A great victory for Greek men’s junior water polo team!

With the spectators shouting “Hellas, Hellas” on the stands in Belgrade, Greek men’s junior water polo team gave a big fight in the pool against the Croats.

The Greek team made an excellent game in the final and defeated Croatia in the penalty shootout with 5-3 after the regular period ended 7-7, with the Greeks being ahead with 7-6 which was equaled a few seconds before the finish.

The team has reached the finals twice in the past winning the silver, the first time in France, in 1995 after losing to Hungary and in Croatia, in 2011 after losing to Croatia.

It is the second gold medal that Greece wins in this category of National Teams after its first victory in Istanbul, in 2001.
