The Desert Foxes of Algeria maintained their dominance over Morocco in senior handball with a win in the first match for the two sides in the IHF World Men’s Championship in Egypt.
The warriors however didn’t breeze pass the Lions as many expected as Morocco showed they were in the tournament to be counted in a point-advantage game that ended 24-23.
At half time, it was Morocco looking good to cause an upset for the first time after a six consecutive losing streak against their north African rivals with a seven-point lead.
The Atlas Lions continued their fine play to maintain their lead in the second half, but 50 seconds to the game Algeria changed the story.
After they had closed the score margin to just a point, the 2020 African Championship bronze medalist equal scores with some seconds left to make it 23-23.
10 seconds to the end of the game, the Foxes were celebrating as they scored to end the game at 24-23 points.
