Egypt’s one loss at Brazil 2015 came against Germany (24-29), the winners of Group D.
Egypt is expected to play against South Korea from Group C as they qualified in third place with 6 points after winning three matches while losing twice.
The Egyptian national team replaced Ahmed Mustafa Khairi with Ahmed Hashem after a nasty injury against Germany.
