Spain did everything possible not to have to experience again something similar to the final moments of their semi-final loss to Belgium, and they succeeded.
If, for Sweden, fighting for the bronze medal is something of a prize, for Spain, considered one of the favourites of the competition, it is a big dissapointment.
After the Quarter-Final thriller in which they beat Turkey in the closing seconds, the Belgian players had presented their own version of the "Haka" dance.
Emma Meesseman's fabulous game in the Quarter-Final with Turkey earned Belgium a 60-58 win and a brought them one step from securing a medal.
