  Men's WPWL: Serbia, Montenegro and Hungary target Super Final spot  
WPThe Super Final race got fiercer among the men's European teams as round 4 of the FINA Water Polo World League preliminaries was held in various cities on February 11, 2014.
Hungary (Group B) and Italy (Group C) had tough match-ups against Greece and Germany, winning 12-11 and 12-10, respectively. Romania (Group A) and Montenegro (Group C) had more comfortable victories. Romania outscored Russia in a gruelling 13-7 while the defending World League champions beat Slovakia 8-5.
Unbeaten so far, Serbia, Hungary and Montenegro give their World League campaign another boost, with their eyes firmly set on the three Super Final tickets up for grabs for Europe. Last year, these teams climbed the podium at the Super Final in Chelyabinsk (RUS) in that same order.
Two more rounds are scheduled for the men's European preliminaries: March 11th (round 5) and April 2nd and 15th (round 6). For the 2014 edition, the men’s Super Final will be organised in Dubai (UAE) from June 16-21, 2014.
