Handball-25th CAN: Morocco and Cape Verde the dream of a historic place in the final

Morocco and Cape Verde dream of a historic final of their passages in the elite as they prepare to grapple this Saturday, July 16, 2022 on the occasion of the semi-finals of the 25th CAN handball which is played in Cairo, Egypt. The two formations have never reached the stage of the final since the creation of this event.

Unforgettable moment that the one who saw Morocco or Cape Verde in the event of qualification for the final of the 25th CAN. Because it will be the first time that one of these two teams will reach this stage of the event after 24 editions. Moroccans and Cape Verdeans are therefore playing big in order to make history.

If Morocco, in the past, has already managed to appear eight times in the last four (1991, 1994, 1996, 2000, 2002, 2012, 2006 and 2018), this is not the case for its adversary who seems on a cloud after his narrow but very precious victory over Angola (24-23) in the quarter-finals. The Atlas Lions also had to pull out their guts in front of the Syli National of Guinea to open up to the final. We are logically expecting a game of fire between the big cats of the North and the Blue Sharks of West Africa who have released their claws since 2000.

The second semi-final will oppose Egypt, host country to Tunisia. A match considered the final before the letter. The two formations being baobabs of African handball in addition to Algeria. If, in view of its laudatory record, Tunisia (10 titles) seems to be the favorite of the meeting, Egypt, 7 titles and on its ground, has the high morale since supported by its public which we know very boiling and active. This is the fifth time Egypt has hosted the competition. She was able to reach the final four times (1991, 2004, 2010 and 2016) against a failed final in 1983.
