French team captain Evan Fournier had some harsh words after the close win over Hungary, via Eurohoops:

Why do you frown? We have a game to win. What is this? We played badly. We can talk about the referees, and the opponents, but between us what is this brothel? This is how things are … Why we played yesterday? Cause you liked it? Why we didn’t play this night? Because we played against Hungary? This game goes to the trash can and we leave this behind us. But never again. Never again. This is not us,” Fournier said.
