Hungary needed the victory against Tunisia in order to be able to plat at least for the 7th place of the WCh, which could mean a spot in the Olympic qualifications next year. Injured Balogh and Bodó were back to the squad. Tunisia is also struggling with injuries.

In the beginning, the teams played an even match, but Hungary took the lead in the last ten minutes of the first half and they never gave the chance for their opponents to really get back to the game. Steered by a fantastic playmaker, Máté Lékai (who may have traveled to Hungary early this morning for the birth of his child, then back to Denmark to arrive just before the match) and a very efficient Balogh, scoring 9 goals eventually, Hungary got the two points today without problems.

Referees: Santos, Fonseca (POR)

Topscorers: Zsolt Balogh 9, Máté Lékai 7 (HUN) and Mosbah Sanai, Oussama Boughanmi (TUN) 5 goals each

Suspensions: 12 minutes, 12 minutes
