Spain coach Domingo Diaz believes justice has been done after his side claimed a bronze medal in the EuroBasket Women with an 83-65 win over Lithuania in the third-place play-off.
It was third time lucky for Diaz's side, who had lost a preparation game to Lithuania last month and who were also beaten by them in the group stage.
Spain ended the EuroBasket Women on a high by beating Lithuania in Ankara on Sunday to snatch bronze for the third time in a row.
Having suffered a disappointing semi-final defeat to the Czechs, Domingo Diaz's team bounced back for a convincing 83-65 win.
The Czech Republic held on to beat Spain 76-66 to set up a re-match of the 2003 EuroBasket showdown which saw them lose to Russia.
Just like two years ago, Jan Bobrovsky's team has reached the title game with an unblemished record in the competition.
The president of the Spanish basketball association, Jose Luis Saez, has praised the national women's team after they booked their place in the last four of the EuroBasket with a
69-50 victory over Latvia.
Spain convincingly saw off their Baltic opponents in the quarter-finals, opening up a 20-12 lead at the end of the first period and holding onto their advantage until the buzzer.
