Poland host Iceland in an international friendly scheduled to take place on Tuesday evening.

The Poles are coming off a 1-1 draw with Russia. Jakub Swierczok put Paulo Sousa's team ahead in the fourth minute, but Vyacheslav Karavayev equalized a few minutes later as the Russians held on for a draw.

Poland will be part of Group E at the Euros, which will also constitute 2012 winners Spain, Slovakia and Sweden. They have a strong roster featuring the likes of Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski and Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski. The Poles are expected to reach at least the knockout phase of the tournament.

Meanwhile, Iceland failed to qualify for the Euros. Iceland were victorious in their last game, narrowly beating the Faroe Islands 1-0. Mikael Anderson scored the eventual winner in the 70th minute, ensuring that Iceland got their second win in their last six matches.
