Spain Men’s National team took one step backwards (98-105) yesterday in lost to Italy who were just stronger during the final quarter . Pau Gasol, perhaps the only heartbeat for Spain played well however, not much help from the supporting cast. The weakest position for Spain is at the point guard position. Ricky Rubio is very missed and lapse in defense is very evident.
Spain will face Iceland today and they are expected to win as Iceland has not won any games in the Eurobasket competition to date. If Spain can defeat Iceland, they will await a strong Germany team who could cause problems for them to reach the next round.
