After a shocking performance, our National Men's Polo Team defeated Montenegro 10-4 and "closed" a place in the "4" of the Olympic tournament in Tokyo, for the second time in its history.

In Friday's match he will claim the qualification to the final of the tournament against the team of Hungary which was imposed with a score of 15-11 of Croatia.

Now, our National team it takes a win in the two remaining games to make the medal dream come true.

The atmosphere in the team is excellent and this, after all, underlined exclusively in Athens 9,84 and Giannis Giaginis, three of the players of the National Men's Polo, the team captain Giannis Foundoulis, the goalkeeper Emmanuel Zerdevas who played an amazing game and Konstantinos Gennidounias who scored five of the total ten goals of the National.

The statements of the team's coach Thodoris Vlachos are on the same wavelength, who stressed that his players are determined to fight for a medal.

Thodoris Vlachos

«With today's victory, a great goal was achieved, the emphatic qualification in the quartet. But we feel that this is not enough. We want to take the next step. So far we have made our mark here in Tokyo, that we are a very good team. The Montenegro we won today is not a random team. In recent years he has been in the medals. We have gained a traditional strength. We have not done such a significant victory against such a great opponent in the past. We will prepare for Friday's game. What matters is how we play. We are now predictable opponents, no one will underestimate us. Our "key" was again the defense. She gives qualifiers, Cups and medals. I hope we continue like this ".

 

Giannis Foυντούλης

"The final score may give the impression that it was an easy game for us, but it is our performance that determines whether it is an easy victory or not. We continued the excellent performances we had in the group stage and I think we deserved today's success. We understand that this is the key. We have an excellent goalkeeper, Manolis Zervadas and we just try to help him. I think he also feels very confident with the effort we make in defense and he makes even better appearances. I believe we can do it».

 

Emmanuel Zerdevas

"I will not dwell on my own performance. It is certainly very honorable that an athlete like Giannis Foundoulis speaks so kindly of me. The effort is total. Through teamwork we manage to get these results. The "key" in our games is the defense due to the energy and passion we bring to the water. I hope the sequel will be similar. We will play with as much appetite and energy as we can ".

 

 

Konstantinos Gennidounias

«Personal goals do not matter at this point. The important thing is that we conceded just four goals and that gave us the victory that brings us a breath away from the medal but also two very strong games away. I hope to be one and win the next. We must maintain our concentration. The worst case scenario would be to leave here empty-handed. If we do, we will be wronging ourselves. We have to keep our concentration, be more stubborn and come to the next fight to give it our all. We are a company, we are above all friends. Most of us have known each other for many years and even the youngest children bonded very well with the rest. We all move forward together».
