Egypt have beaten Chile in the opening game of the 2021 IHF World Championship 35-29 to secure their first two points.

Egypt is currently hosting the IHF World Championship for the second time in the country’s history. The tournament consists of 32 teams for the first time and is held between January 13th and January 30th.

The Pharaohs asserted their dominance from the very start of the encounter, taking the lead from the get-go as they never trailed behind their South American counterpart.

They had at least a three point lead for the majority of the first-half which ended 18-11 in favor of the hosts. Zamalek player, Yehia El-Deraa, was by far the most influential player of the first 30 minutes, having scored all five of his shots.
