Les Bleues got off to a bad start in this second match of the Basketball World Cup

⏱️ Les Bleues are away at the end of this third quarter (30-45). We saw everything: a failed ename from home (a gap of more than twenty points), before the Habs found a little address. They are a bit far to grab a victory, but we will have to reduce the gap as much as possible.

The opponent of the day of the Blue also started his World Cup with a success: 67-60 against Serbia. France is 2nd in Group B, with the same number of points as Japan (1st) and Canada (3rd).



This is the number of points scored by Gabby Williams in the first game of Les Bleues. It is also his record with the France team. The 26-year-old wing delivered a full game (3 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals) and reassured, after Marine Johannès’ package.


Four years ago, Canada beat Les Bleues in pool

At the last World Cup, in 2018, Les Bleues gave in to the Canadians in their last group match (71-60). A bad memory for the Tricolors, which remains on three defeats in their last five confrontations.


Entrance victory for the Blues

The French women’s team won their first World Cup match yesterday against Australia (70-57) in Sydney. Faced with a host country that did not have much success in shooting, Les Bleues delivered a very good collective score. Les Bleues got rid of the reigning vice-world champions, a first success which should give them confidence for the future.
