Egypt’s national handball team has qualified for the Men’s Junior U21 World Championship semi-finals to be held in Spain on Thursday, after a 29-27 victory over Norway.
The Egyptian team will face its French counterpart on Saturday in the semi-finals, and the winner will face either Croatia or Portugal in the final.
