Berlin, Germany France couldn’t get the job done, as they lost in the EuroBasket 2022 final against Spain. Unlike his previous appearances, Moustapha Fall like the rest of the team didn’t have a great game. He ended scoreless, with only 1 rebound and 1 block in 6:31 minutes on the court.

The Olympiacos center expressed his delusion in the mixed zone, trying to explain what happened. “We lost. It’s a bad feeling. They were better than us today, they played better and we didn’t adjust when Juancho started scoring six threes”, he said.

“We didn’t adjust on defense, we turned over the ball too much. There was nothing good from us tonight, we played a bad game. It’s on us”, he admitted, talking about the 88-76 loss.

France was once again surprised at the beginning of the game, as Spain ended the first quarter up by 9 points. “It’s not the first in this competition that we start really bad. I can’t even say it was a mental feeling. They were just better than us today”, Moustapha Fall added.

Now, he’s focused on the next season with the Greek powerhouse. “I’m pretty excited to come back to Olympiacos: I need to start to recover totally and play my game, getting rhythm. I hope to see them soon”, he concluded.
