British men head East for World League showdown

10th January 2012

The British Gas GBR Men’s Water Polo team take on Russia in their second World League qualifier on Wednesday.

The British team impressed in their opening qualification match against Italy last month, pushing the world champions hard in a 14-6 defeat at Manchester Aquatics Centre.

And the Brits will look to continue their good form in Kirishi against a Russian side who lost 16-5 to the Italians in Civitavecchia in their opening match.

With only one of the three teams progressing to June’s ‘Super Final’, both nations will be desperate to kick-start their campaigns.

Head coach Cristian Iordache has named a 13-strong squad to face the Russians with the match due to start at 14:30 GMT.
