2002 World Cup -- First Round Matches Pedro Pauletta Pounces For Portugal

Monday June 10th, 2002

Portugal vs Poland
Jeonju -- (4-0)

Poland approached the game with three strikers, while Portugal hoped Luis Figo would have a better game than he did against America.

Leading Goalscorers -- GOAL -- 1-0
Pedro Pauleta drove the ball between a diving Jerzy Dudek and his right post to put Portugal ahead on fourteen minutes.

The rain started to come down stronger and made the playing conditions harder as Hugh Dallas produced four yellow cards in ten minutes; three of them going to Portugal.

Poland may have started the game hoping for goals from at least one of their three strikers, but without much service they were still in a drought.

Half-time: Portugal 1 -- Poland 0

Vitor Baia again looked less than confident going up for crosses and Poland should have been looking to send more of them in to make him feel uncomfortable, instead of trying to shoot directly at him.

Leading Goalscorers -- GOAL -- 2-0
Pauleta doubled the score on 65 minutes; getting in the box to slide the ball between Marek Kozminski and Jerzy Dudek.

Leading Goalscorers -- GOAL -- 3-0
Pauleta earned his hat-trick in the 77th minute -- turning Tomasz Waldoch twice before shooting across Jerzy Dudek.

Leading Goalscorers -- GOAL -- 4-0
Rui Costa rounded up a great Portuguese performance against a lackluster Poland by latching onto Capucho's perfect return pass -- 88 mins.

Rui Costa could have made it 5-0 in the last minute of normal time but took too long trying to go alone and his final shot was cleared off the line.

Poland ran out of ideas and kissed their World Cup tournament good-bye, while Portugal still have to beat South Korea or hope that Poland can beat the United States if Portugal draw with the hosts.

Final Score:
Portugal 4 -- Poland 0
