Defender of the Ukrainian national team Svyatoslav Mikhailyuk shared his impressions of the victory over Great Britain in the opening match of EuroBasket 2022:
“As the coach said, the result does not reflect how good their team was. It was a great game. We played hard, smart. We have limited our mistakes in attack and defense.
We stuck to our game plan and I think we’re really happy with the result. We will try to show our best game in the next matches.
I expect a tough game against Estonia. We will play for the second day in a row, both teams will be tired.
I watched several matches of Estonia, including against Slovenia. They played really hard, they played physically. More than the UK. This will be a test for us. I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s match.”
