(TAP) – Tunisia's handball team defeated Cameroon's 41-21 (halftime: 22-11), at an African Nations Handball Championship day-3 match (Men, Group C), played on Sunday evening evening in Rades.

Earlier in the afternoon, Cape Verde secured a win over Côte d'Ivoire 29-26.

This is the third win for Tunisia (titleholders) who had already beaten Cape Verde (33-21) and Côte d'Ivoire 48-24 and booked their ticket for the second round.

Cape Verde also made it to the Main Round stage that will feature two groups of four teams each.

The top two teams in each of the main round groups will then face off in the semi-finals and then final.

The teams which do not make the main round will play off for 9-16 place in the President’s Cup, while the four teams who do not reach the semi-finals will play off for 5-8 place.

The overall winners of the championship will book their place directly to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, while the second and third-placed teams qualifying through to the 2020 Olympic Qualification
Tournaments to be held in April.

Additionally, the top four teams will earn a spot at the 2021 Men's IHF World Championship in Egypt.
