Alexander Vezenkov will return to the Bulgarian national team this summer. The Olympiacos player will take part in the last two matches of the first stage of the qualifications for the 2023 World Cup. He will be part of our team for Eurobasket 2022. The return of the wing became a fact after a meeting between him, selectors of Rosen Barchovski and President of the Bulgarian Basketball Federation Georgi Glushkov.
“See you in Athens, he will be part of the team in the qualifications for the World Cup in July, the preparations in Samokov and the preparations for the European Championship, which is in Tbilisi in September. I am very happy, I think he is happy too, “Barchovski was quoted as saying by BNT.
In this way, the 206-centimeter basketball player will put on the Lions’ team after a break of nearly four years. For the last 26-year-old Vezenkov played for the “tricot” in September 2018 in the qualifiers for the World Cup in China.
Rosen Barchovski’s team will gather at the camp in Samokov on June 18, and a few days later will warm up with a prestigious control. The inspection will take place on June 26th against Serbia’s representative team. It is still unclear where it will be played. On July 1, the Lions will host Lithuania, and three days later they will visit Bosnia and Herzegovina in the world qualifiers.
