    Default [Turin-Final] Italy vs. Croatia

    Surprised this wasn't up yet. Italy edged Croatia in the group stages, will we see a repeat performance? Who punches a ticket to the Olympics?

    Italy (last OLY appearance 2004)

    or

    Croatia (last OLY appearance 2008)

    It would be nice to see this group of Italy players make a major tournament at least once. Croatia's young guys still have more chances in the future.

    Again, don't believe in this Croatia. Greece can only blame themselves for not taking a big chance of Croats choking yesterday, I bet Italy won't be that merciful... So Italy it is

    Meanwhile the croatian coach Aza Petrovic is heating up the pre-game with his words about "19 ref mistakes pro-Italy in the stage game"...

    Fixed before the start of the 3rd quarter... so in the end it was just a temporary mistake.

    too late, also because everyone realized the score was wrong instantly,
    anyway unbelievable mistake added to all the others

    note : the ref was serbian (not such a great idea !)

    Bargnani and Gallinari in early foul trouble on their home court is an interesting turn of events.

    As I said Croatia has a solid chance.

    Some ita key players are out of shape, Datome is the best IMO but there is no enough balls for him.

    tight game in the fourth

    looking like it will be a great finish, Italy's crowd being a huge factor, absolutely electric.

    And to overtime! Would have been amazing if that full court shot had went in.

    Fun game, i am pretty amazed to see croats defend for once.

    Maybe too much hero ball from Belinelli though.

    that looks like the end Italy's offense just couldn't get its act together when Gallinari fouled out.

    Congrats to Croatia, great day for former Yugoslavia.
