Poland star Maciej Rybus has not played any minutes at Euro 2020 – but his Instagram-beauty girlfriend has certainly been catching the eye.
The 31-year-old has played a role for his country at the tournament this season, starting the 2-1 loss to Slovakia while warming the bench for the 1-1 draw against Spain.
Notching 63 appearances for his country over 12 years, the Lokomotiv Moscow left-back appears to be providing a more advisory role for the team in this major tournament.
While Rybus is not making an impact on the pitch for his country, he has certainly caused a stir in the past with his activities off the pitch.

The defender arrived at current club Lokomotiv after just one season at Lyon in 2017, having made 100-plus appearances for Legia Warsaw and Terek Grozny.
And he had been with former Foto Models Poland contestant Natalia Czubaj, the model regularly sharing snaps with her fiancee on social media.
She stayed in Poland, though, as the defender settled into life back into the Russian Premier League with Lokomotiv.
The full-back, who played against Slovakia at Euro 2020, arrived at Lokomotiv Moscow in 2017 with a fiancee in model Natalia Czubaj
When he went to a restaurant with a friend, that was when Rybus met the woman who would become his current wife Lana.
The stunning Russian beauty, who now has more than 200,000 Instagram followers that enjoy her sexy snaps, was working as manager at the restaurant – and she caught the footballer’s eye.
Speaking to Word newspaper[via Plotek], the Instagram star claims: “He started coming to lunch and dinner and after training. Until I gave him my phone number.”
But he met Russian stunner Lana, who now has 200,000 Instagram followers, when she was manager at a friend's restaurant in Moscow
Seven months after meeting, Rybus proposed to the now-26-year-old – all while being engaged to Czubaj
After just seven months of allegedly meeting with the now-26-year-old, Rybus decided to propose to Lana – and they were married a month later.
It reportedly came as the biggest shock to Czubaj, with media outlets from the country speculating that the model found out about the wedding through themselves.
Videos and images were also shared of the ceremony – which had a big media presence – on Lana’s Instagram pages.
A month later they were married, with Czubaj apparently finding out their mainstream media – and the couple now have two children together

The couple became parents seven months later, rubbing salt into the wounds for Czubaj, as the Russian gave birth to Rybus’ first child Robert.
They decided to tie the knot for a second time in Poland just over a year later, enjoying an ‘intimate’ ceremony but also letting fireworks off.
Rybus also enjoyed the arrival of his second child this January, suggesting that the Poland left-back has well-and-truly moved on from former fiancee Czubaj.
