Russia and Puerto Rico are set to battle it out for the final spot at the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) Women's World Cup with the other 11 places wrapped up in the Serbia and Japan qualifying tournaments.

Serbia won three games from three at the Ranko Žeravica Sports Hall in Belgrade to top the table in Group A.

Yvonne Anderson starred for the hosts as she was the team's top scorer across their fixtures with South Korea, Australia and Brazil with 68 points.

As a result, she was presented with the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award.

Australia finished second after beating Brazil 65-52 and South Korea 79-61 but lost 78-71 to Serbia.

They had already qualified, however, as the country is the host city for the World Cup, due to take place between September 22 and October 1. 

South Korea clinched the final qualification place of the group with a crucial 76-74 win over Brazil.

China topped Group B, also played in Belgrade, with ease.

The 11-time Asia Cup champions steamrolled through Nigeria, Mali and France with 90-76, 84-64 and 103-70 triumphs, respectively.

Forward Sijing Huang was crowned MVP as she averaged 16.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 6.7 assists per game.

Canada took Group C on points difference in Osaka over hosts Japan despite an 86-79 opening-game loss.

The Canadians then rebounded with a 96-64 demolition of Bosnia and Herzegovina, led by 28 points from Bridget Carleton at the Ookini Arena Maishima.

Bosnia and Herzegovina then ensured all three teams finished on three points apiece after beating 87-82.

The trio were all guaranteed to progress before the tournament as Belarus withdrew due to several positive COVID-19 tests in their team.

In Group D, the United States had already qualified as they won gold at Tokyo 2020, but nevertheless hosted the qualifying tournament in Washington D.C.

The Olympic champions topped the final group with wins against Belgium and Puerto Rico but did not play against Russia.

The US does not consider Russia's coronavirus vaccine to meet its entry requirements, so FIBA cancelled the fixture between the two countries and awarded one point each.

Russia's game against Belgium, which they lost 66-43, was subsequently moved to San Domingo in Puerto Rico.

Belgium beat Puerto Rico 98-65 and Russia 66-43 to secure qualification, despite an 84-75 loss to the US.

Puerto Rico is set to host Russia tomorrow at the Palacio de los Deportes Virgilio Travieso Soto to decide the final place in Australia.
