"I want to thank the Egyptian government for all its efforts to be prepared for 2021 Handball World Cup despite the current difficult circumstances." Mostafa said on Friday.
Egypt hosts the biggest event in handball between 14 and 31 January with the participation of 32 teams for the first time in the competition's history.
