Argentina beat France 80-66 in a match in which the Argentine player Luis Scola stood out, with 28 points and 13 rebounds, reserving a place for the South American team in the World Cup final, the first since 2002 for the “Argentina”.

In the quarter-finals, France beat favorites and reigning champions the USA, but could not advance to the final as a power forward Rudy Gobert had problems and shots from beyond the area did not enter.

Frank Ntilikina was the French top scorer with 16 points and Louis Labeyrie scored eight points but left the basket unprotected for the aggressive Argentine attack to take advantage.
