Germany’s water polo players started the European Championship with a clear defeat against the title candidate Croatia. The selection of national coach Hagen Stamm was beaten 9:17 (2: 1, 2: 6, 1: 6, 4: 4) in Budapest on Tuesday in Budapest. Marin Restovic (3), Maurice Jüngling (2), Ben Reibel (2), Denis Strelezkij and Julian Real scored the goals. The second group game on Thursday (10 a.m.) against Slovakia, which lost 4:15 against Montenegro at the start, is far more significant. A win against Slovakia left the chances of participating in the Olympic Games intact.
