After getting overpowered by Serbia, the French national team was also defeated by Croatia last night in the “Four Nations” prep tournament that takes places in Cordoba Argentina. A result that sounded the alarm in the camp of “Les Bleus”, less than a week before the Olympic Games in Rio.
Florent Pietrus was not happy at all with the way his team has been performing on both ends of court. “We have not shown the game values that usually make us a formidable team”, he said as reported by L’Equipe. “On these two matches (against Serbia and Croatia) we let our opponents play their game and do whatever they wanted on offense and defense. We defense is the identity of the French team. These are just friendly games of course, but we cannot continue like that. Everyone should be under question, from the players of the starting five, to the ones that come from the bench. I hope that we have not forgotten our goal. Let’s go for a medal.”
On Monday, France will play against Argentina in the last prep match before Rio.
