Gilas Pilipinas titiyaking ipanalo ang  huling ‘must-win’ game laban sa Angola sa Group D ng FIBA World Cup mamaya na gaganapin sa Foshan International Sports and Cultural Center sa China.

Ayon kay Gilas center Jun Mar Fajardo at rookie guard CJ Perez, dapat nilang maipanalo ang laro sa Angola nang sa gayon ay tumaas sila sa world ranking at nang makabawi  sa mga kababayan at sa kanilang coach.

“Siyempre, kailangan nating manalo para ‘yun nga, dadalhin natin ‘yun doon sa classification. Then may chance tayo para tumaas ‘yung world ranking natin,” said Fajardo after the Philippine team wrapped up its practice at the Foshan International Sports and Cultural Centere here.

CJ Perez, the rookie guard who has been the Philippines’ most consistent performer in the World Cup, added: “Kailangan namin ipanalo ‘yung game bukas para makabawi naman kami sa mga kababayan natin and sa kila coach.”

Sinabi naman ni coach Guiao, magiging maganda at mahigpit ang laro dahil ito ay kanilang ka-level kumpara sa naunang nakaharap ang Italy at Serbia lalo na at kapwa eliminated sila sa second round sa group round ng tournament.

“I feel Angola is a strong team, and Italy and Serbia are just in a class by themselves and not at our level. But I guess Angola and the Philippines would be a good match-up,” he said.

Sa basketball world ranking ay nasa ranked 31 ang Gilas Pilipinas habang nasa ranked 39 naman ang Angola.
