Poland's men produced a stunning comeback victory to beat Hungary 3-2 on the opening day of the European Sitting Volleyball Championship in Kemer in Turkey.

Hungary went 2-1 up after taking the subsequent two sets 25-21 and 25-19.

However, the momentum swung back towards Poland as they pulled off a 25-16 win in the fourth set before ruthlessly finishing the match 15-5 in the decider.

Elsewhere in Group B, The Netherlands beat Latvia 3-0.

The scoreline did not reflect the performance of Latvia who put up a good fight in each set before eventually succumbing 26-24, 25-22, 25-21.

Defending champions Russia demolished the Czech Republic 25-5, 25-5, 25-9 as they look to win three consecutive titles.
