A comprehensive text before the match between Germany and Poland can be read at sport.de. The coach and players of the German national basketball team treat the bronze medal with respect, and still remember that they came close to reaching the Grand Final (91:96 defeat in the semi-finals with Spain – opening note).
Poles are dangerous. We have to be more focused when we get on the dance floor,” said Johannes Thiemann, a center for the German team. After that, the journalists spoke: “Although Poland surprised the European Championship by defeating the Slovenian defender, it suffered three defeats with more than 25 points, including 54:95 in the semi-final against France” – he emphasized.
The coach of the national team, Gordon Herbert, spoke respectfully about Poland: – We had two very close matches in the World Cup qualifiers. We won twice but it was close. They are a great team – confirmed Herbert, citing sport.de.

The 63-year-old also explained that, after all, no one expected Poland to be in the top four in the tournament.
Eurosport.de journalists in turn published a short text in which they clearly stated that the preferred candidates for the meeting were Germany. Meanwhile, Eurosport has resisted the bookmakers’ signals, and it gives our representation very little chance of winning a bronze medal.
Sport1.de also briefly commented on the match against Poland, saying, inter alia, the statements of the players and the coach. – It is now important not to drop your head. We still have a lot of work to do and we want to be rewarded for what we have done so far, Thiemann emphasized.
Journalists point out that Sunday’s game is important from a statistical perspective. “After the EuroBasket gold in 1993 and the silver medal in 2005, there is still no bronze in the medal pool” – he emphasized.
The match between Germany and Poland will start at 5:15 pm. Broadcast on TVP 1, text on WP SportoweFakty.
