  • GREENBERG: THREE EXPERIENCED NATIONALS, THIS AN GREAT CHALLENGE FOR US
7 September 2017

After the draw in Munich, Germany and learning the group and names of opponents, Brad Greenberg, has declared for the Kosovo Basketball Federation's official website (BFK).

Brad Greenberg, Kosovo's selector:

"Speak for 3 strong nationals who will play this year at Eurobasket where we will have the opportunity to analyze their matches. These are three experienced nationals and this is a tremendous challenge for us. I'm excited to see the fans in Pristina on November 23 against Lithuania, but I'm disappointed that we won’t play in February in Pristina, placing Kosovo in Group C and the fact that we now know who our opponents will be it means that now we have to start and get ready for these games. Being a part of this prestigious group and being among 32 nationals from across Europe is another opportunity to develop basketball in Kosovo. This is another exciting day for Kosovo."

Kosovo’s Representative on Thursday learned the group where it will play in European qualifiers for the 2019 World Cup.

Kosovo in the draw that took place in Munich, Germany was drafted in Group C together with Lithuania, Poland and Hungary.

The first match Kosovo will play as host on November 23 against Lithuania.

It should be noted that our representative on Saturday afterwards has secured a place among 32 nationals who will play in the European qualifiers for the World Cup. This stage of the competition will be played in 6 windows, beginning in November 2017 and ending in February 2019.
