Lithuania, thirsty of revenge


One of the revelations of recent years in world basketball, Lithuania, is preparing with high hopes of repeating what they have done in Turkey 2010, where they finished third behind Spain and the United States. They seek to continue in the same way. The glittering absence undoubtedly is the guard Sarunas Jasikevius, who recently announced retirement.

The fourth in the FIBA rankings qualified to the 2014 World Championships after losing the final to France in Eurobasket 2013 with a more than acceptable performance for their expectatives.

The Lithuanian squad will debut in Group D against Mexico and then will play against Angola, Australia, South Korea and Slovenia. All the games will be at the recently build Arena stadium in Gran Canaria.

The coach Jonas Kazlauskas have the huge responsibility and honor of commanding his players to glory. Even overcoming their performance made in Turkey. Among the main stars they will bring Jonas Valanciunas, Darjus Lavrinovic, Martynas Pocius and Jonas Maciulis.

In conclusion, Lithuania faces the coming event as a sort of personal revenge from his last placement. With the grounds of the European runner-up team, they will try not to disappoint the people who has an unimaginable hope.
