Tunisia are African Champions!
Fourteen years after their last victory, Tunisia were crowned Champions of Africa beating the hosts, Egypt, by 3 sets to nil.Their victory, in Cairo, was played in front of thousands of home supporters, and followed the almost total domination of six-times African champions, Egypt.
The aggressive and decisive play of Antonio Giacobbe’s Tunisian players gave them a convincing victory over their opponents who committed too many errors both in receiving and in defending. This historic win for Tunisia means that, with a ninth championship title, they become the most successful team in Africa Cup volleyball, overtaking Egypt that have won it eight times.
Consequently Tunisia, along with Egypt and Cameroon will be representing Africa in the 2018 World Volleyball Championships.
