FRANCE - LATVIA. Second match at the World Cup for the Blues who no longer have the right to make mistakes. The France team must win against Latvia to remain in contention in the World Cup. Time, TV channel... Find out all the information about this meeting.
Victory or the door! The France team no longer has a choice in this Basketball World Cup. After a heavy inaugural defeat Friday against Canada (95-65), the Blues challenge the Latvians and are forced to win if they do not want to be eliminated in the preliminary round. A complicated match in sight against Latvia which took place for its first meeting (109-70 victory against Lebanon). If some French players have sounded the revolt like Nicolas Batum or Evan Fournier, it will now be necessary to link actions to words. If the Blues are favorites for this meeting on "paper", they can also count on the packages of the two stars Kristaps Porzingis and Janis Strelnieks. In difficulty against the Canadians, Rudy Gobert is expected for this second match of the World Cup. The tricolor pivot took the opportunity to place the players face to face with their responsibilities: "Talking just to talk is not always good. The important thing is to be honest with yourself and with your teammates. And we have the fortunate to have a group that respects itself a lot and is able to look each other in the eye and have conversations about what we can do better."
The kick-off of the second match of the preliminary round at the Community Shield Basketball World Cup between the France team and Latvia is scheduled for Sunday, August 27 at 3:30 p.m. at the Indonesia Arena in Jakarta (Indonesia).
