"It has been a pleasure to captain this team", explained the Real Madrid player.
Rudy Fernandez spoke to the media after Spain beat Argentina in the final (75-95) and became world champions. The Real Madrid player was happy with the achievement: "This is incredible. I don't have words to describe how I feel. We've had a very good tournament from the beginning and the group we have has been very important. As the tournament went on, we've gone from strength to strength. The best team showed up in the important moments. We deserve to be world champions”.
"We knew that if we wanted to reach the final against a team like Argentina we had to give that bit extra. We've all been concentrating on the tournament and we knew when to dig in and when to enjoy ourselves on the court. It's one of the best teams I've ever played for. And this year has been very special for me. It's been a joy to be able to captain this team”.
"I dedicate it to everyone. Especially my family, my father, my sister, my grandfather, who died in the summer. To all the people who believed in me. Without these people I wouldn't be here right now to lift that trophy”.
