GAME REPORT


FYROM End Portugal Run

Portugal's winning streak came to an end on Saturday in Skopje against FYROM.

The Portuguese have been the surprise of qualifying action so far and had compiled a 3-0 record going into today's game, including a 108-90 defeat of FYROM in Portugal.

But in Skopje it was the home team who dictated the pace.

Portugal put up a fight for 20 minutes, but FYROM gradually pulled away in the second half. They sealed an impressive second half display with a 29-point fourth quarter and eased to an 83-63 win.

Vrbica Stefanov top scored with 19 points while Dime Tasovski and Todor Gecevski scored 18 each.

FYROM's win leaves both sides with 7 points in Group B.

Portugal have a slight advantage in that their final two games against Israel and Bosnia & Herzegivina will be played at home, while FYROM must travel to Sofia and Sarajevo for their remaining games.
