Had Hungary defeated China on Sunday, they would have been the first team in the group to meet Canada, who finished fourth in the other five in the quarter-finals, but since our team’s exit from the Asian team, they have only finished second. the group.
In Group A, Spain, Australia and the Netherlands also scored six points, with the Spaniards finishing the group with the best goal difference in the mini-table. The second and third places were already decided by the score against each other, as the Australians proved themselves better than the Dutch, who thus became third, and could play among the eight with the Hungarian national team.
Our country also beat the Netherlands in the bronze match at the Hungarian European Championships last year and then in the Trieste Olympic Qualifiers.
