Australia vs France World Cup L

In Australia vs France, the Boomers have a chance to achieve the first medal ever for the men's basketball team at the FIBA Worl Cup.

Australia has lost to Spain in the FIBA World Cup semi-finals. Boo! The Boomers now have a rematch against France, with a Bronze medal on the line. While the Spanish will face Argentina in an unlikely grand final a few hours later.

The Australian Boomers still have a chance o making history. A win in the second Australia vs France match of the FIBA World Cup will win the team a bronze medal. The Boomers have never acheieved a medal before in an international tournament, having falled one match short previously at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

The second FIBA World Cup Australia vs France basketball match is scheduled to start at 5.50pm (AEST) on 15 September. We have a detailed guide to watching the FIBA World Cup, but there is a summary at the end of this guide. The long and short of it: grab this 14-day free Kayo Sports trial and tune in with ease. On the same free trial you can watch the Spain vs Argentina final as well, not to mention 50 other sports live.

Both Australia and France had great starts to the tournament, winning all four of their games prior to their initial meeting. France lost that game, but then battled past Team USA only to fall again at the hands of Argentina. Australia would continue on its winning run up to the Spain battle, so will go into the Austalia vs France match as slight favourites.

Still, the French are the 3rd-ranked basketball team on the planet heading into the FIBA World Cup. Australia is ranked back in 11th, so on paper, there is a fair gap between the pair.
