If you were upset the other night when Croatia lost to Serbia in the basketball quarterfinal. Don’t worry. Retribution may be around the corner. And on a much larger stage.
Saturday afternoon in Rio, Croatia will face hated rivals Serbia in the much anticipated men’s gold medal water polo match. The Croatian Barracudas looked comfortable in both knockout round wins against hosts Brazil and Montenegro. But Serbia is peaking at the right moment as well; dismantling a very good Italian side 10-8 in the semifinal round.
The match can be seen on NBC in the United States.
Croatia are eyeing a repeat as they will be defending their 2012 London 1st place finish and looking to cement a dynasty.
One thing is certain. Croatia is getting a medal in water polo. We just don’t know which anthem will be playing when the flags go up.
