The Romanian water polo team has managed to qualify for the Swimming World Cup’s quarterfinals after defeating Australia on Sunday, score 7-5 (2-1, 1-1, 2-1, 2-2). The Romanian team, trained by the renowned Hungarian head coach Istvan Kovacs, dominated the entire game, mostly thanks to its airtight defence, a defence properly coordinated and backed by Dragos Stanescu, a world-class water polo goalkeeper. In the attack Cosmin Radu was the same scorer in decisive moments and creator of numerical superiority, with our team proving its homogeneity and high quality training. In the quarterfinals Romania will play against Croatia, the world title holder. Romania will start the game with no inferiority complex after managing to eliminate Italy, the host nation, in the group stage and after defeating Hungary one week ago in a training tournament in Bucharest.
