73-83. The scoreboard in the Georgian capital Tbilisi left nothing to the imagination. An unprecedented performance of the Belgian team against world superpower Spain.
“Belgium provides the stunt of the tournament. Fantastic!”, said a very enthusiastic Kris Meertens during the live broadcast on Sporza.
“This is a historic victory. What are we experiencing here… Really, we have never experienced this.”
“Stunts against Serbia and Lithuania, yes, but in the absence of a few stars among those countries. But this, against Spain, is insane. Against the great Spain, against the world champion. Belgium beats the world champion!”
“It’s fun. Belgium wins 73-83. This is the stunt of the weekend, the stunt of the European Championship. Great job!”
“National coach Dario Gjergja can be proud of his team. Nobody expected this. Yesterday such a difficult game against Montenegro and now Belgium wins the world champion. And so deserved… So deserved… Worked so hard… Yes , that’s clever of the Lions.”
“The statistics say it all: 31-40 for Belgium in rebounds, 16-17 for Belgium in assists. Those rebounds are especially great.”
“What a pleasure it is. Show the best moments of the second half again, yes. This match will go down in the Belgian history books. That one Belgian supporter who was here in Tbilise, he can tell it again: the Lions have advertising created.”
