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 for the sake of talking is not always good. The important thing is to be honest with yourself and with your teammates. And we’re lucky to have a very self-respecting group that can look each other in the eye and have conversations about what we can do better.”
