The provisional squad named by Sousa includes well-known faces such as Napoli midfielder Piotr Zieliński and Marseille striker Arkadiusz Milik.

Young guns include Pogoń Szczecin midfielder Kacper Kozłowski, a 17-year-old who has been hailed as "the talent of the century" and drawn interest from clubs such as Manchester United.

Another fresh face is Barnsley defender Michał Helik.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Radosław Majecki, the 27th name on the list, has been called up only for the team's training camp in the western Polish town of Opalenica from May 24 to June 8.

The Poland boss has also named four standby players, among them West Bromwich Albion winger Kamil Grosicki, who was until recently a key member of the national team.

Injured striker Krzysztof Piątek was left out after fracturing his ankle last week with his German club Hertha Berlin.

Sousa is expected to announce the final squad by June 1.

The Polish team will in June face Slovakia, Spain and Sweden in the group stage of this year's European championships, a tournament rescheduled from last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Poland are scheduled to open their Euro group-stage campaign with a fixture against Slovakia at Krestovsky Stadium in the Russian city of St. Petersburg on June 14.

The Poles will next take on Spain at Estadio La Cartuja in Sevilla on June 19 and then play Sweden in St. Petersburg four days later.

Ahead of the European tournament, Poland will play two friendlies on home turf at the start of next month, taking on Russia in Wrocław on June 1 and then Iceland in Poznań on June 8.

Sousa, 50, a Portuguese soccer manager and a former professional player, was in January named as the new manager of the Polish national football team to replace Jerzy Brzęczek.
