In group D tough battles can be expected as favourites Hungary, Russia and China were drawn together with outsiders newcomers France having the daunting task of creating an upset. All teams advance to the elimination round where crossing matches (e.g. 1 vs 4 / 2 vs. 3) will create the quarterfinalists.
