Spain: Diaz - We Deserved Bronze Medal

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 Celebrate Bronze

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.
