Lebanon to play in World Basketball Championship within France, Canada & Latvia's group

NNA - The draw for the Basketball World Championship scheduled for Indonesia, Japan and the Philippines between August 25 and September 10, which took place this afternoon in the Philippine capital, Manila, resulted in the selection of the Lebanese national team to play among the difficult eighth group that includes France, Canada and Latvia.

Lebanon’s coach Jad Al-Hajj said in a televised interview: “All groups are difficult, but today we fell into a very strong group. We are going to war, and whoever goes to war while being afraid will lose it and should not fight it. This is the world championship and our dream. We will go there to fight and achieve surprises.”

He continued, "The Lebanese national team has achieved previous victories in the World Cup, and we will try to achieve victory in every match. We have about three months to be ready for this merit."

This year will be Lebanon's fourth participation in the World Cup after 2002, 2006 and 2010, noting that it won over France (74-73) in 2006 and Canada (81-71) in 2010.
