Sweden national team coach Janne Andersson believes that his players have to contain Robert Lewandowski to beat Poland at the UEFA Euro 2020.

Group phase draw took place on Saturday in Copenhagen. Sweden will face Poland, Spain and play-off winner B.

“We played against Spain in the qualifiers and we know what mistakes we made, so I hope we can solve them. I would pay more attention to Poland. It’s a great football nation and the encounter against them would be as difficult as the match against Spain. It will be our last clash in the group phase so It can be crucial. However, I prefer to start to work instead of thinking about the draw,” Andersson was quoted as saying by NTV.

“We have six months to figure out how to stop Lewandowski. I don’t have wide knowledge about Poland, but I’m aware of the fact that he scores a lot of goals and he is one of the best snipers in the world,” added the coach in the interview for Aftonbladet.

The 16th UEFA European Championship, which runs from June 12 to July 12, 2020, will be played in 12 cities across the continent to celebrate the tournament’s 60th birthday.
