Goal for Chile, 5-3 by Esteban Salinas
After a good two minutes at the beginning, CHile made too many mistakes here and made it too easy for the already favored Egyptians. Mateo Garralda is accordingly dissatisfied and asks his team to do the first Time out.
Goal for Egypt, 5-2 by Mohamed Mamdouh
The South Americans are also unfocused up front and Mamdouh successfully speculates on winning the ball. The Egyptians don’t let anything burn in the far hall.
Goal for Egypt, 4-2 by Mohamed Sanad
Chile is not defending closely enough and leaving huge gaps. This time Sanad is free on the left wing, flies in and hammers the resinous ball into the left gable.
Goal for Egypt, 3-2 by Yehia El-Deraa
Goal for Chile, 2-2 by Esteban Salinas
Goal for Egypt, 2-1 by Yahia Omar
The Egyptians break the defense with a pass and then Omar is through alone. Of course, the professional from Veszprém doesn’t have to be asked twice.

Incidentally, there is also German participation on this first day. Robert Schulze and Tobias Tönnies are assigned as referees for the opening game.
Slowly but surely the tension in the Cairo Stadium Indoor Halls Complex is rising! The opening speeches by IHF President Dr. Hassan Moustafa Egypt’s President Abd al-Fattah as-Sisi has faded away and in a few minutes the playing field belongs to the players. Egypt and Chile open the handball world championship 2021!
The Chileans were also regulars at the last World Cup. The South Americans have not missed a tournament since 2011. In the sixth attempt, it should finally work this time with the first entry into the main round. To make this happen, the team has been working with Spanish coach Mateo Garralda for a number of years, who led Chile to 16th place in 2019. The team is led by backcourt ace Rodrigo Salinas and the experienced Feuchtmann brothers Harald, Erwin and Emil, who may be known to one or the other handball fan from their time in Germany.
It is the 15th World Cup participation in a row for the host Egyptians. The reigning African champion has been at every world tournament since 1993. In 2019 they took a respectable eighth place. Under the Spanish coach Roberto Garcia Parrondo, who led Vardar Skopje to the Champions League title in 2019, the Pharaohs now want to move forward even further at home. Since North Macedonia and especially Sweden are still waiting strong opponents, a win against Chile is almost a must today. To do this, the North Africans rely primarily on Africa Cup MVP Yehia El-Deraa and Veszprém shooter Yahia Omar.
The German team is in Group A against Hungary and the two newcomers to the World Cup, Uruguay and the Cape Verde Islands. The preliminary round should be easy for Alfreð Gíslason’s team without the regular defense block around Wiencek, Pekeler and Lemke. If the team can build on the performances in the European Championship qualifying games against Austria and continue playing in the first week of the tournament, the chances of reaching the quarter-finals are good. The top favorites for the title remain defending champion Denmark, vice world champion Norway, European champion Spain and subscription champion France.
The subject of Corona is of course omnipresent in world handball. Only one day before the tournament started, two countries, the Czech Republic and the USA, had to withdraw their participation due to too many Covis19 cases in the team. But North Macedonia and Switzerland have moved up, which among other things means that Rhein-Neckar Löwe Any Schmid is still allowed to play his first World Cup at the age of 37. Other stars are meanwhile voluntarily giving up the tournament due to the pandemic. In the German team, Patrick Wiencek, Hendrik Pekeler, Finn Lemke and Steffen Weinhold canceled their participation. Other stars like Sweden’s Lukas Nilsson did not come either.
The upcoming World Cup is special in many ways. For the first time, instead of the previous 24, 32 teams will take part in the final round. This means that nations like Uruguay, Congo or the Cape Verde Islands can also make their debut on the big stage. In addition, it is of course the first World Cup that will be held without spectators due to the corona pandemic.
Hello and welcome to the Handball World Cup 2021! In the next three weeks Egypt will be about the most prestigious title in the handball world. The hosts will kick off today at 6 p.m. in a duel with Chile.
