The Azzurrini had a fantastic start to the tournament on Sunday, fighting back to beat Spain 3-1 with a Federico Chiesa brace and Lorenzo Pellegrini penalty.

Fiorentina star Chiesa is again a key figure in the trident attack, but Milan striker Cutrone and Bologna winger Orsolini step in to replace Moise Kean and Nicolò Zaniolo in the 4-3-3 formation.

Claud Adjapong of Sassuolo replaces Arturo Calabresi at right-back.

Poland have two Serie A representatives in the line-up, Genoa-owned midfielder Filip Jagiello and ex-Sampdoria hitman Dawid Kownacki.

However, they are set out in an ultra-defensive 5-4-1 formation.
