Zisis: “We can make the Greeks proud – We believe that Giannis will be with us”


The lottery brought one difficult and two passable obstacles in its way National team of Greece for the 2023 World Cup!

The “blue and white” were drawn in the third group, which will be held in Manila and will consist of Greece, USANew Zealand and Jordan!

THE Nikos ZisisGM of the National Team, spoke about Greece’s goals in the Mundobasket, while commenting on whether the John Antetokounmpo.

What he said in detail:

“I think the draws are made to be made. We are getting closer, even though we are in full racing activity, to this great event. We are about three months away from the start of pre-season and four months from the tournament. We believe in our coaches, in coach Itoudis, in our players and we want them all to be healthy in order to represent our country worthily and make all Greeks proud. I have also experienced it as a player, you can judge a draw as favorable or not, but what matters is how you present yourself. I think it is important for us that we will not have extra travel and we will play all our games in Manila. There is the peculiarity that we will also play a friendly with the USA in Abu Dhabi before the finals.

The season is in full swing and a lot can happen. The most important thing is that we are all together, healthy and united. We have made a start since last year and I think we can make the Greeks proud. Our first feeling is that we will all be together. Giannis’ (s.a. Antetokounmpo) season in the NBA is over, but we have other very high quality players still competing. We have time ahead of us, above all, let there be health. The meeting with Giannis Antetokounmpo took place about two months ago, we have not spoken with him yet after the Bucks were eliminated, but we believe he will be with us. Initially, there is a feeling that everyone will be with us and that is the most important thing”.
