France, Czech Republic Battle For Third
France will look to bounce back from their most lopsided defeat of the tournament to finish third in the U18 European Championship for Women on Sunday.

In what was arguably their worst - and only their second - defeat of the tournament, the French fell behind early on and appeared to be a shadow of their former dominant/confident selves as they were humbled 68-45 by Lithuania, the last undefeated team in the competition.
