Afrobasket: Edy Tavares misses national team in Algeria matches

Praia, Jan 10 (Inforpress) – Real Madrid’s Cabo Verdean international basketball player Edy Walter Tavares misses the Cabo Verde national team that prepares for the preliminary rounds with Algeria for the Afrobasket 2021 group stage.

The coaching staff of Emanuel “Mané” Trovoada (head) and Danielson Miranda regret that FIBA-Africa has postponed the game to a date, 15th and 16th, which does not allow the giant basketball player, 2.21 meters, and one of the Cabo Verdean sport references and reinforce the Cabo Verdean collective, by commitment to the Madrid club.

This is because on this date, Edy Tavares will be competing in the Euroleague, one of the biggest club events in the world, for the Real Madrid club, since the fact that the preliminaries are not played on a FIBA ​​date does not compel the clubs to release the players.

Cabo Verdean basketball coaching staff are not happy with this change in the FIBA-Africa calendar, but said they are convinced that Cabo Verde will work to eliminate Algeria in the preliminary rounds scheduled for 15th and 16th so they can count on Tavares in the group stage games.
