France created the 2019 Basketball World Cup’s biggest talking point so far earlier in the week by pulling off a shock 89-79 win over a USA side that had been in the hunt for a third consecutive FIBA World Cup title. The Europeans now have another tough challenge in taking on Argentina, a side that dispatched the highly-fancied Serbia. You can watch the match live as it happens from anywhere by following our Argentina vs France live stream guide below.
The last time these two teams faced each other in the World Championships was in 2006 when Argentina dished out a 80-70 defeat to France. The odds today looked somewhat stacked against the Argentines, but head coach Sergio Hernández will like it that way, having been classed as underdogs against Russia, Nigeria and Serbia on their route to the last four.If the South Americans do progress to the final, much will depend on the form of 39-year-old Shanghai Sharks veteran Luis Scola. Now second on FIBA’s all-time scoring list, the 6-foot-8 power forward is registering impressive averages of 17.8 points and 7.3 boards per game and will intent on hauling his side to an historic final.France’s Rudy Gobert is the NBA’s current Defensive Player of the Year, but while he’s been turning in exemplary performances at the back during the tournament with an average 2.3 blocks per game, the Utah Jazz center has also been making his presence felt at the other end of the court in a big way by chipping in with an average 12.7 points and 9.7 rebounds. Couple in the long-range shooting threat of Evan Fournier and you suspect the French will have too much today for their opponents.Want to catch this final eight basketball battle?
