After the game, Greek coach Thanasis Skourtopoulos admitted that Greece missed injured Kostas Sloukas: “Maybe the players are affected by the fact that Sloukas is missing. We have 15 more days and three games coming up. We hope that Sloukas will be fit to play when he is needed, we will have him in the team in the FIBA World Cup even with a small delay”.

Tomorrow (18/8), Greece will clash with Serbia at 19:30 CET while Turkey will play against Italy at 17:00 CET
