Following the traditional opening ceremony, Gary Lineker introduces live coverage of the opening match of the 2012 European Championships: the Group A clash between co-hosts Poland and 2004 winners Greece in Warsaw.

Neither team is expected to go far in the tournament, though Poland could be buoyed by noisy home support and also boast the outstanding young Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny in their ranks. The Greece squad does not sparkle with individual talent, but their players always work hard for each other – as their qualification proved.

Expert studio analysis comes from Alan Hansen and Lee Dixon, with match commentary from Steve Wilson and Mark Bright.
