The Tunisia Men’s Volleyball National Team has taken a big step towards qualifying for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.


Led by Elyes Karamosli (16 points), Tunisia beat fierce rivals and also the hosts Egypt (23 points of Ahmed Abdelhay “Salah“) in a match valid for the 3rd round of the 2020 African Men’s Olympic Qualification Tournament in Cairo: 3-0 (29-27, 25-14, 25-23).

Thus, the continental champions need to take only one set in the last round against Algeria in order to secure a berth in Tokyo. As for Egypt, their chances of going to the Olympics have vanished with the defeat today. Algeria, on the other hand, still can hope of acquiring the ticket for the Olympics but must sweep Tunisia in the last round.

Cameroon – Algeria 0-3 (16-25, 16-25, 17-25)

Egypt – Tunisia 0-3 (27-29, 14-25, 23-25)

This was expected considering the worst season Zenit had this year. From the absolute domination at the national and international level, they became average team. If Alekno comes back, Mikhaylov goes back to the opposite spot, and they find one great outside hitter they might be able to form great team again. Reply
