Egypt’s Handball Team Reach Semi-Finals After Beating Norway

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.

This is the sixth straight victory at the competition after they already beat Serbia 30-29 in the quarters, Australia 44-17, Nigeria 47-30, Sweden 32-22, and South Korea 38-36 in the group stage.

This makes Egypt the first non-European team to have won all first stage matches since 2009.

Egypt managed to reach the semi-finals five times before, winning the title in 1993 and the bronze medal in 1999.

The Egyptian Handball national team includes Abdelrahman Taha, Abdelrahman Hameed, Galal Khorshid, Abdelaziz Ehab, Shehab Abdallah, Hassan Walid, Seif El Deraa, Ahmed Hesham, Ahmed Rady, Hazem Mamdouh, Mohsen Ramadan, Mohamed El Azhary, Omar Khaled, Omar Samy, Khaled Waleed and Yasser Mohamed.
