Press release

Egypt and Cameroon record first win at World Championship qualifiers


The Algeria team started their World Championship campaign on Monday against Nigeria

Algiers, Algeria, February 23, 2014 – African favourites Egypt and Cameroon started their 2014 Women's World Championship qualification campaign with victories in their Pool T matches held at the Harcha Hacène Hall in Algiers on Sunday as they beat Botswana and DR Congo respectively on day 1.

The final tournament, which qualifies the winner for the FIVB Volleyball Women's World Championship Italy 2014, was supposed to feature seven national teams but due to the late arrival and consequent withdrawal of Ghana, it is now a six nation tournament.

Egypt overcame Botswana in straight sets 3-0 (25-21, 25-11, 25-17) in 81 minutes. Their better reception and powerful attacks were the key factors to their win.

The 2013 African Nations Championship silver medallists Cameroon flew past the DR Congo 3-0 (25-14, 25-9, 25-14) in 72 minutes.

The second day will feature a ground breaking encounter between Egypt and Cameroon, while hosts Algeria will meet Nigeria in their matches.
