Latypov: Hungarians acted more strict than the national team of Russia in the final of the Universiade

The Hungarian water polo national team played strictly in the final of the Universiade, unlike the Russians who were more segmental, said the Russian team striker Adel Latypov.

The Russian men's water polo team lost to the Hungarians in the final of the Universiade: the match ended 5-4 to the hosts.

“We didn’t manage the game today. We, first of all, poorly acted as a team. And the opponent acted well, it played strictly, unlike us - Latypov told the reporters of R-Sport. - This is not a complete first team of the Hungarians, but this is their closest reserve. One can not compare the match in the group, where we beat them, with the final match." The water polo player noted that the physical form of the Russian team was good enough: “Yesterday we had a reconstructive training. We managed to rest from the game with the Serbs".  “We are not happy with silver, because there was only one goal - a victory at the Universiade,” Latypov summed up.
