Defeat for Greece against Team USA in FIBA World Cup match


Greece’s national basketball team suffered a defeat in the second group stage match of the FIBA Basketball World Cup tournament against the U.S. on Saturday, which the Americans won by 69-53.

The Greek men’s side was unable to repeat the triumph of the Greek team in 2006, which had then defeated the U.S. team, but will have another shot at making the final eight next Monday, when they play against the Czech Republic. Greece needs to win by at least +12 points to get through, as well as a U.S. victory against Brazil on September 9.

It was the Greek team’s second defeat in the tournament so far, while Team USA has won four in four matches and have virtually secured their place in the semi-finals.
