CAIRO - 14 June 2022: Egypt men's handball national team reached the quarter-finals of the African Championship as the leaders of Group A and they will face Group B runner-up Algeria in the semi-finals on Friday night.

"We had a good game against Morocco and we are happy to be in the quarter-finals. We put on a strong performance in the group stage and we will fight to maintain this level in the knockout stage." Yehia Khaled, who was awarded the Man of The Match award against Morocco, said after the game.
