Day 2 of World League Round 2 in Saint-Germain started under bright sunshine, a welcomed change from the rain on opening day. Both teams showed up in an attacking mood; Scotland immediately pushed back Belgium on their heels and forced two penalty-corners. Their options generated good shots but were well defended. The Scots kept pressing high to try and prevent their more experienced opponents to develop their game, however Belgium progressively took control of play, passing the ball away from the Scottish press. 

Belgium opened the scoring in the 10th minute, Sebastien Dockier managing to propel high in goal a messy ball bouncing in the circle. He doubled his tally on the next action and the Scots were suddenly facing a 2-goal deficit and a steep road ahead. Belgium were unsuccessful on a series of penalty-corner, but Florent Van Aubel increased the gap to 3-0 in the 20th minute, taking more wind out of the Scottish sail.

Scotland never gave up and were rewarded in the final minutes of the period, with Callum Duke at the conclusion of a swift movement penetrating the circle on the right. But there was still enough time for Tom Boon to add a penalty-corner on the buzzer and half-time was reached on a 4-1 score reflecting well the period.

Belgium continued on their momentum and Loïck Luypaert scored early with a powerful penalty-corner flick high over the head of the defenders. Tom Boon followed suit soon after with a flick perfectly positioned in the top corner of the goal, leaving absolutely no chance to Allan Dick in the Scottish goal for that match.

With time passing, the Scots seemed to feel the effect of their hard match against Canada the day before and play was mostly confined in their half of the pitch. They however defended well, showing good individual technic under pressure and keeping the Belgian attackers at bay. In the final minute, they took advantage of a lack of focus in the Belgian ranks and had a few desperate attempts that came close, but the score did not change until the dying seconds when Tanguy Cosyns pushed the score to 7-1.

 Belgium earned their second win of the competition, leaving Scotland with 2 losses.
