The Philippines’ Gilas Pilipinas is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Team Iran at 8:00 P.M. on September 8, 2019 live from the Wukesong Arena, Beijing, China.
This will be the last chance for Gilas Pilipinas to win at least one in the 2019 FIBA World Cup yet the Iranians are expected that they won’t give it easily when the tournament resumes this evening in Beijing China.
Though they were beaten mightily against team Serbia in its second game in China yet they have played much better compared to their opener match against team Italy.
Then they almost logged their first victory against team Angola which would reward them an outright inclusion to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
However, against team Tunisia, it appears that they went in a full circle and once again got destroyed heavily in the basketball world stage.
Still, the window of opportunity still not closed to our beloved basketball national team and tonight they’ll be facing its familiar foe in Asia and that’s the team Iran.
Unlike in the Asian Qualifiers, Gilas played without Andray Blatche versus the mighty Hamed Haddadi-led Iranian squad and got beaten twice.
