The Euros start the work week with a trio of intriguing matches including Robert Lewandowski and Poland's first match against Slovakia.

Well, so much for England vs. Croatia being the marquee matchup of the weekend. While the Three Lions were an early Phil Foden curler away from fomenting a blowout over a Croatia side that ended their dream run through World Cup 2018, Gareth Southgate's squad barely squeaked by Luka Modric and Croatia, winning the day thanks to a 57th-minute goal from Raheem Sterling.

Fortunately for us neutral observers, Sunday's final two matches were far more entertaining as Austria, North Macedonia, Netherlands and Ukraine put on a show, teaming up for a combined nine goals, with Austria toppling Goran Pandev and North Macedonia 3-1 before Denzel Dumfries delivered a late winner for the Dutch in a surprisingly close 3-2 win over Ukraine.

Will Monday see a similar goal explosion? We're about to find out!

Scotland vs. Czech Republic

Time: 15:00 CET/9:00 EDT | Location: Hampden Park, Glasgow

Patrik Schick, Roma's former €42 million man, and the Czech Republic break the seal on their Euro 2020 campaign with an away fixture against Scott McTominay and the rest of the Tartan Amry at historic Hampden Park. Thanks to their victory over Croatia yesterday, England has an early hold on Group D, so a Scottish victory today could set up a MASSIVE Friday fixture against the Three Lions.

Time: 18:00 CET/12:00 EDT | Location: St. Petersburg Stadium, St. Petersburg

Hey, look at that, a genuine neutral ground matchup! All-world goalscorer Robert Lewandowski leads Poland into St. Petersburg to face Marek Hamsik, Milan Skriniar and the rest of Slovakia in Monday's middle match. While these two nations haven't met since 2013, Slovakia has won three of their past five matches against Poland and could upend Group E with an upset over Poland.

Spain vs. Sweden

Time: 21:00 CET/3:00 EDT | Location: La Cartuja Stadium, Sevilla

La Roja's quest to reclaim their place at the pinnacle of European football begins today when Rodri, Jordi Alba, Gerard Moreno and the rest of Luis Enrique's Spanish side face the Zlatan-less Swedes. Despite missing their most famous player, Sweden has more than enough firepower in the form of transfer “it kid” Alexander Isak, who pumped in 17 goals for Real Sociedad this past season.
