Lebanon is formally out of the 2017 FIBA Championship after shedding to Iran 70-80. The Iranian crew is among the match’s favorites and performed an amazing defensive recreation with the assistance of their 2,18m big Hamed Hadadi. Fadi el Khatib & Wael Arakji had been one of the best amongst Lebanese gamers whereas Norvel PELLE didn’t ship as soon as once more.
To be sincere, I wasn’t very optimistic about this recreation as a result of our overseas participant sucks and we can not hold relying on Arakji and Khatib to attain the entire time. We wanted heart participant to spice up our protection and get extra defensive rebounds however we picked the improper overseas participant. We had been catching up with the Iranians at one level however we obtained a bit unfortunate with Khatib lacking a straightforward layup (this by no means occurs) and different gamers lacking a few pictures. I’m shocked the coach didn’t name for any day out after they had been extending the lead and we had been committing errors.
In all circumstances, it’s too late to place the blame in the intervening time. Robust luck to our gamers and all of the followers.
PS: On a facet notice, why wasn’t Ahmad Ibrahim within the nationwide crew? Any concept anybody?
