The Women’s Selection faces a new challenge after claiming the first win of the preparation tour against Nigeria (61-52). Will be Belgium the next rival of a team that not only won yesterday, but also gained sensations and shooting ahead of what lies ahead in the coming weeks with the arrival of EuroBasket. This Saturday at 20:00, Spain will face the Belgian team at the Vista Alegre Palace in Córdoba. A clash that can be seen live through Teledeporte.

Spain will play a confrontation that is complicated when it is played against one of the teams that intends to assault the podium in the European event. The Belgians have remained at the gates of the medals in the last championships by finishing fourth in the Tenerife World Cup 2018 and fifth in the EuroBasket 2019.

Belgium’s style of play will force Spain to adapt once again and it is a very different philosophy from Nigeria, which offered a much more physical and aggressive match. In the case of the team led by Philip Mestdagh, it is a team that likes to run and will open the field thanks to its good shooters. The rest of your game will go through your main reference, Emma messeman.

The National Team will maintain its idea of ??growing and trying different game situations with the intention of continuing to polish the team in the best possible way. In the clash against Nigeria, Spain was seen that enjoyed the game in transition and applied itself in defense against a very intense rival. Two aspects that will continue to be worked on in the confrontation against Belgium, as they are the hallmarks of the national team.

After this match against Belgium, the team will continue their preparation in Valencia with several training sessions and a new triangle that will begin on Thursday June 10 with a Spain-Turkey (8:30 p.m.) and that will end on Saturday the 12th with a Spain-Italy (8:30 p.m.).
