France with a strong squad mean business

France’s Basketball team has a very respectable history, especially in recent years. They have won the silver medal twice in the Olympics in 1948 and 2000, this will be their tenth appearance in the games. The French have eight Fiba World Cup participations winning the Bronze medal twice in 2014 and 2019.

The French team coach is Vincent Collet who has a host of players playing in the NBA and leading European clubs. Nicolas Batum of the LA Clippers, Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz, Evan Fournier of the Boston Celtics, and Nondo de Colo of Fenerbahce are the backbone of the team that coach Collet will depend on.

The USA stand out favorites to win the gold medal

After the decision by Fiba for the United States to field players from the NBA, the USA men’s basketball team won the next six out of seven Olympic gold medals. The Americans have played in 18 Olympics winning the gold on 15 occasions. The USA has played in the Fiba World Cup 17 times and won the gold seven times.

The Current USA Basketball national team consists of the best NBA players. Kevin Durant, Devin Booker, Jayson Tatum are some of the names coach Gregg Popovich has at his disposal in the Tokyo Olympics. The US team suffered surprise defeats in their recent friendlies against Nigeria and Australia but they had better performances against Spain and Argentina.

France vs USA Prediction

Despite having some of the best players in the NBA, the French national team didn’t have a good preparation period for the Tokyo Olympics and lost all three friendly games.

Coach Collet must urge his players to have much better performances on Sunday against the US team whom the French know very well.

Coach Popovich has arguably the best players in the world at his disposal, Lebron James, Anthony Davis, James Harden among others are missing but with the current team, Popovich must not find trouble in claiming the gold.
