Egypt fall against Denmark in Handball World Championship
The Egyptian National team have suffered their second defeat in the World’s Men Handball Championship’s main round after losing to Denmark 26-19.
Egypt had qualified for the main round after finishing third in Group D of the tournament after Sweden and Hungary. They were initially drawn Qatar, Argentina, and Angola, in addition to the aforementioned two nations.
David Davis’ men started the game in the right way to take a 3-1 lead after the first seven minutes, but the Vikings quickly leveled the result and made it 3-3 into the ninth minute of the first half.
Denmark then took the lead and managed to withstand it for the remainder of the half despite Egypt’s attempt to finish the half on par. Denmark managed to end the first half with 9-7 lead.
Egypt succeeded to go head to head and maintain the two-goal deficit until the 10th minute of the second half. However, the world championship hosts slowly managed to extend their lead to reach six-goal difference by the end of the game and finish with 26-20 victory.
The Pharaohs will next face Tunisia in the final game of the main round on Thursday, but are highly unlikely to be among the final four to play for the title.
