Two penalty corner drag-flicks from Victor Charlet enabled France to collect their first Pool A points at the FINTRO Hockey World League Semi-Finals in Antwerp, seeing off Poland 4-1 to move within touching distance of a place in the event quarter-finals.

Les Bleues took the lead in the second quarter thanks to a penalty stroke from Hugo Genestet, who sent a low effort past into the bottom right corner of Meciej Pacanowski’s goal.

France made it 2-0 in the third quarter through Charlet before clever work from Krystian Makowski created a simple tap in for Maciej Wejezowski to reduce the deficit ahead of the fourth quarter.

Poland came within inches of levelling the scores early in the fourth quarter when Tomasz Gorny hit the crossbar, but a yellow card awarded to Arkadiusz Brozek proved to be costly for the Poles with Jean-Laurent Kieffer and Charlet killing the game off with late strikes.

“It is very exciting for us because we know that we can do very well in this tournament, so it is good to take a step closer to the quarter finals”, said two goal hero Victor Charlet after the match. “Winning games like this is a good achievement, and I think we could have done better against India and it is great to have recovered after our big loss against Australia, so it was important to get the three points. Now we will focus on our next match against Pakistan, and we want to beat them. After what we showed against India, I think we are capable of it.”
