Poland Vs. Russia, Euro 2012: Lineups

While the Russian and Polish fans are busy fighting each other, the two countries' teams will play a football match. Whoever thought it smart to not move the fixture off of Russia day should have to answer some questions. Yes, they were drawn into this date by chance, but common sense should allow for a small change of date.

For Poland, they will have to be nearly perfect. Russia are playing superbly and will be as dangerous of an attacking team as there is, requiring the Poles to be strong at the back for a full 90 minutes. Poland could have a way through, though. Robert Lewandowski is tremendous and as good as Russia looked in their opener, they showed that they could be beaten in defense.

Poland (4-2-3-1): Przemyslaw Tyton; Sebastian Boenisch, Gregorz Wasilewski, Damien Perquis, Lukasz Piszczek; Eugen Polanski, Rafal Murwaski; Dariusz Dudka, Ludovic Obrianiak, Jakub Blaszczykowski; Robert Lewandowski.

Russia (4-3-3): Vyacheslav Malafeev; Alexander Anyukov, Sergei Ignashevich, Yuri Zhirkov, Aleksei Berezutski; Roman Shirokov, Igor Denisov, Konstantin Zyranov; Alan Dzagoev, Alexander Kershakov, Andrei Arsahvin.
