Handball – U18 World Cup: Senegal loses to Algeria in the President’s Cup!

Senegal lost their first game in the President’s Cup. The competition which brings together the teams eliminated following the group stage of the U18 World Cup which is currently taking place in North Macedonia.

Senegal made history by reporting their first victory at this level, against Uzbekistan, which helped them finish third in Group B. In turn, Algeria lost all three games in Group A and hoped to put an end to this bad luck in the President’s Cup. The decor was thus set for this 100% African poster.

It is finally a first victory for Algeria at the IHF Women’s Handball World Championships. Neither Nguenar Cissé’s 13 saves nor the 14 goals scored by Sira Kebe (eight goals) and Theresimia Gomis (six goals) combined, nor the fact that they took their efficiency above 50% ultimately helped the Senegal. Algeria was too strong. It is also thanks to the 17 saves of Oumenia Meriem Salah and scorers like Ines Aissa (seven goals), Douae Sahraoui (six goals) and Alia Choudani and Lyna Yelles (five goals each).

As a result, both teams now have two points on the scoreboard. Senegal is still second in the standings thanks to its best goal ratio (-8) explains the official website of the competition.

Winners on Wednesday, Montenegro top Group I of the President’s Cup with four points, while Uzbekistan, whom they beat today, have zero points. Two African teams, Algeria and Senegal, are tied on two points in the same group. On Friday, Montenegro will face Senegal, while Uzbekistan are set to meet Algeria.
