Egypt finished fourth in the handball Junior World Championship in Greece after being defeated from rivals Tunisia 18-24 on Saturday.

The Tunisian team dominated since the start whistle and the young Pharaohs couldn’t draw once although coach, Abdo Abdel-Wahab made many substitutes and changes in his tactics.

Best shooter of this match was Mosba Sanai, who scored eight times for Tunisia.

“That’s a great novelty in handball. It’s the first time in the history of the IHF that two non-European teams reached the semi-final,” says Hassan Moustafa, the International Handball Federation's Egyptian president.

The final between Denmark and Germany ended with a 27-18 well-deserved victory to the defending-title Germany who had a really tough defense.

“The Tournament was so much better than we even dared to hope for,” Moustafa said.
