World Men’s Handball Ch’ship: Tunisia out, Egypt up the creek

Tunisia have been eliminated from the ongoing World Men’s Handball Championship after recording two consecutive defeats with no point claimed.

The Carthage Eagles were earlier beaten by Sweden (35-23) before falling to Hungary (26-21) but still have one game to play in the Main Round.

They will take on fellow Africans Egypt on Tuesday.

The Pharaohs suffered two losses as well in the Main Round, against Norway (32-28) and Denmark (26-20), and currently sit second from bottom of Group II with 1 point.

Egypt might not be able to redeem themselves with the game against Tunisia, other results from the group could affect the Egyptians.

Only the first two teams of each group of the Main Round after three rounds of matches will qualify for the semi-finals.

Germany and France are the only two teams out of 12 to have qualified for the semi-finals ahead of the Main Round final round of matches scheduled for Tuesday.

Angola, Africa’s third representative, left the competition as the 23rd team, only above Japan, 24th. Angola won one game and lost three in the group stage.

Co-hosted by Germany and Denmark, the 2019 World Men’s Handball Championship will come to an end on January 27.
