LONDON (Reuters) - Defending champions Hungary suffered their second loss in a row when they were beaten 11-10 by Montenegro on the second day of the men's water polo competition on Tuesday.
Hungary, the most successful country in Olympic water polo and gunning for their fourth consecutive gold in London, showed their quality in the second half but it was not enough to overcome a determined Montenegrin team.
Hungary lost 14-10 to Serbia on Sunday to end a 12-year, 17- game unbeaten run at the Olympics and they are under pressure to progress with three group games left. The top four in the six-team group qualify for the knockout stages.
Two late penalties, one for either side, delighted an early morning crowd packed with Hungarian supporters, in an exciting end to a match in which the Hungarians scored twice in the final minute of the game.

Lets Get Started
bell pepper (any color)
butter, salt and ground black pepper to taste
leaf of fresh dill for decoration
How to prepare, step-by-step:
1) Prepare ingredients: pick big and wide bell pepper, smaller tomato and eggs:
2) Rinse bell pepper, remove stem and seeds and cut 2 big rings about 1/3” thick. Warm up skillet over moderate low heat and grease it with butter, add them to the skillet and fry on one side for about 3 mins:
3) Slice 2 thin circles of tomato and position them in the middle of the bell pepper rings and season with salt and fry for 1-2 mins more (btw, you will not need the remaining part of the bell pepper as well as tomato, you can use them for decoration however):
4) Carefully crack an egg into one of the bell pepper rings right over the tomato, don’t worry if a bit of egg white gets out, you can simply remove it later on (but if too much spills that is a sign to get bigger bell pepper, or slice rings thicker, or use smaller eggs):
5) And then repeat with another one:
6) Season with salt and ground black pepper:
7) Cook eggs under until cooked though the way you like (use lid if you want them medium or well done):
8) Turn heat off, carefully remove egg white around bell pepper rings with spatula, decorate with fresh dill and serve with toasts:
