On the eve of these matches , the FBU, with the support of Parimatch Ukraine, held a press conference in PM Hall, where the head coach and players of the team spoke about the preparations for qualification.
Ainars Bagatskis, head coach of the national team of Ukraine shared the mood of the team before the matches:
There is no room for error in this qualification if we want to go to the World Cup. It is necessary to achieve the maximum result in each match. It is also a great opportunity for players to draw the attention of leading clubs.
Players of the national team of Ukraine Artem Pustovy and Volodymyr Herun noted that playing for the national team is always an honor. Games for the national team also benefit basketball clubs. In the national team you can get new great emotions, see your country and fans, be cheered up – say the leaders of Ukraine.
Philip Orlov, Head of Sponsorship Parimatch Ukraine , added that the company supports the national team:
FBU does its best to have a strong team, to see our team more often in major tournaments. We all need a victory and we are happy to be close to basketball. I am sure that many fans will follow the qualifying matches and we will do everything to increase their number.
We will remind that earlier the national team of Ukraine only once acted at the World Cup. That was in 2014. At the same time, our team has eight appearances at the Eurobasket. In addition to Georgia and Northern Macedonia, our rivals in the group will be the Spanish – the current world champions. So you just need to be cheered up, and this can only be done with the fans.
