BASKETBALL. France v Poland: Blues overhaul Poles to reach final, match summary


FRANCE – POLAND. The Blues overcame Poland in the semi-finals of Euro 2022 basketball and are heading to the final. They will face Germany and Spain, who will also be playing this Friday, September 16.

19:20 – Summary of the match

The French are in the final and in style! The Blues pushed Poland out of the way after a much better game than the previous ones (95-54). From the first minutes, the Blues showed some defensive mastery despite the new losses of the ball. They actually lost a dozen balloons after the first act, enough to rekindle fears from the past. Unlike previous encounters, however, the French proved that they have an iron defense. Rudy Gobert made some pretty impressive counters. This Poland, on the other hand, didn’t seem to have the answers to thwart this solid defensive scheme. In the end, Igor Milicic’s men scored only nine points in the first quarter and as many in the second. While the third quarter did not go well for the French in the elimination fights, they managed to make up for it this afternoon by worsening the result. Trailing 30-18 in the third quarter, the Blues scored 28 points before starting the final 10 minutes. Those final minutes would only serve to establish French dominance for the day. Vincent Collet also took the opportunity to rest the senior staff and give game time to those who haven’t had enough. Despite the significant rotation, M’Baye, Okobo or even Fall returned with the same determination as their teammates. Vincent Collet’s men will be able to watch the other semi-final of this competition between Germany and Spain tonight at 8.30pm with some relaxation before they face one of the other two teams this Sunday.
