Turkey is one of the hottest teams in the league [ especially without no defeats], while France has fallen off, losing their last 2 games.

I like Turkey in this one. France doesn't have anyone to guard Hedo and Ilyasova will beast.

Talk about a rout, Turkey beat em by 18 points. The hosts will face Slovenia next round.

I think many people [ me included ] severely overrated France because of one [ fluke? ] win against a top dog [ Spain ] that was on a poor shooting night. Their last 3 games were against caliber teams, and not surprisingly, they went 0-3.

Not taking anything away from Turkey though. Good team, and one that can make some noise especially with Spain not playing to its top potential.
