It's definitely a 'see you in the future', EuroBasket! | Jonas Zohore

COPENHAGEN (Denmark) - I can't lie. This one hurts.

We wanted this so much. Not just for the obvious reason of experiencing FIBA EuroBasket, but for our country, the history of Danish basketball and all the wonderful times that our national team share.

We would've killed it even more and brought something extra because not only did we show level among the best in the world, we showed the world HEART!

 

We surprised. 

We shocked. 

We impressed.

We cheered. 

We laughed.

Some yelled. 

Some were silenced.

And some (I) cried.

One thing we all did was believe and dream.

YOU FALL AND YOU GET BACK UP TO BECOME BETTER AND WORK HARDER TOWARDS YOUR GOALS AND DREAMS.

 

Most of the qualified teams have been in this before; we still haven't and we still want to taste the feeling of making our idols our rivals. And we will next time!

That's how it is to be elite in our careers – you fall and you get back up to become better and work harder towards your goals and dreams.

We've proved that we belong on that stage.

It's definitely a 'see you in the future', EuroBasket!
