This was Egypt’s second victory after beating Tunisia in straight sets (25-13, 25-16, 25-16) in 64 minutes on the opening day.

The Egyptians improved their win-loss ratio to 2-0 so they are now sure to qualify for the World Championship event even if they lose their last match against Algeria on Wednesday at the Army Club Hall in Cairo.

Tunisia recovered from their first day defeat against Egypt to flow past Algeria 3-1 (25-16, 25-16, 14-25, 25-14) in 85 minutes. Tunisia improved to 1-1, while Algeria dropped to the same ratio.

The third and last day of the African Championship will see Egypt play Algeria, which the latter must win to secure one of the three tickets to the Girls’ U18 World Championship to be held from 26 July to 4 August in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.

Tunisia and Rwanda will also play each other to determine who wins the ticket to Thailand.
