The best players are Pachulia (hawks), Boisa, Tsintadze, Ellis. But they are without Manuchar Markoishvili and Shammond Williams.

Holland

Arvin Slagter Forward
Bryan Deferes
Francisco Elson Center
Harvey van Steijn
Kees Akerboom Forward
Marcel Aarts
Patrick Hilliman
Peter van Paassen Center
Remon van de Hare
Robert Krabbedam
Rogier Jansen Guard
Sam Jones
Stefan Wessels Forward
Thijs Vermeulen Guard/Forward
Ties Theeuwkens Guard

A lot of players had injury troubles, but most of them are fit. Only Sam Jones and Remon van de Hare still struggles with injuries.. The best players are Francisco Elson (Bucks), Kees Akerboom, Van Paassen, Sam Jones and Stefan Wessels. The well-known is also Van de Hare, but I don´t think he´s a good player. Holland could be an underdog.


Iceland

I haven´ official roster, but only Birmingham will miss the qualification (retired), Jon Stefansson is with the team. Iceland has solid young players. At home, they´ ll be strong.

Ireland

Really poor team, most of the good players retired from the national team (burke, Callahan etc..) ...The main offensive weapon are McGrath and Larranaga...
