The national team of Ukraine on basketball found out their opponents in the finals of the women’s European championship which will be held in 2019 in Serbia and Latvia.
Group stage the draw sent wards Goran Bošković in a group. Ironically, Ukrainka in the group stage again, like in qualifying, will meet Spain, our opponent will be Latvia and the UK.
“I believe that our group is very strong. Always when expecting a draw, then hope not to get one group with a strong team and the team of hostesses. In our case, will have to play in a group where there are the strongest team of Europe and Latvia, which will host matches of our group. Although each team in the European championship threat and any opponent must be respected. Another thing is that I wish we played in Serbia, and that gives me a lot of reasons, but it was decided by lot. In any case, we should be focused on our game, our preparation for competitions, this is the main goal, because only we can solve all our problems“, — quotes the words of Bošković official website of the basketball Federation of Ukraine.
