The Philippines’ Gilas Pilipinas is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the team Qatar at 12:00 A.M. on February 22, 2019 live from the Al-Gharaffa Stadium Sports Club Mutli-Purpose Hall, Qatar.
After failing to make a win in the fifth window of the tournament, Gilas Pilipinas is now in a must-win situation to give more sunshine to their bid for the 2019 FIBA World Cup.
In their game against team Kazakhstan, coach Yeng Guiao assembled a much taller line-up and was dubbed as the best All-Filipino national team.
Yet, the team that they easily beaten in the 2018 Asian Games seems like done a great job in scouting as they outrun Gilas bigs as well as they fielded the match with their stretch big-men.
Three days later, the national squad faced-off the Hamed Haddadi-less Iran squad.
However, despite they don’t have their best player in the lineup, Gilas once again got defeated in front of their home-crowd.
Speaking of home-crowd, the OFWs who are based in Doha are expected to be in the Al-Gharaffa Stadium Sports Club Mutli-Purpose Hall this evening chanting for Gilas.
When Philippine team and the Qatari squad last played in the Smart Araneta Coliseum it was like a scrimmage as the game was a closed-door.
That was part of the suspension slapped by FIBA to team Philippines.
