Australia keeps Hungary out of top eight - the results of day 4

The medal and ranking matches of the 14th FINA World Championships at Shanghai, China started with 27 goals in the Central Asia clash when two-time Olympic Games participant Kazakhstan beat Uzbekistan by one goal, 14-13. Today´s results are as follows:

In the duel of two former World champions and the rematch of the bronze medal game Australia gained a 10-9 victory against Hungary. It is Hungary´s worst result in the history of all FINA World Championships so far. The players from Eastern Europe even took part in inaugural tournament at the 1986 event at Madrid, Spain when they finished already fourth. The Australia victory was clearer as the final result says. The stingers were leading by three goals for a long time and Hungary scored the last goal only a few seconds before the final whistle.
Russia achieved one of the highest victories in the history of FINA World Championships, beating Cuba 26-4. Now the three-time European champion will face the reigning title-holders USA in the quarter-finals. The Netherlands gained an easy 14-6 victory against Team New Zealand which is coached by former Dutch international Eelco Uri. The Kiwis lost their fourth cross-over match in a row since the strange 2-1 loss to Germany at the 2005 FINA World Championships at Montreal, Canada.
