“We put it on the right tracks from the beginning.”

At the end of the victorious debut at Eurobasket 2022 – Italy led the game against Estonia since the first quarter, operating the decisive tear in the second partial – Azzurri captain Gigi Datome made the following statements, reported by the official FIP website: “It will be nice to play against Giannis Antetokounmpo even if Greece has many other important players, today we were good at making a game that was not at all apparently easy. We put it on the right tracks from the beginning, nice to play in such a warm, festive and sporting Forum.”

He was then echoed by Achille Polonara, who said, “We played a great game to start our European Championship, at home and with the extraordinary Forum crowd that acted as a sixth man. Tomorrow a difficult game awaits us against Greece, we will have to give 100 percent if we want to have hopes of victory. A battle awaits us and we need the perfect game but we are ready, this team never backs down and knows how to react to adversity.”
