Euro 2012 Build-Up: When Poland Faced Greece In 1986

Posted: Updated:

Poland and Greece meet one another in a competitive match by the Baltic Sea tonight for the first time since their 1986 European Championship qualification match for the 1988 tournament.

The duo have faced one another since in qualifying games, however those two fixtures were with the aim of progressing to the 1988 Olympics in Seoul.

Most recently they met in March last year in Larissa to play out a goalless bore draw, living up to tournament predictions that both sides would struggle for goals.

So we've rewound the clock back almost 26 years to the teams' encounter in Poznan, ahead of tonight's Euro 2012 curtain-raiser.
