(Reuters) - The following is a factbox on Poland, who are in Group E at this year's European Championship, which kicks off on June 11.
FIFA ranking: 21
Coach: Paulo Sousa
Portuguese Sousa, who won the Champions League as a midfielder with Juventus and Borussia Dortmund, was appointed in January after Jerzy Brzeczek was unexpectedly sacked despite helping Poland qualify for the Euros.
Sousa, who previously managed Girondins Bordeaux, led Poland in their World Cup qualifiers in March where they won one of their three games to sit fourth in their group.
Captain: Robert Lewandowski
Lewandowski is Poland's most-capped player with 118 appearances and their all-time top scorer with 66 goals.
The 32-year-old helped Bayern Munich secure a ninth successive Bundesliga title this season and scored 41 league goals to break Gerd Mueller's 49-year-old Bundesliga scoring record for a single season.
Top player: Grzegorz Krychowiak
Midfielder Krychowiak bagged 11 goals and four assists in all competitions for Lokomotiv Moscow this season as the Russian side finished third in the league. The former Sevilla and Paris St Germain player has four goals in 78 games for Poland.
Poland have played three times at the Euros and were knocked out in the group stages in 2008 and 2012. They reached the quarter-finals in 2016, where they lost to eventual champions Portugal on penalties.
