The Spanish women's basketball coach, Miguel Méndez, offered this Tuesday the list of 14 players called to play the second qualifying 'window' for the Eurobasket in Slovenia and Israel 2023, two games in which they will face Iceland and Hungary.

Spain will play both matches at the Palacio de los Deportes Carolina Marín in Huelva, the first against Iceland on Thursday, November 24 (8:30 p.m.) and the second against Hungary on Sunday, November 27 (5:00 p.m.).
Méndez highlighted the importance of the two matches, "especially the second against the Hungarian team." "There we hope to close the qualification for the 2023 European Championship," he said, before sending a message to the fans. "I encourage you to participate with us in this new adventure in which we seek to be protagonists in the next Eurbasket," he said.
Spain won the two games of the first 'window' against Hungary and Romania, so another two victories would ensure a passport for Eurobasket 2023. The third 'window' will be played in February with games against Romania and Iceland, both as visitors . The first teams of the ten groups and the four best seconds are classified.
