We can only be in the same group with one of them I think. And you never know, we may have been lucky to beat them both.

If both Greece and Croatia advance, Macedonia will have 2 wins Group F and will only need to beat the 3rd place team of Group C (probably Georgia) to advance to the quarters.


How was the reaction in Macedonia after the win?

It was madness yesterday. People were celebrating everywhere.

Pretty bad videos, but we celebrated really much, since we are not really successful in sports.

Those players were entitled to obtain the Greek nationality legally. They did not obtain it by following fraudulent practices (e.g. faking papers, bribing govmnt. officials). Those players are Greek by blood. Not Afro-americans who traded their presence to a random national team for a fake euro-passport (i.e. European BB team door opener).

Yep, Americans that were born and raised there that benefit from Greece's citizenship laws - just like Nick Galis.

Nothing happened. They have outplayed Croatia in every part of the game since beggining. Great game from Bosnia. They can beat anybody but they are too inconsistent.

My dad knows the coach of Bosnia. Pretty much what he said. Can beat any team but it all depends on them.

Team USA:

Dominique Wilkins - born in France
Kyrie Irving - born in Australia
Patrick Ewing - born in Jamaica
Hakeem Olajuwon - born in Nigeria
Rony Seikaly - born in Lebanon
Steve Kerr - born in Lebanon
Carlos Boozer - born in Germany

Tim Duncan - born in Virgin Islands.

Supposedly this makes Duncan pure American according to Team USA, yet his country had their own national team and he played on it before he switched to Team USA. Never mind that the Virgin Islands, while a US territory, has its own sovereign country. Officially listed by the NBA as an international player. So yes, Tim Duncan was also born in a foreign country.

Otherwise, US territory Puerto Rico would not be allowed to have its own national team.

Maybe one day another country will catch Team USA in the number of foreign born players used.........but it is doubtful.
