(Group II) Hungary - Sweden 18:24 (9:10)
Fourth match of the Main round did not go as planned for Hungary. They were defeated by Sweden 18:24. Even though they started the match better and were in the lead for the few opening minutes, Sweden soon came back into the match. It was a really tough, goal by goal play all the way up to the 49th minute. After that Sweden secured bigger advantage and finished the match without any fear of losing points.
The situation in Group II of the Main round got complicated even more with Hungarian loss against Sweden. Now, if they want to proceed to the semi-finals, Hungary will have to beat Portugal. But not only that, they will secure semi-final spot only if Slovenia loses to Norway.
