All the action from Portugal's resounding 4-0 win over Poland, that condemns Jerzy Engel's side to an early exit from the World Cup.

1422 BST: The whistle goes, bringing an end to a demoralising defeat for Poland that sees them crash out of the World Cup, but finally kick-starts Portugal's campaign.
Full time Portugal 4-0 Poland

90 mins: Rui Costa wastes a chance to add to his tally, failing to make strong enough contact with the ball which is cleared off the line by the Polish defence. The Portugal striker lies on the ground in disgust.

86 mins: Rui Costa completes the rout, getting on the end of Nuno Capucho's cross to leave Jerzy Dudek with no chance.

84 mins: Chances go begging at either end with Poland's Marcin Zewlakow and Pauleta both firing wide from good positions.

82 mins: Pawel Kryszalowicz manages to miss the target from four yards out, striking the ball over the crossbar. His effort sums up Poland's evening.

78 mins: Polish heads begin to drop as they contemplate the long journey home.

77 mins: Pauleta twists the Poland defence inside out as he completes his hat-trick with a fine solo effort.
Portugal 3-0 Poland

74 mins: Petit picks up the ball on the edge of the Poland area, dummies and unleashes a fierce shot that Jerzy Dudek appears to tip just past the post. However, no corner is given.

70 mins: Poland take off Michal Zewlakow and bring on Tomasz Rzasa in an attempt to shore up their defence.

68 mins: Sergio Conceicao is substituted allowing Nuno Capucho a run-out for the final 20 minutes.

66 mins: Portugal seize the moment and almost extend their lead further. Good work by the effervescent Pauleta sees him set up Luis Figo, who fires a shot past the stranded Jerzy Dudek only for it to rebound off the post.

65 mins: Pauleta scores a second for Portugal from Luis Figo's cross after Poland's Emmanuel Olisadebe loses possession again.
Portugal 2-0 Poland

63 mins: Another substitution for Portugal, who introduce Paulo Bento for Frechaut.

60 mins: Rui Costa comes on for a dejected-looking Joao Pinto, who does not appear to be carrying an injury.

59 mins: Pawel Kryszalowicz puts the ball in the back of the Portugal net but is adjudged to have fouled Vitor Baia in the build-up.

55 mins: Jacek Krzynowek squanders a great chance to test Vitor Baia, firing wide from inside the area. Poland bring on Marcin Zewlakow for Maciej Zurawski as they go in search of the equaliser.

53 mins: Jerzy Dudek is almost punished for an error on the edge of his area, but no Portugal player is on hand to profit.

50 mins: The rain-soaked pitch is holding the ball up and Joao Pinto takes advantage but his touch lets Jerzy Dudek come out to smother the ball in the Poland area.

48 mins: Despite their lead, Portugal are yet to gain a stranglehold on the game.

1334 BST: The second half kicks off with the players wearing dry shirts - the only change of note. Poland must not lose if they are to avoid an early World Cup exit.

1317 BST: Portugal go in 1-0 up at half time courtesy of Pauleta's strike in a game that has seen more yellow cards - five so far - than clear-cut chances.
Half time: Portugal 1-0 Poland

43 mins: Fernando Couto makes a good defensive header which Vitor Baia gathers confidently. The Portugal keeper looks far more assured after a hapless display during the 3-2 defeat to the USA.

40 mins: Joao Pinto writhes around in agony after being stamped on by Tomasz Hajto, who escapes punishment. Joao Pinto leaves the pitch again on a stretcher.

38 mins: Arkadiusz Bak is shown a yellow card for a bad challenge on Joao Pinto, who is stretchered off. Luis Figo fires in a low free-kick but Jerzy Dudek saves well.

35 mins: Jerzy Dudek punches Luis Figo's free-kick out of harm's way but Poland concede a corner.

31 mins: Rui Jorge is late with his tackle on Maciej Zurawski and is cautioned. Referee Hugh Dallas will have to allow for the treacherous conditions, otherwise there will not be 22 players left on the pitch come full time.

30 mins: Pauleta chases a defence-splitting pass and almost connects but is thwarted by Jerzy Dudek, who is quick off his line to thwart the threat.

26 mins: The rain is falling heavily but does not dampen the challenges as Jorge Costa becomes the third player to be booked for foul play.

24 mins: Frechaut is booked for a lunging tackle, but Poland waste the resulting free-kick.

23 mins: Pauleta is causing the Polish defence all sorts of problems with his pace and fires another shot over the crossbar.

20 mins: Piotr Swierczewski is booked for pushing in the Poland area in the build-up to a Luis Figo free-kick.

16 mins: Arkadiusz Bak comes on for the injured Radoslaw Kaluzny as Poland attempt to get back into the game quickly.

14 mins: Joao Pinto executes a fabulous pass to Pauleta in the Poland area and the Portugal striker fires an excellent shot past Jerzy Dudek.
Portugal 1-0 Poland

11 mins: Nuno Frechaut, a replacement for Beto Severo, is stretchered off after colliding with Emmanuel Olisadebe.

9 mins: Pauleta places a shot wide of the Polish goal with Jerzy Dudek stranded. A better period of possession and play by Portugal.

7 mins: Rodoslaw Kaluzny is given a final warning by referee Hugh Dallas after yet another clumsy challenge.

5 mins: Sergio Conceicao strikes a lame shot at Jerzy Dudek in the Poland goal after a quick break upfield.

4 mins: Rodoslaw Kaluzny fires an long-range shot over the Portuguese goal as Poland make a bright start with Emmanuel Olisadebe posing a threat with his pace.

2 mins: Portugal's under-fire keeper Vitor Baia makes a poor clearance, but Poland are unable to profit. The slippery surface is making it difficult for players to keep their footing.

1230 BST: Scottish referee Hugh Dallas gets the game under way. The wet conditions could prove testing for both sets of players.

Portugal: Vitor Baia, Jorge Costa, Fernando Couto (capt), Luis Figo, Joao Pinto, Pauleta, Paulo Bento, Sergio Conceicao, Petit, Frechaut, Rui Jorge.

Poland: Jerzy Dudek, Michal Zewlakow, Tomasz Hajto, Piotr Swierczewski, Rodoslaw Kaluzny, Emmanuel Olisadebe, Tomasz Waldoch (capt), Jacek Krzynowek, Maciej Zurawski, Pawel Swierczewski, Marek Kozminski.

Referee: Hugh Dallas (Scotland).
