Not a simple challenge: Slovenia, Finland and Sweden are waiting for Israel in the next round Israel today


Guy Goodes and his players will meet Germany and Estonia in the second round of the World Cup qualifiers with whom they played in the early house and the three teams he finished and first in the fourth house.

Finland, Slovenia and Sweden are Israel's next rivals in the second round of the World Cup qualifiers to be held in the summer of 2023. The first three from the fourth round in which Israel (with Germany and Estonia) played in the first qualifying round join one with the first three in the third round: Finland, Slovenia and Sweden .

The first three at the end of three game windows will advance to the World Cup.

Each team comes with its balance sheet from the first stage and here the Israeli team has inferiority.

Germany and Finland come in with five wins, Slovenia with four while Israel has only three.

It is difficult to talk about the expected compositions of the national teams.

There is a difference between the summer windows (the first window to be in August) compared to the windows during the season (November and February 23).

In the summer the NBA and Euroleague players participate and in the winter no.

In Slovenia, for example, Luka Doncic and Goran Dragic will be in the next window, but will not appear in their squad later.

In Israel, Danny Abdia will be in the next window in August, but he will not be in the next windows either.

According to the expected game plan, Israel's rivals in the next window in August will be Finland away with Laurie Markanen - a Cleveland player and at home with Sweden. Israel will meet Finland immediately afterwards in Eurobasket in early September.

According to the game plan, anyone who hoped to see Luka Doncic play in Israel with the Slovenian team will be disappointed, since the home game against Slovenia will be in November so Doncic will not be with the Slovenian team.
