In addition to the two substitute matches, on Saturday's game day of the 17th FINA World Championships women's water polo tournament, four national teams will be ranked among the top eight.

Host country Hungary, Olympic and World championships defender United States, Olympic silver medallist Italy and the Greek national teams won their group at the first stage of the World Championships, so these teams will have a three-day break.

For other competitors, Saturday morning will be busy, Brazil-South Africa and Japan-Kazakhstan matches are scheduled for the 13-16th place. However, the excitement comes with sunset.

(If you are interested in what happened in the morning click here for more details.)

Canada defeated China and Brazil by winning the second place in Group A behind Italians, thus meeting New Zealand -placed third in Group B after outshining South Africa- in the upcoming game. Canadian success is anticipated; therefore this year's World League silver medallist could then be combined with the Hungarian national team for the quarter-finals.

China has the third position in Group A, so they are playing against Spain on Monday, the Spaniards appear to be much more likely to win.

The Dutch team, going down against Hungary 10-8 hence being only second in the group, will have to face extremely hard-to-beat Russians. This will be the day's leading game; this fight will be the most challenging.

The final match starts late in the evening today, at 10 PM, with France playing Australia, the latter's national team’s failure would be a surprise, Australian success is expected.
