France have been excellent in their opening two games of the 2021 Olympics basketball tournament. They have played to their strengths, which has helped them gain positive outcomes. Evan Fournier yet again had a terrific outing in France’s last game, scoring 23 points on 8-of-13 field goal shooting. Meanwhile, Nando De Colo chipped in with 17 points and eight assists on the day for the French.
Iran delivered a promising performance against the Czechs in their opening game of the 2021 Olympics basketball tournament despite the defeat. However, they couldn’t keep up the momentum against favorites in the USA, who were looking like the much better side as expected during their last match. Facing France will be as tough as facing the USA, and Iran will be hoping they can at least put up a better fight compared to the way they played against the Americans.
