Semyon Galkevich. The national team of Russia on basketball before the world Cup raises questions to the head coach of the national team, but the answers to them will give only the tournament itself, said two-time silver medalist Evgeni Kisurin.
The world Cup will be held in China from 31 August to 15 September. The Russians in the group stage will play with teams of Argentina, Nigeria and South Korea. Due to injuries in the tournament will not accept participation defenders Alexey Shved, Dmitri Khvostov Dmitry Kulagin, center Timofey Mozgov. Defender Anton Ponkrashov previously published online Instagram an appeal to the Russian basketball Federation to call him.
“Anton Ponkrashov, I think, exaggerates its usefulness for the Russian team. I have looked in the national team Evgeny Voronov, that player I know for a long time, he always stood out for his fighting qualities, his defense. Need to be within the team to understand why they are not in the team. Why not the same Vyacheslav Zaitsev, Vladislav Trushkin? People who had a good season,” said Kisurin on the phone.
“But that’s all the questions from the side, the coach chooses who to go into battle, and therefore responsible for the result. Questions to Bazarevich is, but all the answers will have the world Cup,” he added.
