Last round African qualifiers for the Senior Men’s Basketball World Cup billed for China in 2019 will be disputed this weekend in Angola. Cameroon Basketball Lions in camp in Nairobi, Kenya since Monday, 26 November arrive Luanda this Thursday, 29 November. The team Coached by Bouwe Gilles confront hosts Angola on Friday. Cameroon take on Morocco on 1st December.
Egypt are the Lions’ third andlast opponents on Sunday, 2nd December. The national men’s team must win at least two matches to grab a China World Cup ticket. This is possible going by the analysis of Yves Tsala, Centre Regional Basketball League President. “Angola is the only force to reckon with since they are playing at home. Egypt and Morocco are within reach.
The Basketball Lions won Morocco and lost only on a four-point margin against Egypt during the second round qualifiers,” he said. Nigeria, it should be noted, qualified first hand for the FIBA World Cup scheduled from 31 August to 15 September 2019.
