USA aims for a perfect group run

USA is looking to end their group stage in the contest with a win against Jordan, to have a better momentum for the next round. While USA is a team who have yet to suffer a defeat, Jordan have yet to win a single game in the contest. With that, USA is sitting at the top of the group standings, while Jordan is at the bottom since they are at the second. This will be the last group stage for USA and Jordan in the World Cup, and Jordan will likely be eliminated in the contest. This is actually the first time that these two teams will meet in their history. Their meeting is on August 30, 2023, at 4:40 PM (GMT+8), as USA eyes a good momentum.

USA proved dominance in the World Cup, as they were able to win their two previous games in the World Cup. They won against Greece and New Zealand, proving why they are one of the favorites to win in the contest. Although USA did not have a good opener in the World Cup, this squad were able to improve so much. Anthony Edwards was their on-court leader, which is the result of Bobby Portis and Steve Kerr’s good selection. However, it seems like Brandon Ingram have yet to show himself in the contest, as he still struggle in the World Cup. Now that they are going against Jordan, Ingram could take this as an opportunity for him to show his skills. Considering that USA is one of the favorites to win the title in the World Cup, they are looking for an opportunity to prove this.

No injured players for the USA squad, and although they are a young squad, they were able to prove that they are still a dominating squad.

Jordan’s basketball team struggled in the first round of the FIBA World Cup against Greece, losing 92:71. Their second match against New Zealand was also disappointing, with multiple losses and missed opportunities. The team’s greatest talents are Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Ahmet Duverioglu, who can pose a threat to weaker opponents. However, their performance against the USA will be crucial. Freddy Ibrahim also had a good game against New Zealand, but the rest of the team is not at the level required to challenge the top favorite. Jordan’s head coach, Wesam Al Sous, emphasized the team’s primary goal of demonstrating their ability to compete with any team, regardless of opponent quality, and earning the respect of their nation.

Just like their opponent, Jordan is with a healthy squad coming into this game, which will work for their advantage.
