TEAMtalk columnist Danny Mills is out in Poland at Euro 2012 and he gives us his first thoughts on Warsaw and how he thinks England will play.
I'm currently out in Poland for the Euros, but I'll be keeping a diary to keep you bang up to speed with the inside track at the tournament.
Give my thoughts a read and let me know what you think in the comments box below - Danny.
I'm currently in Warsaw getting ready for the opening game. The square near the stadium is starting to get very busy. It's going to be a fantastic atmosphere. It's not the greatest of opening games, Poland against Greece, but the stadium looks absolutely magnificent, it will be a great opening ceremony.
The locals have been absolutely fine; there's been no problems at all. We've had one or two issues with taxi drivers trying to rip us off, as you'd expect. If Poland get off to a good start, the atmosphere in the square will be very excitable. I think people here are now looking forward to it getting underway.
Happy England camp
Roy Hodgson has been hit by massive injuries to key players. Now going into it, expectations for England are pretty low. We have to expect that it will be a defensive display. I would expect Stewart Downing and possibly James Milner to be the two wide players, who'll get forward when the time is right but will also be expected to track back.
In terms of preparation it's very different to the World Cup in South Africa, they're based in the centre of town and are quite accessible. They are going to be in and around town, completely different to when they were in Rustenburg when they were holed up away from everything.
Roy has given them what they wanted, they seem relaxed; the camp seems happy, so hopefully from that side of it Hodgson has got it right.
"Our condolences go out to Jermain Defoe and thoughts go out to Jermain and his family. It's a very, very sad time for him. But, who knows, it might just give him that little bit extra of a spur on to do well.
UEFA have to crack down on racism
Everyone is aware that racism is a potential problem. It's not just a football issue; it's more of a social issue. This has developed over years and years, so it's not something that can be put right over night. UEFA have to crack down on it, certainly if it happens during matches.
Players will have to respond in the right way and trust that any abuse like that will be punished; hopefully by the police but certainly sanctions by UEFA.
