Croatia, the rebuilding


The fourth place in the Eurobasket (which automatically granted a berth in the World Cup 2014 in Spain) will be a nice weight to maintain Croatia on the same elite level of that competition. Their primary objective would be to repeat what has been done in Canada 1994, which finished third. Currently 16th on FIBA ranking leaves a huge expectation in the Balkan squad to hope with a good performance. They will share Group B in Seville with the Philippines, Argentina, Greece, Senegal and Puerto Rico.

The head coach, Jasmin Repesa, will take the hard and privileged task of assembling a team of men as Ante Tomic, Dario Saric, Bojan Bogdanovic and Luka Babic. It would not be easy to try to support the head of the group, who will guide these young and experienced players. The list was already cut to 14 names.

His preparation for the World Cup began on July 20 in Sveti Martin and remained there until 31 March. Then, two friendlies against Canada in Slavonski Brod (both with Croatian victory, 69-64 and 74-59) from 3 to 7 August was in Zagreb (in the meantime he beat Macedonia 69-64) after which he played the tournament Pau (adjusted balance two defeats against France and Serbia and win against Greece). Meanwhile, on August 18 they will travel to Badalona for another friendly matches against Spain and Ukraine or Mexico.
