Sherif El-Erian spoke to “On Time Sports 1”, saying: “The handball team played a more than wonderful match today. Germany was the one who was afraid of us, not the other way around. We were the strongest and the best.”
“We want to win the first medal in the history of Egypt in the team games at the Olympics,” he added.
And about Katungas signal, he said: “In the last 3 or 5 minutes, Katunga saved a shot from the German player and indicated to him with his hand that he would not score against his goal.”
“Immediately, Barondo called him and warned him not to repeat this behavior, otherwise he would be removed from the stadium, and Katunga apologized directly.”
Egypt defeated Germany 31-26 in the quarter-finals of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
The semi-final match will be held next Thursday at 10 am.
It is noteworthy that the Egyptian team is the first Arab and African team to qualify for the semi-finals of the Olympics in handball throughout history.
It is also the first non-European team since South Korea in the Seoul Games in 1988.
