Before the meeting, the continental tournament match series in Budapest started with a spectacular opening ceremony, and the teams were greeted by an almost full house in the new arena. Ádám Borbély, Mátyás Győri, Bence Nagy and Stefan Sunajko were not nominated for the match by the team of twenty people from the Hungarian national team.

The Hungarians playing under pressure did not start well, they missed several shots, taking advantage of this, the liberated and fast handball Dutchmen moved to 5-2 in seven minutes. In the 12th minute, at the 3-7 position, the federal captain István Gulyás asked for time and soon sent Márton Székely, who introduced himself at the goal with a brilliant defense.

The update also came for a managerial, assertive and left-wing position, but the image of the game did not change, it was more accurate and maintained its advantage under the control of the opponent Kay Smits. Two Hungarian penalties were also missed, so after a half, the Dutch deservedly lead with three hits.

In the jump, the opponent continued to use the rush against the unsettled defense, but slowed down the game with a defensive wall up as he had the advantage. Although the hosts once caught up with a goal, they then again made more and more mistakes, which the Dutch took advantage of (19-15).

Hope lived all the way

The home team kept up with Székely’s bravura’s defenses, but Bart Ravensbergen also performed excellently on the other side. The Hungarian band could not make their defense or offensive play more effective either, but after a Dutch time-out, Richard Bodó scored twice within twenty seconds (26-25).

Thanks to Máté Lékai, the tie came together three minutes before the end, but after the opponent scored again, the Hungarians attacked slowly, in the end Dominik Máthé deteriorated again, and the match was decided. To the great surprise, the Hungarians lost by never leading the whole match, using only one of their three time-outs and only one of their four assists.

The most successful player in the Netherlands and the best in the field was Kay Smits with ten goals, Dani Baijens hit eight times. Márton Székely closed with six defenses and Roland Mikler with three defenses. In the 21st match between the two teams, the Dutch won for the first time after twenty Hungarian successes.

Hungarians will meet Portugal from 6 pm on Sunday and Iceland from 6 pm on Tuesday. The top two finishers in the group will advance to the semi-finals, and if we get out of Portugal, we will almost certainly be eliminated.
