Hungary beat Russia, 5-4, in the Universiade water polo final on Wednesday to win the gold medal. "The Russian team is very good. Both teams play at a high level. The key in our game was the goalkeeper, who outplayed everyone. All the players did everything they were supposed to do in a game of this magnitude," Levente told reporters from R-Sport. He said the memory of the success in Kazan will remain with him. "I played for the Hungarian team 358 times, but as the coach of the Hungarian team, this was my debut," said Levente.
