vamos 2 and varga de 3 led the hungarian list on the scoring sheet while constantin-bicari’s splendid 2-goal effort got him to be the best seen in the canadian ranks.

the experimental brazil side with an eye on future tournaments four years from now fought well in the first three quarters for 3-0 and 5-0 readouts which china were able to cut down on the margin in the last two sessions with 4-3 and 5-1 wins.

the chinese fightback came too late for them to taste their second straight loss at 9-12 in the group a clash.

silva 4 gomes 2 and guimaraes 2 powered the south americans as tan 3 zhang 2 and liang 2 very nearly titled the scales in favour of the mainlanders.

day 3’s (wednesday) programme is: 2.30pm hungary v usa 3.50pm serbia v brazil 5.10pm australia v canada 6.30pm china v montenegro.

five-goal nikola murisic led the balkans’ splurge in dubai pool waters with his masterly counter punching mode that left the young samba men clueless.

brazilian water polo is in a development phase with the focus on the olympics in 2016 official media info stated.

legendary croatian coach ratko rudic who took over the reigns of the brazilian team last year said: “we more or less expected this result but i was hoping that they could do a little better. our players will learn from this and we will analyse it for the next game. we made too many mistakes in the beginning especially the first quarter and we weren’t fully prepared. it’s an important match to get under our belts. we need more game experience.”

murisic said: “this was a good game but we need to continue like this if we are to win the medal and i believe and i know that we will win the medal.”
