The Red Eagles of Tunisia came 25th at the 27th IHF Men’s World Championship after beating Austria 37:33 to win the President’s Cup for the first time.
The North African side showed great efficiency as they defeated a rather inconsistent Austrian side the New City Stadium.
The Africans led from the beginning of the game, leading with as much as six points to the chagrin of the Europeans.
By the end of first half, Tunisia took the tie 19:16.
Austria, no matter how much they did, the match kept slipping away from them even when it was just a point deficit.
Tunisia did proper defending to curtail the threats of Austria and go ahead to take victory.
IHF.com reports that Tunisia are the second African team to win the President’s Cup after Algeria won it at Spain 2013, while Austria finish the tournament with three wins and four losses to end on the 26th place.
