Egypt's team reached the semi final of the 2019 FIVB Volleyball Boys' U19 World Championship for the second time ever after beating Belarus 3-0 in the quarter final on Wednesday.

The Young Pharaohs were too strong for the Belarusian side, winning the match's three sets 25-21, 25-18 and 25-18.

The Egyptian team will be facing Italy in the semi final on Thursday.

Winning the fourth place in the 2011's edition of the U19 World Championship was the best-ever achievement by the Egyptian team.
