Germany is riding high on confidence after their monumental victory against the USA in the semi-finals, a win that the players have labelled as “the biggest win in German basketball history”. Now, they are eagerly preparing to face off against Serbia in the final of the 2023 FIBA World Cup. Both teams have shown fearlessness throughout the tournament, especially after overcoming strong North American opponents in the semis.
After their shocking 113-111 win over Team USA, Moritz Wagner, a key player for the German team, emphasized the importance of playing with no fear and displaying hunger and aggression on the court. Germany’s historic triumph has propelled them to their first-ever global basketball final, and it holds immense significance for German basketball and sports culture as a whole.
During the semi-final match, Moritz’s younger brother Franz Wagner showcased his exceptional skills, contributing 22 points and five rebounds. This remarkable performance came after his return to the court following an ankle injury that forced him to miss previous games. Franz expressed his joy at being back in the lineup with his teammates, highlighting the special bond they share. He emphasized that every player is focused on the team’s success rather than individual achievements, creating a highly positive and enjoyable group dynamic.
Meanwhile, Serbia secured their place in the final by defeating Canada with a score of 95-86. This will be Serbia’s second appearance in a World Cup final, adding to the anticipation surrounding the match. The last time these two teams crossed paths in the World Cup was in 2010, where Germany emerged victorious with a narrow one-point lead.
The final game between Germany and Serbia will not only determine the 2023 FIBA World Cup champion but also grant both teams Olympic quotas for Paris 2024 as the top two-ranked European teams. Fans from different regions can catch the action live on FIBA’s streaming service, Courtside 1891 Basketball. In Germany, Magenta holds the broadcasting rights, while in Serbia, RTS will broadcast the game for the local audience.
