European Team Championships: June 12-23, 2012 Dublin (Ireland). The Monaco team roster has just been published in EBL European Championships official website: Fulvio Fantoni (Monaco), Geir Helgemo (Monaco), Tor Helness (Monaco), Franck Multon (Monaco), Claudio Nunes (Monaco), Pierre Zimmermann (Monaco), Jean Charles Allavena (Monaco) not playing captain, Krzysztof Martens (Polonia) coach.
Fulvio Fantoni and Claudio Nunes did not play the last European Championships in Ostend because they were excluded from the Italian national team. Now they are back in the competition under the flag of Monaco, ready to challange their former team-mates: the reigning European champions Norberto Bocchi, Giorgio Duboin, Lorenzo Lauria, Agustin Madala, Antonio Sementa e Alfredo Versace.
