D’Tigers head coach, Alex Nwora, has invited 12 players for the next round of the FIBA Men’s World cup qualifiers to be hosted in Lagos between the 14th and 16th of September. The 12-man team expected to report to camp on September 6 will be headlined by Portland Trail Blazers’ Al-Farouq Aminu, who last featured for Nigeria in 2015 when the team played in the FIBA Afrobasket.
Storyline: World Cup
That year Nigeria won the AfroBasket title, and Aminu, who has missed international action since then due to his NBA commitments with Portland, is looking forward to a return to the green and white next month. The US-born dual citizen told KweséESPN: “The tournament is in September, and I just talked to my team-mates, we have a Whats App group chat, and I realised there was a need for me to play. “And they’re playing in Nigeria so it needed to be done.”
