Egypt used to have an OK team, I wonder why they gave up trying in this sport.

 

@thepharoah is there any specific reason for that ?

 

that's so weird situation , we have good youth and junior teams but we don't have 1st team despite the fact that there're many teams care about this sport and even they bring foreign players to the league , it's like our women's handball team we have youth and junior teams but don't have a 1st team you'll never see something like that anywhere in the world except Egypt

Thank you @Vektor

 

That was a good win from us and great performance by our young goalkeeper Zerdevas. We were down 2-5 and I thought it would get ugly but luckily our team fought back. We have a lot of good players who play for top European clubs (including Olympiacos who won the Champions League for 2017-18 and second place 2019-20) but for some reason our national team always underachieves. Perhaps this is the year that we finally break through and win our first Olympic medal.

 

I doubt it though. I say that every time and we always have the inevitable choke in the quarterfinals so who knows, but definitely a good start for our boys.

What an embarrassing choke from Greece. We led Italy 6-2 after the third period and the match ended in a draw 6-6.

 

Obviously still a good result but never should've drawn from that position...

Every :RSA match is so completely pointless for both teams involved. I really hope :RSA reevaluates their stance on the African quota OR they start actually improving their teams, because this is depressing to watch at an Olympic Games.
