Co-hosts Poland wrapped up
preparations for Euro 2012 with a 4-0 romp over Andorra, one of
the weakest international teams, on Saturday.
The Poles will lean heavily on their Borussia Dortmund trio -
striker Robert Lewandowski, captain Jakub Blaszczykowski and
defender Lukasz Piszczek - in the Euros and all three started
Ludovic Obraniak opened the scoring in the 13th minute and
Lewandowski made it 2-0 nine minutes before half-time.
Poland, who have now gone five matches without conceding a
goal, added a third through Blaszczykowski before Marcin
Wasilewski completed the rout with a 77th-minute penalty.
"I'm pleased with the result and that all the players are
okay," said coach Franciszek Smuda.
The Poles have had little to celebrate in recent years but
hopes are high among the fans that Smuda's team can advance
beyond the group stage where they will meet Russia, Czech
Republic and Greece.
The Euros, co-hosted by Ukraine, begin on Friday.
