Tamás Märcz, the federal captain of the men’s national team, has set the stage for his water polo tournament starting next week at the World Cup.

Tamás Märcz announced his list in one of the hotels in the capital, the team, at the World Cup hotel in the capital on Wednesday, in the last selection, besides the goalkeeper Dániel Szakonyi, Erik Molnár, Ákos Konarik, Balázs Erdélyi and Toni were among the field players. Regarding them, the trainer stated, they should not be discouraged, as the European Championship in Split will come shortly after the World Cup, for which they will have the chance to get into the band again.

Tamás Märcz said that with three left-handers, besides the world-class Márton Vámos and Gergő Zalánki, Gergely Burián will cut him to the World Cup, the latter, as well as the second goalkeeper Márton Lévai and Ádám Nagy, can prepare for the first world championship. The specialist mentioned Daniel Angel and Szilárd Jansik separately, whom he would like to play in a much freer role than before.

13 players and two reserves could be nominated for the World Cup – the latter will be Gergő Fekete and Vendvári Vigvári – but the exchange can only take place due to a positive corona virus test. The European champion and Olympic bronze medal team will meet Montenegro next Tuesday in Group A, two days later with Brazil and then with Georgia on Saturday.

In addition to the large pool of the Hajós Swimming Pool, Debrecen, Sopron and Szeged host the group matches of the water polo tournament. There will be fights between a group of men and women in each city, with fans able to watch two matches each afternoon. Margaret Island is an exception, here the Hungarian national and women’s national teams will play, and to avoid a collision with the swimming match, the first matches will start at 7.30 pm and the Hungarians will be in the water from 9 pm.
