Egypt reached the final of the 2017 Men’s African Volleyball Championship after beating Cameroon 3-0 at the Cairo Stadium Complex on Friday night.
The hosts, who had defeated Rwanda 3-0 in the quarter-final, won the first set by a slim margin of 26-24 before making it 2-0 with a 25-22 victory over Cameroon in the second set.
A 25-23 victory in the third set secured their spot in the final for the 13th time in history. They will now play the final against Tunisia, who earned a 3-2 victory over Algeria in the semi-final. The Desert Foxes will face Cameroon for the bronze medal.
Egypt also secured their spot in the World Championship as the top three teams automatically qualify to represent Africa in the 2018 FIVB Men’s World Championship, co-hosted by Italy and Bulgaria from 10 to 30 September 2018.
It’s worth mentioning that Egypt won the last six versions of the tournament.
