Hrvatska se plasirala u finale pobjedom nad Mađarskom | Croatia will play in the finals after defeating Hungary 

Hrvatska muška seniorska reprezentacija pobjedom nad domaćinom Mađarskom u polufinalu plasirala se u finale Svjetskog prvenstva u Budimpešti. Hrvati su ponovno slavili nakon raspucavanja, a posljednji je mrežu zatresao Dumenčić i odveo Hrvatsku do finala.

Porazom od Brazila prijepodne, Hrvatskoj je pripalo polufinale protiv domaće ekipe s kojom su se već susreli u grupnoj fazi, a slavili su ponovno Hrvati. Unatoč kiši i terenu po kojem je bilo teško igrati, navijači su mogli uživati u utakmici punoj napetosti, a pitanje pobjednika riješilo se tek zlatnim golom.

Prvi set pripao je hrvatskoj strani, koja je vodila od samog početka i po isteku desete minute slavila sa 17:13, drugi set pripao je Mađarima pa su slijedila raspucavanja. Nakon pet serija raspucavanja, rezultat je bio 8:8. Nakon toga, prvi koji pogriješi, ispada. Glavnu ulogu u pobjedi Hrvatske odigrali su tada Luka Bumbak, koji je obranio ključnu mađarsku loptu, a nakon njega je Ivan Dumenčić zatresao protivničku mrežu za drugo uzastopno svjetsko finale.

“Ne znam, bez teksta sam još uvijek, dojmovi se još nisu slegli. Bio je jako jako zahtjevan psihički ovaj shootout, kao što se vidjelo išlo se i nakon pete serije, išli smo jedan za jedan. Počeli smo onako kako smo se dogovorili, da jako krenemo, da dobijemo prvi set. Drugi set moram priznat da su nas iznenadili s obranom, dobro su to odigrali, a mi se nismo baš snašli. Na raspucavanju smo jednostavno znali da ćemo pobijediti jer nam je tako na ovom prvenstvu”, prokomentirao je kapetan Ivan Jurić.

Ivan Dumenčić rekao je kako se osjeća sjajno te nadodao: “Iz godine u godinu pokazujemo karakter. Pobjeđujemo kad je najteže. Krenuli smo u raspucavanja s jednim promašajem ali smo se uspjeli vratiti. Zaista smo karakterno čudo, ali uvjeti stvarno nisu za rukomet na pijesku… Pljusak, mokra lopta, kaljuža. Zasluženo smo išli na raspucavanja, al pokazujemo da smo bolji od ostalih. Zaista će dvije najbolje ekipe igrati u finalu”, zaključio je Dumenčić.

Finale je na rasporedu u nedjelju, 17. srpnja u 19 sati, kada će se, kao i u finalu 2014. godine u Recifeu susresti Hrvatska i Brazil.

Hrvatska 2 – 1 Mađarska (17:14, 12:21, 11:10) 

Brazil 2 – 0 Katar (19:18, 16:15)
