Less than 24 hours before the opening match of Australia in the Basketball World Cup, Jock Landale talked about the team’s target.

Here is what the big man of Zalgiris Kaunas said, per Donatas Urbonas:

On Australia’s expectations: “We expect just to bring home a medal. We understand there’s a lot of pressure on us. But I think everybody agrees we have a team to do that. I hope we’ll be able to play in that gold medal game. That’s the plan.”

On the team’s chemistry: “We bring this togetherness to our program & it starts with the vets Patty, Joe, & Bogut. They gave us a blueprint. I’m a rookie in this team, but there’s no way I feel like a rookie at all. These guys welcome you to the family straight away.”

Australia will face Canada on Sunday (01/09).

If you’re heading to China for the World Cup, don’t forget that China blocks all the most popular websites and social media, so no Facebook for you. Unless you grab a VPN that is.

With a VPN service you can access the content you’re used to like Google, Instagram and so on. Even if you’re not there physically, you’ll probably want to stream FIBA World CUP 2019 matches.

A VPN helps to do so securely, not to mention you’d be able to do so from any country, with no geographical restrictions to streaming content.
