Egypt’s men’s national handball team has made it to the round of 16 knockout stage at the 2017 Handball World Championship in France after defeating Argentina.

The Pharaohs, who are hoping to make it all the way to the finals, performed strongly against Argentina in Wednesday, defeating the South Americans 31-26.

The game marked the fourth round of the group stage and comes after Egypt defeated Qatar and Bahrain. The Egyptians, who currently have six points, lost against Denmark on Saturday.

The Pharaohs, currently third in Group D, have one final Group stage game against Sweden before moving on to the round of 16. A total of four teams from each group proceed to the round of 16.

Egypt last reached the round of 16 two years ago. The country has not made it beyond the round of 16 since finishing in fourth place in 2001.
