Mexico, with nothing to loose


Mexico must ratify the good moment in the World Cup after the title in the FIBA Americas tournament last year in Venezuela. Grown in confidence, the team led by Spaniard coach Sergio Valdeolmillos will play this event for the first time in 40 years.

Currently 24th in the FIBA ranking, the Aztec team will play in Group D in Gran Canaria, facing Lithuania, Slovenia, Angola, South Korea and Australia.

Regarding the possible roster that will represent the Mexican team, stand out Pedro Meza and Gustavo Ayon, MVP in the championship won by Mexico, who recovered from a shoulder injury. The final list is already defined.

Between 19 and 24 July, the Green played a series of three friendlies against Cuba (where they won two and lost one), on July 28 won against Dominican Republic in Mexico City, from 1 to 7 August played the Centrobasket tournament at home, that they won undefeated (victory in the final against Puerto Rico by 74-60 included) and the two friendly matches in the triangular against Argentina and Brazil in Buenos Aires on 9 and 10 August.

Finally, no more or less than any other rival, the Mexican national team will seek to strike needed to go round and compete with the best in the world. Its key commitment is to make a firm and tough defense, and to maintain a high motivation level despite being far from the warmth of its people.
