France, with a defense of sacrifice and Tony Parker copy attack, managed to qualify for a new European semifinal by muzzling her to Slovenia (72-62) in Euro 2013 Gentlemen basketball Wednesday 18 September in Ljubljana.

The Blues have managed to s’ impose after a bitter game, tense, uncertain end to end, and highly tactical. We had rebuked them for their lack of fighting spirit and cohesion so far have shown a real esprit de corps in a room obviously very hostile and behind the national team.

The French experience of this kind of meeting you has to forget their early Euro infancy, marked by three defeats worrying. This time, leaders have led the charge, as Parker (27 points), and the supporting roles are perfectly into place.

Now embarked on the road to a new medal, the Blues will have a challenge of a different order against the Spanish , double defending title , in the semifinals Friday (a priori to 21 hours) for the contrast of the final of Euro 2011 in Lithuania.

That game promises great flights and a lot of emotions after the basketball lesson given by Spain to Serbia in the quarter (90-60). France will play the semi-final the twelfth European history – for a total of six medals (two silver, four bronze) – the fourth in the era Parker (silver in 2011, bronze in 2005).

French and Spanish have a long history. No team is also often found in the way the Blues in recent years. The Spaniards were eliminated in the quarter-finals of Euro 2009 and the Olympics in 2012, and were beaten in the final of Euro -2011, often after confrontations passionate and stormy. The last French victory was the 2010 World Cup in Turkey . The Blues are eight defeats this exceptional Spanish generation, which was also the world champion in 2006 and Olympic silver medalist in 2008 and 2012.


For Slovenia, who organized the largest sporting event since its independence in 1991, the loss is dramatic. For several years now, Slovenes align one of the best teams’ of Europe , without the podium. Their best result is a fourth place in 2009. Wednesday night, they probably suffered the weight of the event, only managing to truly unleash in the second half.

But we also put it on a credit French defense finally found after having been greatly criticized for fifteen days. The tactical choices put Nicolas Batum, exceptional in this role, Goran Dragic on defense, the other star has been without doubt the key to the game. At the break, the leader of the Phoenix ( NBA ) had scored only 4 points (2 of 7 shooting). He finished with 18 points on 6 of 16. Deprived of its engine and particularly clumsy, Slovenia did not find offensive solutions as fast Thurs

In front, the Blues have also been bothered much by the strategy implemented by Bozidar Maljkovic coach Serbian champion of Europe with CSP Limoges in 1993, and an apostle of a game based on defense and very rhythm controlled. But they were able to rely on Parker, although tight closely to supply regular brand. This is still the leader of the Spurs who went by his aggressiveness get some baskets under the panels and throws to put France to (36-26, 24th).

In the last minutes of extreme tension, the French were able to keep a cool head, not deviating one second of their defensive options, despite the address found in Slovenia (50-47, 31 e). And on offense, they managed to scrounge point by point, with Boris Diaw captain courage to relay Parker finally to create a definitive gap (65-58, 38th).
