DBB men in Bamberg against Finland
Herbert’s team needs one more win to secure World Cup qualification
The exciting FIBA EuroBasket 2022 is before the FIBA World Cup 2023! The German national men’s basketball team is still living off its great success, winning the bronze medal at the “home European Championships”. But the next games are already very close. Go to the betting app and get all the benefits of the upcoming exciting games. On Friday, November 11, 2022, at 7:00 p.m., the ninth World Cup Qualifier (FIBA World Cup 2023 | Indonesia, Japan, Philippines) is already on the schedule. And it will be played in Bamberg! The opponents will be the Finns, who have already qualified for the World Cup and are tied with the German team (7:1) at the top of the table in Qualification Group J. The first three teams qualify for the World Cup. The first three teams qualify for the World Cup next year, but the German team still needs success to secure qualification. Three days after the match in Bamberg, the DBB team will travel to Slovenia for a match (Mon., Nov. 14, 2022, Koper).
DBB men want to take European Championship momentum with them
Which face the DBB men will have at the upcoming World Cup Qualifiers has not yet been determined at this point. Whether EuroLeague players can join them will be decided in the short term. What is certain, however, is that the German fans will experience a team that wants to take the momentum of EuroBasket 2022 with them to the qualifiers and once again offer their audience the best basketball entertainment. Local hero and European Championship player Chris Sengfelder will certainly be part of the German squad, as will his bronze medal “colleagues” Justus Hollatz (CB Breogan/ESP) and Jonas Wohlfarth-Bottermann (Veolia Towers Hamburg). And perhaps Niels Giffey, whose new club has not yet been determined. They will probably be joined by players such as Karim Jallow (Ratiopharm Ulm), David Krämer (Basketball Löwen Braunschweig), Leon Kratzer (Telekom Baskets Bonn), Kenneth Ogbe (EWE Baskets Oldenburg) and Gavin Schilling (CSP Limoges/FRA). The final nomination of the squad will be made at a later date.
Theoretically, the DBB selection can still be overtaken by the Swedes in addition to Finland and Slovenia. To do so, Germany would have to lose all four games and the Swedes would have to win all four games and win in Germany with a difference of more than 17 points. Admittedly, that’s a pretty wild theory, but so that you don’t “have to” think about it any further, a win against Finland would be just about right.
