Co-hosts Poland are in a far easier group than Ukraine and will expect to progress, especially with Robert Lewandowski leading the line. The 23-year-old topped the Bundesliga’s goalscoring chart, with his 22 goals helping Borussia Dortmund win a second title in a row. He saved the best for last, notching a hat-trick in the German Cup final to thrash Bayern Munich 5-2. Lewandowski’s technique, predominantly when it comes to playing with his back to goal, should take the Poles forward.
