Yesterday Serbia started the match against USA like on wings. Won it 32:7 and it seemed that it will be a crushing win, however, they lost 2nd quarter 12:33 and that shows, that they started to play not focused, and believed they won too early. But in 2nd half, they managed to start playing better and won a close game 94:89. Well, now they will have to play against a motivated opponent, but not so tough.

Czechs had an amazing tournament, nobody believed they could reach quarterfinals, and now they have a chance to take the 5th place. And that would be truly an outstanding achievement. However, this time the opponent is much tougher than before. Because Serbia surely dont want to end World Cup with a loss, so most likely they will play with full strength. But Czechs also can play well and challenge them. If Czechs will be able to make it a close game, they will definitely have a chance to win. But so far Serbia has better players in every position. So it will be very difficult.
