Skandal!!! Lithuanian Natl Basketball team lost to the Swedes in Lithuania
The game took place in a new Šiauliai city sports arena, which was open only few day ago. The Swedes managed to get into front from the first minutes and won the game 62:69 (18:22, 14:15, 18:19, 12:12).
Basketball is a second religion in Lithuania. The national team is getting ready for the European Championship. This is a major blow to a new coach of the national team.
I spoke with two Swedish tourists in Vilnius, who happen to be in a bar where the game was on. After admitting that that they didn’t know much about basketball they said that they were surprised to learn that Sweden had a national team at all….
Just imagine if Lithuania would beat the national Swedish Ice Hockey team… Congratulations Sweden, for those of you who are interested in basketball!
