In the training of the National Women’s team, Fasoula-Euches and a meaningful gift from Andron


THE Mariella Fasoula will not strengthen her Women’s National Team in her upcoming games after her serious knee injury, yet she is always there for her teammates. The international center went on crutches to the team’s first training session in Peristeri and received the hugs of all the team members, as well as their warm applause.

In fact, the team manager of the Men’s National Team, Kostas Kotsis, delivered on behalf of the team a meaningful gift to Mariella Fasoula. They were the pieces of a puzzle with the wishes of Spanoulis, Sloukas, Papagianni, Papanikolaou, Mitoglou, Walkap and Larentzakis.

During the first gathering of the Women’s National Team for the matches against Italy (9/11, Vigevano) and against the Czech Republic (12/11) in Chalkida, the change of baton in the leadership of the team took place. After the departure of Katerina Sotiriou from the representative group, the new captain of the Women’s National Team is Artemis Spanou.

Speaking about the new effort of the Women’s National Team, the federal coach Petros Prekas emphasized… “First of all, it is particularly important that we will be at Eurobasket 2025, which will also be held in our country. In the qualifiers we will face very strong teams, such as Italy, the Czech Republic and Germany, but despite qualifying, nothing changes for us. We are going to play as well as we can with maximum concentration and energy. And we have an additional incentive because we will have to make up for the loss of Mariella. It is an opportunity with these matches to become even more of a team, to bond even more. We have also called in new guys doing a little renewal and we will try to give them time.”

Regarding the first time game, the one against Italy he mentioned. “We will face a team with a very good roster. They are one of the best teams in Europe, we will play away from home and it will be a difficult game for us. We will prepare as best as possible in these three days at our disposal.”

Note that EuroBasket 2025 will be held in the Czech Republic, Italy, Germany and Greece with each country hosting a group, while the final eight matches will take place in Athens.
