The Italian U20 National Team finishes its European Championship, in eighth position, after the most thunderous defeat in this event, in the useless ending with Spain (85-60) which was worth the seventh place.

After a balanced 39 minutes, Saturday’s match against Turkey also had a bitter ending; in one of the races between the disappointed teams from the quarter-final play-offs, the Azzurri lose their heads in the last minute, defeating all efforts made up to that point with an intentional foul and a technician cynically capitalized by the Turks, who made the hostilities of a beautiful and well-played match closed.

Difficult to analyze the individual and the whole group, after these championships that will be the last appearance in the youth championships for boys born in 1998, they remain compliments because in previous international competitions, this group has always shown character, personality, individuality and obtained excellent results.
