During the pre-season, Italy are actually having a good momentum, as they had a successful tune-up games. In fact, they played seven tune-up games, where they remain unbeaten, bringing them confidence here. During those matches, they found strength from their three-pointers, and it seems like a high-speed game is their way of playing. Additionally, Italy’s chemistry on the court is something else, which is why they do not have a hard time playing. When it comes to the World Cup, they are no strangers, as they qualified for 10 times already. However, although they have qualified to 10 World Cup, they have yet to earn a medal. Italy are the favorites from their group to advance to the next round, so expect them to go all-out here. A strong start will be huge for Italy, considering their aims to at least finish their campaign with a medal.

Italy has an excellent squad that will surely make a difference for them in the World Cup. They have experienced and talented squad, with the leadership of Simone Fontecchio. Additionally, they also have Melli, Datome, and Polonara, who are all promising for Italy.

Angola had a different run during their pre-season, as they failed to perform well during their tune-up games. In fact, from the four matches that they played in the tune-up games, it all ended up with losses. One of the main reason why they failed to earn a single win is because offensively, they cannot produce numbers. In fact, from the four matches they played, they only average 66 points per game, which speaks so much of their capability to score. Moreover, when it comes to the World Cup, they only have nine appearances, with their best finish is at the 2006 edition. However, they are a team who have several participation in the Olympics. This experience might be helpful for them, as they are aiming for a success in this campaign. However, it seems like Angola will parade a new breed of basketball players for this generation.

Angola’s key player in their campaign is probably Bruno Fernando, who has the experience internationally. Moreover, guys like Jilson Bango, and Silvio Sousa will be crucial for Angola’s frontcourt, as it will be their core strength.
