As always, the United States will be among the teams to beat at the World Cup. The Stars and Stripes are the most successful nation in competition history with 12 medals; five gold, three silver and four bronze. Of course, the USA were knocked out in a shock result against France in the quarter-finals of the last World Cup, but they’ve been ruthlessly good in the time since and head into the latest edition on a five-game winning streak which includes a 98-88 victory over world No.1 Spain, while they’re second in the rankings themselves.

With all of that said, New Zealand face a tough task on Saturday. They come into the tournament 26th in the world and will have to be at their best not only to compete in this game, but also to take the second spot in the group considering they’ve been drawn against another top 10 nation in Greece (9th). New Zealand come into the match on a run of just two wins from their last six pre-tournament matches, including an 88-81 loss to Italy earlier this week.
