Moder.
