Hungarian men’s water polo team is preparing with plenty of matches for the olympic games. The Magyars host Brazil in Miskolc on Saturday, and then play against Australia, Croatia and Georgia in the BENU Cup in Budapest next week.

„The second phase of the preparation has started. On Monday I named my olympic squad, so now everyone knows his role, and nobody needs to worry about his status” – Tibor Benedek, head coach of team Hungary said.

„From now on our goal is to have a unified, well-organised team that can get a good result in the olympics. We played 8 matches in 7 seven days in Croatia last week, so in the next couple of days the physical preparation will be the most important, I want my players to be hungry for playing matches.”

Three-time olympic champion Benedek decided to change the captaincy in the Hungarian team: Dániel Varga gives way to his brother Dénes Varga.

„As I saw the captaincy put a little too much pressure on Dániel, and I think Dénes will be stronger to have this new role” – Tibor Benedek added.

The BENU Cup (both men’s and women’s tournament) will be held in Margitsziget from 13-17 July.
