VOLLEYBALL: Egypt win African Nations Championship over Tunisia

Egypt Volleyball - African Nations Championship

The Egyptian national team have won the 2015 men’s African Nations Championship after an impressive 3-0 win against Tunisia.

The Pharaohs have won their eighth African Nations Championship (CAVB) after beating rivals Tunisia on Thursday, tying the Carthage Eagles’ record for most titles in the process.

The Egyptian National Team crushed Tunisia in 78 minutes with three sets in a row ( 26-24, 25-18, 25-21) at Cairo Stadium complex.

The win marked Egypt’s sixth title in a row since 2005.  Prior to 2005, Egypt has not won the tournament since 1983.

The Pharaohs took home four individual awards:

Best server: Abdelhalim Abou

Best receiver: Mohamed Abdel Moneim

Best blocker: Mohamed Adel

Most valuable player: Ahmed Salah

Egypt is the top ranked CAVB team, followed by Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco.

Come September, The Pharaohs may have a chance to play the Carthage Eagles again after both teams qualified for the 2015 FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Cup in Japan.
