BASKETBALL – France beats the US and will be Argentina's rival in basketball World Cup semis


France gave the big surprise to eliminate the United States by 89-79, this Wednesday in their duel of quarterfinals in Dongguan, which will be the rival of Argentina on Friday in the semifinals.

The French team was led by Evan Fournier (22 points) and Rudy Gobert (21 points and 16 rebounds).

The French completely dominated the rebounds and countered the direct game of the Americans, sending on the scoreboard for many minutes.

Donovan Mitchell, author of 29 points, pulled the USA team, but the French knew how to keep a cool head in an intense final to materialize the surprise, qualify for the semifinals and send the United States to fight for positions 5 to 8.

It was a historical success for the Bleus, who had never defeated the Americans, who attended this event in China-2019 with important absences.
