Handball / CAN-2022 (Egypt – Algeria 34-19): In the abyss!

It already sounded obvious. The national handball team fell heavily in the quarter-finals of the 2022 African Handball Championship (July 11-18). Our selection could not do anything against the Egyptian ogre (34-19) who was playing on his land. This setback sends the Greens to dispute the classification matches in the hope of grabbing the 5th significant place of presence at the 2023 World Championship.

The odds were nil. And this was confirmed from the start of the game with the Pharaohs who dictated the tempo of the meeting in front of Algerians disorganized and uninspired to disturb their opponent of the day. The score at the end of the first half was final: 20 to 8 with a handicap of 12 but already irretrievable.

From then on, it was a question of avoiding the Berezina. The foals of Raba Gherbi can in any case not make the weight in front of the vice-champions of the world. Ali Zein & cie just had to manage this advantage to act their presence in the last four. After 60 minutes of play, there was 34-19 on the display board.

Playing the World Cup would be a miracle!

With this elimination, the small Algerian ball confirms that it has only black bread to eat. The fact of remaining on borrowed time to qualify for the planetary tournaments, which will be co-organized by the Poland and the Sweden (January 11-29) is unlikely to last. At first, the dz have to get rid of DR Congowho almost created the sensation and released the tunisia (40-34 defeat after extra time), tomorrow (4:30 p.m.). Thereafter, it will be necessary to face the winner between theAngola and the Guinea.

The achievement of achieving the worst ranking at the BOX of handball is there. In 2018, El Khadra finished 6th. His worst ranking of all time. For the 2022 edition, it could end up in 7th or 8th place in the event of a setback against the Congolese which we have already faced in 2018 at the same stage.
