The Hungarian men’s water polo team defeated the defending champion Spain 12-11 to reach the final of the Fukuoka World Aquatics Championships and qualify for next year’s Paris Olympics.
In the last minute of the tie, Spain had a man advantage but missed a shot. With a few seconds left, Krisztián Manhercz fired a shot from an acute angle and the ball went under the arm of the Spanish goalkeeper and crossed the goal line at the last moment.
Zsolt Varga’s team will face the Greek team, who are the Olympic champions, in the final on Saturday.
