ORCHIES (EuroBasket Women/FIBA World Championship for Women) - If Spanish ace Amaya Valdemoro is to be given the fitting swansong which her illustrious career deserves by finishing on top of the EuroBasket Women 2013 podium clutching a gold medal, then the depth of her team could be the key.
The legendary star has had to play a backseat role in her final tournament, but that suits her just fine as Spain face up to hosts and favourites France, looking to land their first title in exactly two decades.
"It's amazing to be in another Final," said Valdemoro with her usual smile.
"Our performance in this tournament has been so good, it's been absolutely crazy,
"Everybody contributes something.
"I mean just look at Cristina Ouvina for example. She has hardly played in the tournament, but she then has a very big game in the Semi-Final and does an unbelievable job for us.
"Sure, Alba (Torrens)and Sancho (Lyttle) have led us in lots of games, but we really do have a lot of players who can all bring something in any game.
"Because of this depth and having so many different players who can score or have a big game, I think we will have some good chances ahead of us to go and win this Final."
The Spanish style is one which relies on an upbeat tempo, it's more likely to have a pinch of flair than that of Les Bleues, who rely steadfastly on a more cautious and pedestrian-paced approach.
But, the half-court game of France is power-packed and never less than supremely controlled. Their masterful frontcourt directed beautifully by the expert hand of reigning FIBA Europe Player of the Year,Celine Dumerc.
The French have already matched their silver medal Olympics exploits in London last summer and they are searching for a third successive podium finish in all major tournaments and a third medal in a row at EuroBasket Women, having grabbed gold in 2009 and then bronze two years ago in Poland.
Expectations are sky-high and the pressure will be intense.
For a couple of hours, an entire nation will be focused intently on the action, as France try to live up to top-billing and spark a hometown party in Orchies.
