Coming to the Quarter-Finals France seemed like a strong medal contender.
They were the only team not to drop a single game in the entire competition, the first five of them won by a double-digit margin.
After a tough road to the Final Round Lithuania, the hosting team of the Omnitel U16 European Championship Men, qualified to the top four of the championship after a 68-60 win over France.
Lithuania is the second 4th seed team to eliminate a Qualifying Round group champion, after Serbia kicked out Russia earlier today.
France won Group F of the Qualifying Round in the Omnitel U16 European Championship Men after a 68-64 triumph over Spain.
The teams arrived to the game knowing the winner will win the top spot in the group and produced the expected intensity.
France remain unbeatable after a 70-59 win over Croatia in Group F of the Omnitel U16 European Championship Men.
France is still perfect on the top of the group with a 4-0 record, and with a ticket to the Quarter-Finals in their pocket, but a loss to Spain tomorrow will drop them to the second place.
