Warsaw, Poland:

Former European champions Denmark on Monday arrived in Poland to prepare for their Euro 2012 group matches, an AFP photographer at Szczecin airport in the northwest of the country said.

Denmark, champions in 1992 having been called up at the last minute because Yugoslavia were banned over the Balkans War, headed straight to Kolobrzeg, a seaside resort some 150 kilometres (90 miles) away, which will be their base for the duration of the competition.

Denmark have been drawn in Group B, the so-called "Group of Death", with Germany, the Netherlands and Portugal, who are also expected to arrive at their bases on Monday.

Other than co-hosts Poland and Ukraine, the first teams to arrive were the Czech Republic, Russia and Greece.

Poland take on Greece in the tournament curtain-raiser in Warsaw while the Czechs play Russia in Wroclaw, both on Friday.
