Senegal coach Aliou Cisse benched his regular captain Cheikhou Kouyate of West Ham, giving his star player Mane added responsibility as the West Africans open their World Cup campaign.
Veteran Poland defender Kamil Glik failed to recover from a shoulder injury for the match and was also named on the bench by coach Adam Nawalka, who reverted to a four-man defence in his absence.
As expected, Bayern Munich sharpshooter Robert Lewandowski leads the forward line and captains a Polish team hoping to improve on third-place finishes in 1974 and 1982.
The match features a mouth-watering showdown between Lewandowski and Mane, two of European club football's most dangerous forwards.
