France yesterday sealed his pass to the final of U19 World Cup disputed in Riga with a solid victory against Serbia by 75 to 69. The most peculiar thing was that the Gauls could hardly count on their star, Victor
Wembanyama, for fault problems.
The French giant has been without a doubt the great sensation of the tournament, with stellar performances and highlights to remember. Yet yesterday it was seen limited to just one point and three rebounds after adding four quick fouls against Serbia.
The French will now have to face USA, which got rid of Canada in the other semifinal of the tournament. The Canadians, in turn, had eliminated Spain in the previous round of the tournament.
USA took advantage of a partial 17-0 to control the match and end up taking the victory by 92 to 86. This Sunday they will face France for the U19 basketball world championship.
