France will clash against Great Britain and Germany on November 27 and 29, and coach Vincent Collet has decided on the 13 players he will count on for the occasion, as well as the six players who should be ready in case a spot opens up.

The list includes quite a few names from the Basketball Champions League and 7DAYS EuroCup but it also lacks any coming from the NBA as well as the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague.

The primary list of 13 players the coach will count is the following: Andrew Albicy, Axel Julien, David Michineau, Isaiah Cordininer, Axel Bouteille, Lahaou Konate, Nicolas Lang, Axel Toupane, Amath M’Baye, Alexandre Chassang, Mathias Lessort, Jerry Boutsiele, Mouhammadou Jaiteh.

Meanwhile, a list of additional six players has been made who will serve as a replacement in case some of the above can’t show up. It includes: Jonathan Rousselle, Hugo Invernizzi, Yakuba Ouattara, Damien Inglis, Yannis Morin, Abdoulaye N’doye.
