CAN’2024/Handball: Cabo Verde beats Morocco (31-22) to reach the semi-finals and secure a place at the World Championship

Praia City, 23 Jan (Inforpress) – The Cape Verdean senior men’s handball team beat their Moroccan counterpart 31-22 today and is now in the semi-finals of the 26th African Nations Championship taking place in Egypt.

This triumph, in a quarter-final match, qualified Cabo Verde directly for the World Cup, to be played next year in Croatia, Denmark and Norway.

It should be noted that the four semi-finalists in the African Cup automatically qualify for the World Cup.

The game that led to this double feat was marked by balance, with Cabo Verde ending the first half leading 13-10, but they were almost always at a disadvantage in the first 30 minutes.
