Shattered by Wembanyama and the Blues, the Bosnian cash coach

Winners of the France team a few weeks ago, the Bosnians, on the other hand, suffered on Monday against the Blues. Particularly martyred by Victor Wembanyama, the coach of the “Dragons”, Aziz Bekir, did not hide his face after the beating.

The equation was meant to be simple: a success, and they officially obtained their ticket for the 2023 World Cup. Applied, the Blues perfectly fulfilled their objective this Monday, at the Palais des sports de Pau, by outclassing Bosnia-Herzegovina (92 -56). A meeting dominated head and shoulders by the troops of Vincent Collet, but which nevertheless had a trap aspect.

Certainly the favorite for this meeting, the France team had not forgotten its setback suffered last August on Bosnian soil, shortly before the start of the Eurobasket. She was therefore keen to wash away this affront in front of her audience, and did so in particular thanks to a great Victor Wembanyama, author of a new big performance and of moves of which he has the secret. What frustrate his opponents in the evening.

The admiring Bosnian coach in front of the Blues

Besides Wembanyama, who would have liked to burn even more than he did, all the French players brought their stone to the building in this great victory. Juhann Begarin, Damien Inglis, Sylvain Francisco: each contributed in a very good way to this triumph, synonymous with qualification for the World Cup. Aziz Bekir, the Bosnian coach, therefore only took his hat off to them at a press conference:

Congratulations to France, they played a very good game. She changed her way of playing compared to the game against Lithuania. She was much more aggressive, and we didn’t know how to respond. They caused 24 ball losses, and we failed to organize anything in attack.

Distraught, the “Dragons” of Bosnia have indeed not been able to adapt to this tactical change made by the Blues.

After the slap inflicted on the Lithuanians a few days earlier, the French armada proved even more solid defensively, completely seizing Bosnia’s game plan in attack. As a result, Bekir’s men have never been able to find their cruising speed offensively, and have paid for it in particular at the level of their 3-point address, with only 4 of their 24 attempts converted from afar (16.7%).

Conversely, France again proved to be formidable behind the arc, scoring 14 of their 26 shots taken from the parking lot. This good dynamic in terms of outside shooting must have pleased Vincent Collet, who remembers the difficulties displayed by his team in this area at the Euro. Let’s therefore hope that it will continue in the months to come, and especially during the World Cup!

Without a solution to stop Victor Wembanyama and his teammates, Aziz Bekir could only bow to the excellent performance rendered by the Blues against Bosnia and Herzegovina. A good omen as the World Cup approaches!
