Croatia and Greece participated in the opening round of Group B at the 2022 FINA World Championships in Hungary on Tuesday night.

Croatia has run a 4-1 deficit since the first quarter to finish a match tied to current Olympic runners 8: 8 (4: 1, 1: 4, 2: 1, 1: 2). It turned around.

“We took this point with great aspirations and hearts. As expected, we noticed a player’s cramps during the match, but we can’t blame the boy. But this is the first match of the World Championship. “That’s what Ibika Tukaku said after the match, before adding.

“I’m really happy with the will and desires shown. The tournament has just begun and two more group matches are waiting. This is a great experience for these people and everything is still open and We are moving forward step by step. “

Croatia will face Germany next June 23 at 6:30 pm and will face Japan in the final group match.

It was particularly difficult in the first quarter, but it is understandable considering that there are many debut works and young players. As soon as I recovered and started playing the game, I returned to the match. We’ve had points since this first match and now we’re already looking at our next rival, the German, “captain Ivan Crapitch said.
