MACEDONIA BASKETBALL - BATTLE CONTINUES - TONIGHT FRANCE
The Macedonian basketball team moved to the city of Bydgoszcz, where it plays a match today against France, marking the beginning of the struggle for securing a good result in the European Championship.
By losing two games from Greece and Croatia and beating Israel, the Macedonian team for the first time ever advanced into the second stage of a European Basketball Championship, looking at another historic opportunity - to secure participation in the World Basketball Championship, if they finish at least in seventh place.
To achieve this goal, we would have to win at least two games in the Group B, comprising except for Greece and Croatia also Russia, France and Germany.
Anyway, after 10-year hiatus, Macedonia is again part of a Eurobasket. What’s more, the victory over Israel means that our team is already the 12th best team in the continent.
MD: Interesting match today, it will be very tough, since France has a outstanding team, they have about 5 NBA players with Spurs's Tony Parker being their best man. He will be dangerous for us. Let's hope we can show some good play, also on the defensive end.
