Poland may not be the country that first springs to mind when you think of soccer, but they are hoping to change that fact once the 2016 European Championships has crowned its champion. Euro 2016 is the third time Poland have qualified for the tournament, they finished bottom of their group in both 2008 and 2012. The Poles at -300 to get out of Group C in 2016, and +400 to win the group, although that honor is almost certainly going to be bestowed on Germany.

Poland Online Betting Tips
Should you think Poland can do the unthinkable and win Euro 2016, you can find odds in the region of +4000.
It is easy to label Poland as a one-man team thanks to their talismanic striker Robert Lewandowski. The Bayern Munich forward is one of the best in the business and would be a welcome addition to any soccer side in the world, and one who netted 13 times in 10 games during qualification.
However, Poland’s Kamil Glik continues to shine in Serie A, while both Kuba Blaszczykowski and Grzegorz Krychowiak both have glowing reputations, the latter having won back-to-back Europa League titles with Sevilla.
The spine of the Polish team is strong, and that means they will be a threat to anyone they face. If they can pull themselves out of the tough Group C, nobody is going to want to face a side fronted by the great Lewondowski, that is for sure.
The Germany vs. Poland fixture could be one of the ties of Euro 2016 not least because of past history between the two countries. Poland have several players who ply their trade in the German Bundesliga, which means they will be familiar with how each other plays.
Although we do not expect Poland to progress too deeply at Euro 2016, the +1200 on Robert Lewandowski being the top goalscorer seems like a shrewd bet, especially because he is their go-to man, and is likely to be among the goals against Northern Ireland and Ukraine.
