Tokyo 2020: Egypt write one of the happiest pages in their Handball history
Egypt write today one of the happiest pages in their Handball history as they go through to the Olympic Games semi-finals for the first time!
It is a high intensity game that took place this Tuesday, August 3, 2021 at Yoyogi National Stadium in Tokyo. During 60 minutes of play, the Pharaohs remained solid, compact and unbreakable by keeping their German opponents at a comfortable gap.
Egypt were 78% effective, with Yahia Omar and Ali Zein as their highest scorers with five contributions each. 33-year-old goalkeeper Karim Hendawy had an incredible night — he made 18 saves at an average of 41%.
The Pharaohs will meet France, the silver medalists at Rio 2016, in the semi-finals on Thursday. Good luck to our Champions!
