The miracle did not happen. The Ukrainian national team lost on the road to the Italian team in the selection for the 2023 World Cup, losing the last chance to reach the final tournament.

Note that the entire site match was an even game, as evidenced by the score after three quarters. Going into the final break, the hosts lead 58:57. However, our basketball players do not have enough strength for the final stretch, and they cannot compete for victory in the rivalry.

The wards of Ainars Bagatskis began to make more mistakes, lost the ball, to which the Italians responded with accurate attacks. As a result, with the support of their own stands, “Scuadra Azzurra” was able to win a landslide victory 85:75.
