The Serbian Water polo National team has its rival for the quarterfinals. The Dolphins will be playing against the United States, after their 7-3 victory against Brazil.  The current US coach, and former Serbian NT leader, Dejan Udovičić has pointed out the strength of the Serbian players: Serbia is the only team that we almost certainly cannot win against. This will be an important experience and an honor for us. It is just the reality, and I plan on giving the younger players a chance.

The match between Serbia and the US is to be played on Tue, at 20:30 (CET).

Meanwhile, the Serbian team will be training twice a day, to keep up their fitness before the important game. An element that team captain, Živko Gocić agrees on, while eliminating any possible result calculations: I don’t know if the others were doing it, or wanted to do it… For us, it’s a forbidden subject. We don’t talk about it.

The other QF pairs are:

Croatia vs. Montenegro; Greece vs. Australia; Hungary vs. Italy


Srpska reprezentacija konačno ima četvrtfinalnog rivala. Delfini će igrati protiv selekcije Amerike, nakon njihove pobede nad Brazilom, od 7-3.  Selektor  Sjedinjenih Država i bivši strateg srpske reprezentacije, Dejan Udovičić, istakao je snagu srpskih igrača: Srbija je jedina ekipa koju skoro sigurno ne možemo da pobedimo. Za nas će to biti veliko iskustvo, čast nam je da igramo protiv nje. Realnost je takva i posle toga planiram da razigravam mladje igrače.

Meč između Srbije i Amerike, igraće se u utorak od 20:30. U međuvremenu će izabranici Dejana Savića trenirati dva puta na dan, kako bi održali formu i ostali u neophodnom takmičarskom ritmu. Element čiju važnost ističe i kapiten Živko Gocić, eliminišući bilo kakve teorije o kalkulacijama: Ne znam da li su drugi to radili ili želeli da rade. Za nas je to zabranjena tema, o tome ne razgivaramo.

Ostali četvrtfinalni parovi su:

Hrvatska – Crna Gora (16:30)
Grčka – Australija (17:50)
