Dennis Schroder spoke about Germany’s potential in this summer’s FIBA World Cup in China, while he was clear that the team has to start off the competition on the right foot against challenging France.

“A good group. I think we can really accomplish a lot with the group,” Schroder told a German Basketball Federation press conference when asked of the draw with France, Dominican Republic and Jordan, as adapted by “The first game against France will be the top game in the group and we really have to go out there and win that game.”

“We have so much potential. We have never had so many NBA players. There was a lot of potential with Dirk Nowitzki and those great players. But right now with the young players we have, it’s exciting for sure. I am looking forward to the future,” Schroder added. “I cannot promise anything like I always say, but my personal goal is to win a medal in the coming years”.
