Germany, participating in its first-ever final, became the seventh country to win the FIBA World Cup. The previous winners include the United States (five times), Yugoslavia (five times), the Soviet Union (three times), Brazil (twice), Spain (twice), and Argentina (once). On the other hand, Serbia, which was part of the former Yugoslavia, failed to secure its first title in its second appearance in the finals. They had previously lost to the Americans in 2014.

Franz Wagner contributed 19 points and 7 rebounds, while Johannes Voigtmann scored 12 points and grabbed 8 rebounds.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz praised the team’s “historic and well-deserved” victory, expressing his congratulations. President Frank-Walter Steinmeier also celebrated Germany’s “historic victory” and commended the team’s remarkable performance.

Unbeaten Champions

Germany secured their first world title by remaining undefeated throughout the tournament, which was jointly hosted by the Philippines, Japan, and Indonesia. They emerged victorious against the United States, the perennial favorite to win the championship.
