POLAND have promised to inflict more misery on Séamus Coleman and his team-mates in Sunday's vital Euro 2016 battle in Dublin.

The Poles come to Dublin 4 as table-toppers and their forward Lukasz Teodorczyk (pictured) is brimming with confidence as he scored for Dynamo Kiev as they dumped Everton and their Irish contingent out of the Europa League last week.

Toffees man Darron Gibson withdrew last night due to injury but Coleman, Aiden McGeady and James McCarthy are all certain to start and Poland have planned another night of anguish.

"I scored for Dynamo against Everton last week and the manager here reminded me that Ireland's right side (Coleman and McGeady) is made up of Everton players," says Teodorczyk, hoping to get the nod to partner Robert Lewandowski up front.

"So this is another chance for me to play against them and, hopefully, beat them. I scored against them so maybe they'll remember me.

"Teams like Ireland prefer a physical style to a technical one and I think we will see that on Sunday.

"We're going for a win and we will have to battle, but we can't let ourselves get provoked and pick up stupid red cards"
