  • Russia and Spain are not playing in their best level. Puerto Rico beat China hm. Third time in a row this second country lost in few days against first ;-) I am thinking when Turkey will be beat and out from tournament- in 1/8 or 1/4? Turkish Fans are always big outpower for their Teams when They play in Turkey- outpower means gives power to fly Players :-) I don't know that Australia is so strong. In which position they ended WCH 2006?

  • Brazil was so close to beating USA...

    You are absolutely right!! We win big success in the tournament which is hosted by Turkey :D :D (2001 Euroepan Basketball Championship(2nd), 2003 European Women Volleyball Championship(agains 2nd :D )) I hope we will manage to play in final again this year :D :D

  • Angola beat Germany.. I think that German's Players thought that it will be easy opponent and They lost match. Against African Teams Opponent should be consecutive because They are playing fast and very aggressive basketball.

  • lithuania is going well too, congrats to slovenia :win:


    Turkey is gonna play against New Zelland probably :thumbsup:

  • If Turkey wants to be in Semi-finals must be wary against every Team. In 2006 in Women's WCH in Semi-final USA was big favourite against Russia, but in 3rd part of game Russia killed USA and then sensational went into Final. So be wary against New Zeland. This is only ball..

  • Today We will see power of Argentina against Serbia. I think Serbia will win.

    It will be a great match..Scola is in great shape but in Serbia Teodosic came back and play very well!! Today Russia-Greece match will be very interesting because the second team from pool C will play with the third team from pool D(Spain)..Russia-Greece match's winner will be 2nd :D But I don't think one of them want to be 2nd and play against Spain in next round!! :lol: :lol:

  • Puerto Rico what have You done. In first 1/16 I think that Serbia beat Croatia and Argentina beat Brazil.

  • Turkey beat China. Turkey won 87 - 40 :dance6:
