Croatian water-polo team will face Serbia for the gold medal
For the first time in eight years and the World championship title in 2007 and three consecutive losses in the semi-finals,Croatian water-polo team will be playing in the finals again.
In a very dramatic game, Barracudas managed to keep their cool and defeat Greece after a penalty shootout – final score 15:13 (3-1, 2-3, 3-2, 2-4; 5-3). Goal keeper Josip Pavić once again saved the day sucessfully stopping Fountoulis’ penalty.
