Hungary maintained their unbeaten record as European qualification matches continued in the International Swimming Federation (FINA) Women's Water Polo World League.

They defeated France 15-4 in their home pool in Budapest after giving few opportunities to their rivals.

It means they have now won all three matches - with two victories in regulation time - to top Group B with eight points.

Olympic silver medallists Italy, who were not in action today, are second on four points but have played a game less.

France have lost all three matches and sit bottom of the three-team group.

In Group A, The Netherlands went top thanks to a narrow 10-9 win over Greece in front of their home crowd in Nijverdal.

They have five points after two victories - one in regulation time - and one defeat.
