Japan have already confirmed their place at the 2023 FIBA World Cup as one of the three host nations, but that doesn’t mean they won’t want to finish the qualification phase in good nick to build up some momentum for August’s global showpiece.

After 10 games in a competitive Group F of the second round, Tom Hovasse’s side have sealed five wins, including three on the trot against Kazakhstan (twice) and Bahrain. When August rolls around, it will be Japan’s sixth World Cup appearance, though they have never made it beyond the first round.

Hovasse will be hoping to shift the narrative and give the home fans something to cheer about. But, before preparations can get seriously underway in the summer, he must first tackle an Iran side looking to book a place at the event themselves. Having never qualified before 2010, Iran have made the last three World Cups.

As things currently stand, Saeed Armaghani’s side are third in Group F, just below already-qualified Australia and China, and a place above Japan. Only Kazakhstan offer a threat to their position, with Bahrain already eliminated, but they will not want to focus on results elsewhere. Their fate is in their own hands.
