Pero Antic, F.Y.R.O.M. player:
"I really don't know what happened. France has got a good team, but such a great loss was very painful. However, we are professionals. We have to forg et this loss, clear our heads and practise more."
Jovica Arsic, FYROM Coach:
"The French team put much more energy into the game. From the start we did not play defense as we should. We allow them very easy lay ups and slum dunks. They scored 50 points in our paint which is unacceptable. This is the reason that we have had this result."
Tony Parker, French player:
"I didn't expect such an easy win. For the first time everything that we tried on offence was absolutely successful. The shooting efficiency was really high. Personally I didn't know any FYRoM player, so it was completely New experience."
Vincent Collet, France Coach:
"We wanted to put a lot of pressure on the F.Y.R.O.M. team because we saw their first three games. We could have seen, watching those games, they were able to develop their game. We knew that they have a lot of great shooters especially among the big men who can step out. We wanted to try to make them step back in order to limit the good shooting positions."
