The Netherlands did not pull. The third match at EuroBasket awarded the Czech team the outsider of the group. While before the match against Serbia there was practically no free space in front of the O2 arena, today you could dance there. Individuals from the land of tulips also visited the match. The Czechs and the Dutch understandably believed in their colors.

“The mood is good. I don’t think anyone is throwing a flint in the rye. We have one win less than we wanted compared to the original plan, on the other hand, the other results in the group are kind of going in our hands, so there’s no need to panic. We finally managed to give some of our best performance against Serbia apart from six minutes of a quarter. It just happens, we played against a good team. I believe it’s on the right track, so there’s no reason to be down and walk here with our heads down,” he said captain of the Czech national team Vojtěch Hruban after pre-match training.
And what was the pre-match atmosphere like?
