The (extended) list of the Blues for Euro 2022

Vincent Colette selected a group of 17 players for the EuroBasket, September 1-18, 2022.

And die cast. Almost … A little over two months before the European Championships but three weeks before the rally on July 29, in Insip, Vincent Colette revealed this Thursday the list of players called up for the 2022 European Basketball Championships (September 1-18). An expanded group of 17 players, as suggested by the coach of the French national basketball team, Monday, after a round against Hungary (81-40), in the 2023 World Cup qualifiers.I want us to get 12 euros very quickly because the preparations are short and every time we have to choose, we lose some time“After the match, I started be in sports .

In this list we find nine of the 12 silver medalists at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, including inn owners Evan Fournier and Rudi Joubert of course, as well as Mustapha Vall, Gershon Yabusel or Timothée Loew Caparrot,”Team pillars from last yearCoach Colette said. Also in attendance in Japan are Andrew Albisi, Thomas Hurtl, Frank Ntelikina, and Vincent Poirier. As expected, Nicolas Batum and Nando de Colo are not among them, they prefer to “rest” this summer in order to better return to work in the next deadlines, the World Cup 2023 and of course the Olympic Games in Paris 2024.The absence of Nando de Colo and Nico Batum will not be filled with ease as one might sometimes thinkVincent Colette mentioned the two to those skeptical. Peter Cornelli was not called.

This came in response to a question about Théo Maledon’s impressive performance during the last window, who this time said yes to the national team after turning down the invitation last summer. The Oklahoma City player returned to this rejection last year Le Figaro A few weeks ago. “He is talented. He’s one of the players we should lead, and coach them to advance because we’re going to need these guys to do somethingAfter Hungary, Vincent Colette has confirmed.

Wembanyama yes, no speaker

Among the highlights on this list for the Euro is clearly Victor Wimpanyama’s first call. From a 2.19-meter summit and aged just 18, the Ile-de-France phenomenon will take the heart of Team France. The beginning of a long story, we can imagine… After a year in Aswel, the former Nanterre will join Boulogne-Levallois, coached by Vincent Colette, but his future has already been decided: he will join the NBA as soon as 2023. He is promised selection in the selections The first of the draft, even the first. A new one with Wimpanyama and a ghost with Fabian Causeur? Not. At 35, the former Choletais is still dashing. He proved it by winning a new title for the Spanish champion with Real Madrid, along with Poirier, Yabusele and Heurtel… The player who has played only one match in the blue, and his 30th match, in 2018, since the London Olympics in 2012″.In my head, the blues, the page was upside down. But the opportunity is tempting‘ He said in the team , which we imagined in the list. Finally, it’s not one of them.

Note that Amath Mbaye, the last but “tanned” Olympic campaign package for the 2019 World Cup, is back. The French champion and best player in the final with ASVEL, Elie Okubo, who expressed his desire to wear the jersey that the rooster hit a few weeks ago for him. Le Figaro , is also part of the list, as are Isaia Cordinier, Mam Jaiteh, William Howard and Terry Tarpey. Not Louis Labery, Yakouba Ouattara, or Mathias Lesort. Nor do NBAers Kilian Hayes, Jaylen Hoard or Axel Toupane.
