Nevertheless, Slovenia wasn’t about to simply pass off the opportunity to get a step closer to a medal. Thanks to a great 3pt performance and a cool head in the final two minutes, they are meeting Spain.

The aggressive approach on both sides made it nearly impossible to simply pick a favorite. Undoubtedly one of the best Eurobasket matches so far.

Up until a month ago, very few people knew of the Iceland National Team. Tonight, they beat England, moving into the quarterfinals of the Eurocup. The team which is not worth millions, whose players have regular jobs and an occasional extra consonant in their last names, has brought up millions of fans around the world to enjoy the victory of sport, above everything else. The final result was 2:1. After the shocking result, Hodgson resigned as England’s manager.

Another great victory for the Serbian National team on the Eurobasket. This time, against an expectedly tough opponent. The Czech team, lead by the 2,13m tall Jan Vesely, made sure there were no easy points. Their precision from the 6,75 border, as well as a strong defensive pace, gave team Serbia, a run for their money.

Očekivano težak meč protiv selekcije Češke, obeležen stalnim izmenama u oba sastava, te odličnim partijama Teodosića, Bjelice i Ercega. Kapiten je ovom prilikom uspeo da obori sopstveni rekord na šampionatu, od 13 asistencija, zabeleživši danas 12 poena i 14 asistencija, uz dabl-dabl učinak. Nemanja Bjelica imao je večeras 14 poena i 10 skokova, kao i 5 ličnih grešaka do kraja četvrte četvrtine.

Još jedna izuzetna pobeda Delfina! Srbija je u četvrtfinalu Svetskog prvenstva u vaterpolu! Rezultat koji, s obzirom na izuzetnu reputaciju srpske reprezentacije, ni najmanje ne iznenađuje, ali svakako ih približava željenim ciljevima.

Izabranici Dejana Savića su obezbedili sebi prvo mesto u grupi, i samim tim više odmora, dok čekaju svog narednog protivnika u nokaut fazi turnira. Duel između Italije i SAD.  Tri dana pauze mogu da budu mač sa dve oštrice za srpsku ekipu, zbog mogućeg remećenja takmičarskog ritma, ali jasan je stav da nema opuštanja.

Ovo je bila rezultatski najzahtevnija srpska pobeda, ali i još jedan dokaz klase Reprezentacije. Nakon početnih kolebanja, Delfini su uspeli da se u poslednjoj četvrtini izdignu i obezbede sebi trijumf nad snažnim rivalom.

Najkorisniji igrači Srbije u današnjoj utakmici bili su: Filip Filipović, Stefan Mitrović i Milan Aleksić, sa po dva pogođena gola.


The Serbian National team is now in the quarterfinals of the Waterpolo World Championship, after beating Australia 10-9. A victory that doesn’t come as a surprise, considering the reputation of the Serbs, but also represents a step closer to the desired goals. The players of coach Dejan Savić have reached the first place in their group B, and three days more of rest, as they wait for their next opponent. The winner in the match between Italy and the US. The extra days of rest might be a double-edged sword, considering that they can disturb the winning rhythm of the team. It is clear that there will be no time for relaxation, but for regrouping, and making sure not to repeat the same mistakes in the further stages of the competition.

This was the most demanding game for the Serbian Dolphins so far, but another proof of their class. After various difficulties, especially in the initial phases, they have managed to rise in the last quarter, and reach victory against a strong rival.

The most useful players of the Serbian team were: Filip Filipović, Stefan Mitrović and Milan Aleksić, scoring two goals each.
