FIBA EuroBasket 2022 Qualifiers: Travelling squad
Head Coach Marc Steutel has today confirmed the 14-man squad that travelled to Pau, France.
The team made the journey to FIBA’s bubble ahead of this weekend’s EuroBasket 2022 qualifying double-header against France and Montenegro. The hosts, who are currently ranked sixth in the world, are up first on Friday before the team’s second group game against Montenegro on Sunday.
The roster features eight players who took part in February’s window – a narrow loss in Montenegro and a historic home win over Germany – as well as six fresh faces. Three players return to the squad and three young players feature in the senior squad for the first time.
Dan Clark, Ashley Hamilton, Myles Hesson, Ben Mockford, Luke Nelson, Teddy Okereafor, Gabe Olaseni and Conner Washington all travel having been part of Steutel’s last squad earlier in the year.
Dwayne Lautier-Ogunleye, Tarik Phillip and Akwasi Yeboah are all back in camp for the upcoming games, while Cameron Hildreth, Rex Pflueger and Kareem Queeley will all be aiming to make their debuts over the weekend.
Sacha Killenya Jones won’t feature in this window through injury, whilst Carl Wheatle and Ovie Soko are both unavailable from February’s squad.
Both games – which were originally due to take place in Newcastle – tip off at 5pm and will be available to watch live via FIBA’s YouTube channel.
