POL V SIN ( Pool A ) Hero FIH Road to London (Men) Delhi 2012 (1)
Match Review POL - SIN 11-3
Poland took time to get into their match against Singapore, working the ball around patiently in the opening stages. Eventually, Szymon OSZYJCCZYK opened the scoring in the 9th minute, but it took his side another 15 minutes to score their second goal through Michal NOWAKOWSKI.
Poland were totally controlling the proceedings but did not seem in a hurry to score the goals which could crucially boost their goal difference, something which Canada had done a day earlier. Miroslaw JUSZCZAK added a penalty-corner in the dying seconds of the first half ensure that Poland went into the break with a comfortable 3-goal lead, but Singapore surprised their opponents early in second period when Mohamad Farhan KAMSANI, scored from open play following some lapse Polish defending.
Singapore scored another field goal later in the period, a striked which finally seemed to wake Poland up. They then started to play, and score, at a faster pace against a young Singaporean team that faded. The final score was another large one against Singapore (11-3).
Player of the Match was Waldemar RATAJ of Poland.
