    Default [5-8th Classification] Poland vs. Czech Republic

    The two cinderellas of the tournament also deserve a thread.
    I believe Czech Republic is the better team, but the back-to-back games will play a role. So going with Poland here.

    + that they played twice during preparations. once in Czech Republic and don't know where the other game took place.
    Czechs winning both games by 10 and 5 points.
    it's hard to beat the same opponent three times in short period if there isn't a mountain of quality difference between them.
    and probably Czechs will play without Schilb here.
    what's the point when he is not 100%.

    do any of these teams have any motivation for getting the 5th or 6th place, or is this an exhibition game too?

    Even more than the Serbia vs. USA one. Both teams overachieved, so there's not even hurt pride at stake.

    Well, now Poland (another team beaten by Spain) can also take down Team USA.

    Nah, just joking

    Read in Czech press that they has a goal to reach the best WC result ever - 5th place. Czechoslovakia finished 6th in 1970. So they has some motivation left
