Egypt's national handball team qualified for the quarter-finals of the African Cup of Nations in Tunisia, which is qualifying for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Egypt defeated the Democratic Republic of Congo with a score of 28-19 at the end of the group stage matches, to enable the Pharaohs to get the full mark.

The holder of the current edition of the African Cup Nations will qualify directly to the Tokyo Olympics, while the second-place player will play the international play-offs.

Egypt and the Democratic Republic of the Congo qualify for the quarter-finals, together with the teams of Angola and Gabon, from Group Two.

The Pharaohs qualified with two points from a victory over the Democratic Republic of the Congo and equally with Angola, a winner over Gabon.

Egypt will play on Monday, at 1 pm against Gabon, to finish the quarter-final matches against Angola at five in the evening Wednesday.

The first and second places in the new group qualify for the semi-final stage, which eliminates the knockout system.

The second group in the quarter-finals includes Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco and Cape Verde.
