Al Ahly have suffered another defeat and got eliminated in volleyball world championship in Brazil after losing 0-3 to Argentinian champions UPCN San Juan.

This is the second loss for Africa’s representatives in the tournament, after they surrendered to a first 0-3 defeat to Iran’s Paykan Tehran.

Al Ahly lost the first set against the Argentinian side with the score of 23-25.  UPCN San Juan extended their lead winning the second 16-25, before ending the game three sets clear by claiming the third set with the score of 21-25.

Both of the Egyptian club’s games have seen the same scenario, as they failed to claim any sets in their two matches to become the bottom of group B and have their hopes in the world championship surrendered.
