Day 4 of the Hockey World League Round 2 in Saint-Germain started under a timid sun that could not warm up a temperature unseasonably cool for the season. Both teams needed a few minutes to find their rhythm, then traded shots on goal at both ends but with no real danger for keepers Paulo Nogueira for Portugal and Lukasz Domachowski  for Poland.

Poland progressively became more threatening, and Szymon Hutek, Karol Majchrzak and Krystian Makowsk scored within a few minutes of each other, pushing the score to 3-0 after 15 minutes of play.  This sudden burst of goals took some wind out of the Portuguese sails and pace of play went down a notch.

Portugal had a few opportunities on a series of penalty-corner but could not capitalize and Polish Captain Dariusz Rachwalski promptly added a 4th goal. In the last second of the period, Carlos Silva scored a superb penalty-corner for Portugal, shaving the post out of reach of the Polish keeper, but Poland reached the break with a comfortable 4-1 lead.

Poland benefited from an own goal by a Lusitanian defender early in second period, virtually putting the contest out of reach for Portugal. They never gave up but could not prevent Poland to control play. The Poles added 4 more goals but were denied multiple times by Paulo Nogueira, excellent in the Portuguese goal.

Poland finally earned their first win of the competition on the final score of 9-1.
