Tunisia overcome Morocco in Men's World Champs Qualifier


Tunisia team won the first match in Zone 1 qualifier for 2014 Men's World Championship

Tunis, Tunisia, November 21, 2013 – In a tie break match, host Tunisia secured their first win of the Zone 1 (Pool M) African qualifier for 2014 FIVB Men's World Championship on Wednesday, by defeating Morocco 3-2 (21-25, 25-14, 25-16, 20-25, 15-8).

The Tunisia men fought hard for more than two hours to overcome the struggling Moroccan team at Rades hall in Tunis, Tunisia.

Tunisia repeated their victory over Morocco in the same pattern they had during the 2013 African Nations Championship last September.

Tunisia already secured a berth to the final round beside the zone champions between Morocco and Algeria.
