Any injuries to worry about?

Poland: Nothing major to worry about for Czeslaw Michniewicz.

However, Kamil Glik did take two heavy blows to the head against Mexico and will be monitored in the build-up to the game.

Saudi Arabia: Yasser Al-Shahrani will miss the game after a sickening blow to the face against Argentina.

Al-Shahrani required surgery after leaving on a stretcher having collided with his own goalkeeper, Mohammed Al-Owais.

Who will be the star men?

Poland: Robert Lewandowski, it has to be.

Missed penalty or not, the Barcelona star is comfortably one of the best strikers on the planet – one off day won't change that.

Saudi Arabia: Salem Al-Dawsari has long been his nation's talisman.

He scored the winner against Argentina and will be looking to add to his tally in this one.
