Serbia in shock

Serbia is in shock. The press in the Slavic country is not at peace with the defeat to Italy, which in Berlin, imposing 94-86 ousted Jokic (32 points for him) and his teammates from the European championship.

It was an unexpected result, with Gianmarco Pozzecco’s team being the protagonist of a splendid second half.

“Shock in Berlin, Italy eliminated the ‘eagles’ from Eurobasket,” headlines the prominent Blic, for example, in its online edition.

Last year, winning in Belgrade, the Azzurri, then coached by Meo Sacchetti, qualified for the Olympics by forcing the Serbs to watch them on television.
