The group phase of the CAVB African Nations Championship being held in Cairo, Egypt, drew to a close with a match between Gambia and Senegal. With the conclusion of the group stage, the matchups for the round of 16 have been decided. Given that there are 15 teams participating in the tournament, Libya, leading Pool D, progresses directly to the quarterfinals due to Pool A having only three teams.
