The victory of Croatia against Tunisia sent them to the semifinals where they will face the Greek national team. Bojan Bogdanovic admitted that it is going to be a difficult game which, of course, means a lot to them.

“We were a little bit tired so we didn’t play the way we were supposed to play, especially on offense. In the second half, we started to share the ball better, we got many fast break opportunities. Now a new tournament starts and we are going to play against Greece. It s going to be a tough game. In both our previous games we played great defense but on offense we didn’t share the ball well, we didn’t score many free throws, especially last night. So I hope that we are going to improve for the next game.”

About Greece and the key points of the match: “Both teams are young and both teams are missing many players. Greece is a very athletic team so we have to respond in the same way”.

On what the game means for him: “It means a lot. Everybody is playing for the Olympic Games, to go to Rio. So everybody has some extra motivation. It is going to be a tough but also interesting game.”
