Sweden vs Poland Euro 2020 time, date, channel

The Sweden vs Poland Euro 2020 game starts today (Wednesday, June 23) at 5 p.m. BST / 12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT. In the U.S., it's available on ESPN2. In the U.K., you can watch on ITV4 and the ITV Hub. Full channel details below.

The Sweden vs Poland live stream is starting soon, and it brings you one of the two climactic showdowns of Euro 2020 Group E. While Slovakia vs Spain takes place simultaneously, Sweden will look to secure their top spot in the group; Poland, however, need a win to survive.

Sweden went undefeated in their opening two games, and although a loss against the 4th-placed Poles could have them end the group stage in 2nd, that would still be enough to qualify for the last 16 — and the coveted knockout stage.

Most eyes will therefore be on Poland, to see if they can pull out a win and keep their Euro 2020 dreams alive. Their recent, spirited draw against Spain might give them hope, with world-class forward Robert Lewandowski looking to once again get on the scoresheet.

Here's how they line up:

Sweden (4-4-2): Olsen; Lustig, Lindelof, Danielson, Augistinsson, Larsson, Ekdal, Olsson, Forsberg; Quaison, Isak.

Poland (3-2-4-1): Szczesny; Bereszynski, Glik, Bednarek; Krychowiak, Klich; Jozwiak, Swiderski, Zielinski, Puchacz; Lewandowski. 

The game kicks off today (Wednesday, June 23) at 5 p.m. BST (12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT). The pre-game show, post-match analysis and of course the match itself will be free-to-air, so read on to find out how you can watch the Sweden vs Poland live stream from anywhere.
