The Swedish basketball girls are ready for basketball-EM 2019



Amanda Zahui.

A year ago, she had no idea of ​​the national team.
But Louice Halvarsson came to Sweden to the European Championship despite the loss to Italy.
"Now anything can happen," said the star.

Sweden needed to win Italy to be sure of space in the EM basketball. But even a second place in the group could depend on the results of other groups.

Sweden started well and had 15-19 after the first time. Then they lost everything.

Italy made 21-6 in the second phase and went to line 40-21 in half time.

"Feeling totally ill"

But Louice Halvarsson went on. The star, who returned to basketball court in January after two years of health and birth absences that ended, took Sweden back in the game and made sure that only 41- 50 was the underground before the end.

Sweden continued with the collection and three minutes later, the distance was only two points. Italy managed to keep together and win the game by 62-56.

But it was not important for those who also qualify for the European Championship as one of the best six-thirds.

– She's feeling sick. It was a bit weird to celebrate when we lost, but we did what he needed, said Halvarsson.

Did you believe this year ago?

– No, I could not think of it a year ago. But it was a good time to come back after my health and it became a mom and it will be so fun to play my third EM.

"It can take a medal"

The national team's betting star decided when François Gomez took over the national team – and after that, the Eldebrink twins had been cheated.

– We're lying on it. I always know that he has this potential and is almost even better now that she is a mother. It was a game that she turned to others, says Frida Eldebrink.

Guarden was the best player against Italy with 19 points. Now she and Halvarsson believe in EM.

"If we're getting together, we can take a medal, we have incredible potential in the team. Now we have more time to work together. We have not been a hundred percent," said Eldebrink .

Halvarsson agrees.

– I believe that anything can happen at this time. We can see who we got in the group, we've got some sort of luck with it from before. But we will move on from the group and then anything can happen, he says.

EM basketball is played in Latvia and Slovakia June 27 to 7 July 2019.
