As mentioned on Mundo Deportivo, Rubio states: “We have been training very well for a week in Madrid. Setting up, catching very good feelings.”

“It was the first game in two months and no matter how much you train, the sensations in a game are very different”, he adds.

Rubio also focuses on Sergio Rodriguez, who believes that complements the team perfectly. “We got together very well. He’s a more scoring guard and I’m more of a distributor in the game. We are going with a lot of confidence and we can both end the game at any time.”

As for the chances that Spain has in the Eurobasket, he explains that “We go with a lot of confidence. We know a lot but there are very new faces and we have to adapt a little.”

Spain plays Montenegro, Croatia, Czech Republic, Romania and Hungary in Group phase of Eurobasket: “A complicated group? It’s always good to start at 100% from the start. We know that if we complicate things, it’s going to be tougher.”
