Attila Bíró’s team, with a 31-goal victory over the Colombians and a 10-9 defeat to the Italians, was waiting behind him for a final-round clash against the Canadians, which was second in the group. The Hungarian band had to repay the real thing, because at the 2017 World Cup in Budapest, the North Americans broke pepper under the nose of Keszthely, they won as a rude guest, and in the end they finished fourth, while the Hungarian national team had to reach the fifth place in the fifth year. at home.

The Hungarian team, which won a bronze medal in the last fifty and a half thousand fans of last year’s Tokyo Olympics at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo, started Friday’s match in the fifties of the Hajós swimming pool. Gurisatti’s second attempt proved accurate, with Canadians beautifying him from a double human advantage (2-1).

Gurisatti started the second quarter with a Hungarian goal, and Rybanska Natasa gave a “counter-response” to the Canadian response from the center (4-2). The Canadians helped the Canadians beautify, and the Hungarians were replayed by the video replay, which showed Dóra Leimeter’s hit. Before the big break, North Americans closed off with a distant drop (5-4).

The first substantial development of the third part of the game was Rita Keszthelyi’s long-range bomb reaching the target, then Szilágyi snapped exactly from the next action, and later Keszthelyi fired the lower right corner (8-4). And the parade series continued: the triple team captain Keszthelyi hit the ball into the Canadian goal (9-4). Neither the time-out nor the newer forces improved the opponent’s efficiency, so having a five-goal lead could lead to the final act. In which Vályi Vanda not only brought the ball for the fourth time in the swim, but he also recorded the tenth home hit. The Canadians also scored their fifth goal, followed by the sixth and the seventh from another human advantage, but their vivacious hopes were dashed out of the forum by the successful Leimeter (11-7).

He is in second place behind the Italians in the quadruple of the Hungarian national team, and will play with the Argentine national team on Margaret Island on Sunday from 6.30 pm to reach the top eight.

Attila Bíró emphasized after the blowout: “As the result shows, our game was much better today, but we had to fight and defend hard to be so confident.”

He added that his defense had improved a lot compared to the match against the Italians, but he was also more pleased with the attack.

“We’ve been zoning a lot more today than against the Italians, so we’ve been at a human disadvantage far fewer times, making our game smoother, of course.”

The expert noted, of course, that there could be no question of victory for Argentina in the top eight.

“It’s good that we have to play on Sundays to meet our fantastic audience again and not train in an empty pool. Of course I would have been happy to win against the Italians on Wednesday, but that’s good,” he said.
