Highlights

France handed the United States their first loss in the FIBA World Cup in 13 years to advance to the semi-finals in China.

France will play next on 13th September against Argentina, who advanced by defeating Serbia.

Shooting guard Donovan Mitchell of the NBA's Utah Jazz scored 29 points as he helped the Americans to cut down a 10-point French advantage in the 3rd quarter and seize back the lead in the southern Chinese city of Dongguan.

However, the French led by the Gobert and sharp-shooting small forward Evan Fournier of the Orlando Magic had the last laugh, winning the match by a margin of 10 points.
