Poland trio gearing up to face Greece

Robert Lewandowski,Marcin Wasilewski and Jakub Błaszczykowski spoke to UEFA.com after Poland's 4-0 defeat of Andorra as they looked forward to getting UEFA EURO 2012 started.

Poland's final preparation match before they co-host UEFA EURO 2012 resulted in a comfortable 4-0 victory against Andorra. Three of the scorers, Ludovic Obraniak got the other, spoke to UEFA.com after the match and their thoughts are below.

Robert Lewandowski, Poland forward
We are very fresh and we know our objectives. I think our preparations have been very good indeed. And the last week before the tournament, we are expected to have our game plan ready. We've had plenty of training, and I think now we have reached peak form.

We are aware of the fact that there is more and more pressure on us, but we also know what we are playing for. We need to take it easy, focus on our targets, and we need to know what we are playing for.

Marcin Wasilewski, Poland defender
The defence is a very important element, and if we do our job well, every single player is able to play better. It is important that our team have achieved this very clear and satisfactory result. The coming matches against potentially stronger teams will be a confirmation of the form we are in.

There is huge pressure on us, a lot of expectation from our fans; it is still a great question mark what we will achieve during the tournament, but we know our objectives and we are going to do our best. I am very optimistic. The first match against Greece will be the most important one for us and is a must-win

Jakub Błaszczykowski, Poland midfielder
We shouldn't draw too many conclusions [from this result]. I think the most important match is the one against Greece, and that will show us what position we’re in. We had plenty of chances to score today. We took advantage of 4 of them, but there were many more. I think we can be happy with our performance.

I have a lot of hopes before this tournament, and I think it is going to be an important step in our careers. Maybe every one of us will have an important experience.
