Handball World Cup in Egypt - Swiss say goodbye with a victory from Giza - Sport


  • Switzerland wins the final World Cup main round match against Algeria with 27:24 (15:13).
  • For the handball national team it is the third success in the title fights in Egypt after the victories against Austria and Iceland.
  • Even before the game against the North Africans, Michael Suter’s team had no chance of participating in the quarter-finals.

Michael Suter’s team knew: If they win against Algeria, they will finish the World Cup in the first half of the ranking with 32 participants.

And the Swiss never left any doubt that they would achieve this goal. After a 2-goal lead at the break, the Swiss increased their cushion to 6 goals by the 40th minute.

 The  other teams in the round of 8 are:

  • Group 1: Hungary, Spain
  • Group 2: Denmark, Argentina
  • Group 4: Sweden, Egypt

Because they couldn’t hit another goal for 8 minutes after that, the North Africans came up to 3 goals again. Ultimately, however, the victory was never really in danger.

The Swiss handball players travel home with another victory in their luggage.
