On Saturday September 14 at 14.00 hours in Beijing our national team plays the last game at the World Cup in China against Czech Republic for 5th place.
After yesterday’s brilliant win against Americans , the national team of Serbia arrived to Beijing. In the hotel gym recovery training was held , while on Saturday morning our team will practice in the hall where the game against Czech Republic is planned.
Aleksandar Djordjevic, the head coach of Serbian team, before the game with Czech Republic says:

A game that is to end in right way , the way we have done in the game against America, and we have played that game fantastically, concentrated , we have led 40 minutes… We should enter in the same way the game with Czech Republic , and complete this tournament with dignity ,as it suites to real , serious professionals. We have come here , and of course our thoughts are still on the quarterfinal game and it will stay like that. However , we should concentrate on basketball and seek for a good way to end this competition.

Talking about opponent the Head coach has only positive words:

The Czech national team is a team that has risen up. Even though they do not have Vesely in their team, Balvin , the center , is their pole of defense , as well as of offense , along with Satoransky who is absolute leader and who has played fantastic at this competition. They are one of the surprises of this World Cup, along with Poland , as they have entered in the first eight and thus have made fantastic score. Congratulations, they still have old players like Auda and Pumprla , but also some new boys who have appeared and who play good basketball. There is also their head coach Ginzburg who has led them for a long time and whom we have met in 2015 in the quarterfinals of the European Championship in France. So, it is a national team who has through its work , process and continuity , achieved this result and it deserves to congratulate it….
