It's full steam ahead to Manila for the Tall Blacks, despite some disappointing results clouding their Olympic qualifying build-up.

They failed to win a game in Europe, bested by Iran, Latvia and world number three Lithuania.

Coach Paul Henare says their first qualifying game against the Philippines next week is occupying all their attention.

He says it's the only game that matters in their lives.

The Tall Blacks will need to win through four games at the tournament to win an Olympics berth.
