The men’s water polo team easily defeated Israel at the 35th European Championship, securing their first place in the group and the accompanying quarter-final appearance.
European Water Polo Championship, men, 3rd (last) round:
Hungary-Israel 23-4 (4-0, 7-2, 6-1, 6-1)
Hungarian goalscorers: Manhercz 6, Vigvári 4, Burián 3, Fekete, Zalánki, Nagy 2-2, Német, Vadovics, Konarik, Ágh 1-1
This time, national team captain Zsolt Varga rested Dániel Angyal and team captain Szilárd Jansik among his senior players, considering that defeating Israel could not have been a problem without them. This also meant that György Ágh could introduce himself at the continental tournament.
The team of the federal captain, who was appointed in July, left no doubt for a moment that, as the title defenders and Olympic bronze medalists in Tokyo, they represent a completely different standard than their opponents. The 16 teams participating in the men’s tournament were divided into four groups, from which the group leaders immediately advance to the quarter-finals, while the second and third-placed teams play each other for a place in the last eight.
On Tuesday, the Hungarians will meet the winner of the second place in Group A and the third place in Group C on Sunday. On paper, this could be Montenegro, although not yet their second place, only the order of Group C has not been established.
