Fifth-placed games don't usually have the biggest meaning, but Sunday's showdown at the 2007 EuroBasket Women between the yet-reigning champions Czech Republic and 1997 title-holders Lithuania still has loads of meaning.

The winner captures the final berth in the pre-qualification tournament for the 2008 Olympics.
