Twelve teams from around the world will contest the repechage and Bassul believes his players will have to dig deep to progress to the showpiece in China.

"We are improving and will continue a serious work in a bid to claim one of the five Olympic spots," he said.

Guard Claudinha added: "Now we should prepare ourselves very well for the qualifier, both technically and physically, as we’ll play more powerful sides.

"The most important lesson we have to learn is that the road to success is team play. When we achieve it, we win with a good performance."
