The excitement continues to build as we approach the World Cup semifinal clash between Serbia and Canada set to take place on September 8, 2023. These two formidable teams have embarked on distinct journeys to reach this pivotal moment and the basketball world eagerly awaits the outcome of this monumental showdown.

Serbia Review

Serbia’s journey in the World Cup has been marked by its resilience and tenacity, as the team has navigated through both highs and lows. A favorable draw in the group stage allowed Serbia to enter each game as the clear favorite, but even that couldn’t shield them from a surprising defeat at the hands of Italy, with a final score of 76-78. This loss highlighted the absence of Nikola Jokic, a superstar center, as Nikola Milutinov and Nikola Jovic struggled to fill his shoes.

Despite the setback, Serbia showcased their mettle in the playoffs, securing a convincing victory over Lithuania, with a final score of 87-68. Their exceptional two-point shooting, with a remarkable 63% success rate (24 out of 38 attempts), played a pivotal role in this triumph. Bogdan Bogdanovic emerged as a key figure, contributing a remarkable 21 points in the aforementioned game, making a strong case for MVP honors.

Canada Review

Canada’s path to the semifinals has been marked by its resilience and skillful play. While they faced a momentary setback with a 65-69 loss to Brazil, it was merely a blip on their radar. Prior to that, the North Americans convincingly defeated Slovenia with a score of 100-89 and edged past Spain with an 88-85 victory. Shay Gilgeous-Alexander’s consistent excellence, reaching the 30-point mark for the second consecutive game, has been a standout feature of their campaign.

What sets Canada apart is their cohesive team play. Under the guidance of coach Jordi Fernandez, they have displayed remarkable interplay on the court, making them a force to be reckoned with in the tournament. With their eyes set on their first-ever World Cup trophy, Canada enters the semifinals with a genuine chance of achieving history.
