Euro 2012: First teams arrive in Poland and Ukraine


With only four days to go before the main event, 1992 European Champions Denmark arrived in Poland on Monday to prepare for their Euro 2012 group matches.

Marten Olsen’s men, who have been drawn in Group B, the so-called “Group of Death”, open their campaign against the Netherlands on the 9th of June before facing Portugal and Germany.

Joachim Löw’s men arrived in Gdansk earlier today with Bayern Munich’s Bastian Schweinsteiger having received the go ahead from Die Mannschaft’s medical staff.

The 27 year old, who recovered from a calf injury just in time for the tournament, will partner Sami Khedira and Mesut Ozil in midfield in a bid to hand Germany a fourth European crown.

The Netherlands also arrived at their base and will start their Euro 2012 campaign with almost the same squad which lost 1-0 to Spain in the World Cup final in South Africa 2 years ago.

The tournament kicks off in Warsaw on the 8th of June.
