Werder Bremen defender Sebastian Boenisch has been included in the Poland squad after more than a year out because of a serious knee injury. Lille forward Ireneusz Jelen has been recalled for the first time since February 2011.
Portugal coach Paulo Bento had two last-minute worries in the build-up to this match, as Silvestre Varela and Carlos Martins both picked up injuries at the weekend. Toulouse midfielder Paulo Machado is the only player called up as a replacement, meaning Portugal will take a 22-man squad to Warsaw.
Benfica striker Nelson Oliveira could make his international debut for the senior squad after shining for the national team's youth ranks at the Under-20 World Cup in the summer.
