Croatia men's basketball team defeated Great Britain 86-65 in the group stage of the European Championship. After the game, Croatian player Mario Hazzonia was interviewed by the media.
Speaking about the game's penalty, Hezonja said, "It was so bad that I would love to attend their referee meeting this summer, and I don't know if I can talk about it so I won't be penalized, even though I'm not afraid. But at halftime, the referee told me, 'Sorry, I was standing in a bad position (to see).'"
"I don't know how I'm supposed to be ready for a two- or three-hour game, fighting as hard as I can on the field, and at the same time, the referee wasn't ready for the game." Hazonia said.
For the game, Hazonia had 13 points and 10 rebounds.
