Egypt has been knocked out of the 2017 Handball World Championships in France after being defeated by Croatia in a tightly contested match.

The Pharaohs succumbed to the Croatians 21-19 in the round of 16 on Sunday night.

While Egypt started the game poorly, with the first half ending 13-7 in Croatia’s favour, an impressive display in the second half managed to reduce the goal difference to just two goals in less than eight minutes.

However, Croatia remained strong throughout the second half and managed to deflect an Egyptian effort to turn the game around.

Egypt had qualified for the round of 16 after defeating Qatar, Bahrain, and Argentina in the group stage.

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.
