Greece seeks to overcome


Perseverance. That is the key word that should show Greece in the 2014 World Cup if they pretend accessing the semifinals. The fifth in the FIBA ranking is no accident but a whole project, respected and solidified over the years.

They will play Group B with Senegal, the Philippines, Argentina, Puerto Rico and Croatia. The venue will be Seville, and the reformed Palacio de Deportes San Pablo.

Some good background of the Hellenic squad are their eleventh place in the last Eurobasket, also they hosted the 1998 World Cup and became runner-up in Japan 2006, their best result in its history.

The bad news is that for this selected got off the possible call the following players: Koufos, Spanoulis and Schortsianitis. Three key players to solve the puzzle.

However, beyond those already confirmed losses, head coach Fotis Katsikaris doesn’t hide his displeasure about this, but to put one’s little bit with names such as Giannis Antetokounmpo, Nick Calathes, Bogris Georgios Kostas Kostas Papanikolaou and Vasileiadis.

Greece had few previous friendlies. After the quadrangular in Pau (66-64 victory against Serbia, and defeats against host France against Croatia 73-81 and 66-68), they will play from Saturday 16 against Lithuania, Slovenia and New Zealand in Kaunas, and closes their preparation with a home-and-away match against Turkey.
