Nigeria’s under-18 Women’s Handball Team on Saturday in Monastir, Tunisia, defeated their Angola counterparts 28-24 in the third-place match of the ongoing Africa Women’s Youth Handball Championship.
Nigeria bounced back from their semi-final game loss to Egypt by 18-32 on Friday.
Speaking later, Nigeria’s coach, Shittu Agboola, said his team played well.
“We wanted to play the final instead of the third place. Unfortunately, we lost the semi-final against Egypt yesterday.
“The most important thing which was a success to us is that we have qualified for the 2024 IHF Women’s Youth World Championship,” he said.
Recall that in the final match, defending champion, Egypt retained their title as they comfortably hammered their counterparts, Guinea 29-16 to be crowned champion of the 2023 Africa Women’s YHC.
