Social media round-up: Eve of EuroBasket Women 2017 Qualifiers

MUNICH (FIBA EuroBasket Women 2017 Qualifiers) – We check out the best of social media on the eve of the vital last window of the FIBA EuroBasket Women 2017 Qualifiers.

There's no better place to start than with the sensation of the last Final Round in Hungary and Romania and that is teenage phenomenon Maria Vadeeva. She is still working hard to continue her rapid rise with Russia and her new club Dynamo Kursk.

It wouldn't be the same without a #mannequinchallenge and Finland are the latest team to turn up the heat.

Sweden are awaiting their neighbours next Wednesday for an interesting derby game!

We in here! 🙌🏾😂 #teamsweden🇸🇪

Another challenge can be the travelling and airports - but Great Britain seemed to be relaxed ahead of their must-win game in Lucca against Italy.

And, Italy are certainly ready!

Spain are under no pressure having already booked their ticket and Laura Nicholls was in relaxed mood alongside Astou Ndour. The pair are also club team-mates in EuroCup Women with Passalacqua Ragusa.

And, we can officially confirm that she has not shrunk in size - it thankfully is only the camera angle on this one!
