Germany had a very disappointing championship this year, maybe their roster was not the strongest, but when the Dominican Republic knocks you out of the tournament, well all you can blame is yourself. However after that loss Germany have shown power against Jordan and crushed them 96:62, and then followed 2nd win in a row, against Senegal, however, it wasn’t an inspiring performance as Germany was trailing most of the match. They surely know that everyone expected more from, so now all they will try to do is go home with a win, although the opponent is not the weakest one.

This tournament wasn’t most promising to Canada as many players refused the invitation, and having in the same group Australia and Lithuania are very hard to advance further, and Canada failed. However, their match against Jordan was just devastating as they won by 55 points 121:76. Now all they can do is to end this tournament with a win, not a loss.
