“We are survivors”
“We are survivors. We have the game in hand and we revive them, without finding solutions. The bench had a great game. We always believed in him. The loss of balls hurt us, ”says Evan Fournier
“Serbia is a very big team. But the goal is not the quarter-finals. We will recover well,” added the New York player.
We don’t work that hard to lose in the eighth
“I told myself that I would have the rebound, I prepared myself to finish off. I knew that the foul was not called. We are washed, it was a difficult game, early like that. They gave us a chance, we fought until the end. If I don’t believe in myself, who will? We didn’t work so hard to lose in the round of 16,” Rudy Gobert reacted.

Good morning to all
Welcome to RMC Sport to follow the live commentary of the Eurobasket round of 16 between France and Turkey. Classified after three games won in Cologne, the Blues now have an appointment in Berlin, before an audience that promises to be hostile.
The moment of truth will come early, way too early for a basketball game. Late too, so much so to see what the private Olympic vice-champions of bosses Nicolás Batum and Nando De Colo are worth, resting this summer.
The group stage delivered a blurry picture. They were on the move, starting with the starting five. “We start the European Championship still under construction, describes coach Vincent Collet. We take advantage of this first round to move forward. Now we have to validate”.
