Greek National Team plays FYROM in the premiere of the Eurobasket and Dimitris Priftis admitts that it is not an easy game: "Ιn tomorrow's game there will be peculiarities as it happens in every premiere. You must be very focused when you enter the court. There is the pressure of the first game. FYROM is a team that has some experienced players who have played again in these events such as Stojanovski siblings, the experienced point guard Ilievski and the center Samardinski. This body has been framed by some younger players. We should first control the flow of the match, and set defense plays to be able to win this game.
Initially we should stop their open court, as this is what tehy look for in the game and at the same time limit their long shot tries. It is generally a team that plays with experience playing a basketball resting in simple partnerships, they are good in five against five but have several weaknesses in defense, which we must take advantage of. In the offense, by ensuring the defensive rebounds, we should look for the easy score and at the same time to play as a team to get the victory in this premiere" Priftis said
