Skandal!!! Lithuanian Natl Basketball team lost to the Swedes in Lithuania

Lithuanian Kaukenas against a Swedish player

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!
