Outside of the spirited closing ceremony, the Napoli 2019 Summer Universiade comes down to this — a packed Piscina Scandone cheering on the host nation against USA Team with the Waterpolo gold medal in the balance.
Can the Italian team keep on with their dominating play in the pool? The motivation sure seems right. "I feel very good," says Italian captain Umberto Esposito. "This is a significant competition for us. It’s important for us to win in front of our supporters."
Meanwhile, don’t count out the battle-tested American team that pulled out a hard-fought 12-9 victory over perennial Waterpolo contenders Hungary in the semifinals and a 12-11 quarterfinal victory against Croatia.
