The German national basketball team can qualify for the 2023 World Cup this Friday (7 p.m. / Magentasport). If the team of national coach Gordon Herbert wins against Finland in Bamberg, participation in the tournament in Japan, Indonesia and the Philippines is guaranteed. Germany have won seven out of eight qualifiers so far and are leading the group ahead of Finland. The stars around Dennis Schröder and Franz Wagner are not there, unlike when they won bronze at the European Championships, because the NBA does not take the World Cup qualification of the world association Fiba into account with their calendar.
