Egypt qualify Handball

Egypt’s national handball team advanced from the group stage of the men’s Junior World Championships in second place after their latest win against on Norway on Sunday.

The Pharaohs qualified to the round of 16 after finishing in second place of Group D with 7 points, after three wins against Uruguay (37-20), hosts Brazil (32-31) and Norway (31-21), plus a draw against Japan (27-27). 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.

Hashem is a promising 20-year-old left winger playing for Aviation Club in Egypt and has scored 19 goals in six international appearances.
