Thursday and Friday night the two semi-finals in the ongoing World Championship France 2017 will be played. France vs Slovenia on Thursday 21.00 CET and Croatia vs Norway Friday 2100 CET.

France are favorites. It’s undiscussable. They’ve won all their matches, playing on home court, have the most experienced squad and are expected to win this championship.

Slovenia, the young team that have reached an unbeliaveble semifinal, are now up to play against many of the players idols.

– Two or three years ago, my young players wanted to have the autographs from Daniel Narcisse and Nikola Karabatic, and tomorrow, we are going to play against these perfect players, the Slovenian head coach Veselin Vujovic told the day before semifinal.

Slovenia have once before played a semifinal, in Spain in 2013 they got a 4th place, and now it seems it’s going to be another 4th place.

France and Slovenia have met nine times in major competitions with a 6-1-2 in matches in favor of France.
