I really hate the way they play, but they deserve credit for winning with local men, born and raised there. Same with Spain, only one foreigner on the football team. Basketball, Spain is completely Spanish, Greece is Greek, Italy is Italian, Serbia is Serbian, Croatia is Croatian, Lithuania is Lithuanian, but we have the Lavrinovic twins, they both were born in Lithuania, both speak it fluently, but are either Polish or Belarussian I'm not sure. And look at the results of these countries compared to the ones that naturalize citizens just for sports.
I was curious about that cause Lavrinovic obviously doesn't sound lituanian atall.I can never tell the difference between them,even their game is very similar.Barca tried to sign Darijus but he has gone to Dinamo Moscow.Is Kristof staying at Siena? I think he is the better player.
