Robert Lewandowski has had an underwhelming Euro 2016 so far. But it is time he starts performing for his country. Bundesliga’s top scorer from last season will need to be at his clinical best. His country needs him when he leads Poland against Switzerland in the Round of 16 clash.

Switzerland’s best player at Euro 2016 has been Granit Xhaka. He will need to continue his rich vein of form if Switzerland need to progress in to the quarter finals. His calmness under pressure and leadership skills will come in handy for Switzerland. A lot will at stake in this high pressure clash between Switzerland and Poland.

Grzegorz Krychowiak

After a promising display against Germany, Krychowiak provided a masterful performance against Ireland. His calmness under pressure was one of many attributes in an eye catching display against the rigid Irish team. His displays will go on to have a big say in what Poland can accomplish against the Swiss. A strong showing in the Euro 2016 Switzerland vs Poland match  is important. It will go a long way in ensuring his team progresses through to the last 8.

The man who will be looking to provide the goals for this Switzerland team, Shaqiri will be looking to get one past the favorites early in the match. With Switzerland desperately looking for goals, Shaqiri and his team mates will be trying to past the Polish defense at every opportunity. He will have plenty of opportunities against a weak polish defense.

Arkadius Milik

Milik has been hot and cold in the two matches so far at the Euros. Poland would expect him to deliver sooner rather than later on a much more consistent basis. Arkadius Milik should be looking to score more goals for Poland. They need him if they need to progress further in this competition. He will have plenty of opportunities against a weak polish defense.
