The USA Men’s Water Polo team appeared poised to take 2-0 record in to their third game of the group stage at the 16th FINA World Championships. The Americans held a 10-8 lead with four minutes remaining the the final quarter but let slip the lead they had maintained all game. The Greeks went ahead, 11-10, with half a minute remaining and blunted a final US attack to earn the win.
Surprising Greece now appears to be atop the very tough Group B after surprising Italy in their opener. The US is 1-1 with a win over Russia on Monday.
