Montenegro men national water polo team has been defeated by Italy with the 6:5 score in the third round of the B Group at the Olympic Games in Rio.
The team of the coach Vladimir Gojkovic has been defeated the second time in a row. It lacked a good game in the attack – the “sharks” scored only five goals in total, two of them in three quarters. It was not enough to succeed, despite the phenomenal defence play. There were no true shots by Janovic, Ivovic and Radovic, whose goals are expected if we want to talk about winning medals.
However, Montenegrin team proved that it can play against the Italians. They stayed in the game until the very end. They had 34 seconds at the end to reach a draw, but they did not managed to score a goal.
Darko Brguljan was the most efficient with two goals, whereas Ivovic, Misic and Drasko Brguljan won one goal each. Di Fulvio scored three goals for Italy.
After the triumph over France, Montenegrin team was defeated by Croatia and Italy. It will play against the USA and Spain for the quarter-finals.
