Marco Crespi makes his first match today as the national team captain for the Swedish basketball ladies.

Israel waits in Tel Aviv tonight when the European Championship qualifier starts and SVT broadcasts.

- We left that good impression in Europe and the world this summer and it feels like everyone is tagged to get started. We should win all the matches. With the team we have and the players coming in now. Everyone has gained more experience, says star Amanda Zahui to SVT Sport.

She has got a good impression of the new federal captain.

- Very nice. It feels like he wants more than just winning matches. He wants to develop players.

Already on Sunday, Sweden faces Montenegro at home.

- It will be very exciting. I have never played against Israel, so it will be a whole new match picture. Montenegro we played against in the European Championships and they will be really tagged as we beat them there.

The match will be broadcast in SVT Play starting 17.55.
