Spanish NT head coach Sergio Scariolo included five European champions into a 16-man roster for the upcoming FIBA World Cup Qualifiers games.

Sebastian Saiz, Jaime Fernandez, Dario Brizuela, Joel Parra, and Alberto Diaz return to the Spanish national team after winning gold in Berlin on September 18.

"I think it is a team with important values, consistency, character, and quality that can allow us to achieve the main objective in this window: to qualify for the World Cup," Scariolo said. 

Eric Vila and Pep Busquets are set to make their debut with the national team.
