African Youth Games: National women’s handball team plays against Burkina Faso in Algeria

Praia, Jul 26 (Inforpress) – Women’s handball national U18 team of Cabo Verde return to the field today to play against its counterpart Burkina Faso, in the third round game of the African Youth Championship, which takes place in Algiers, Algeria.

With two victories achieved in the first two games against Algeria and Cameroon, the Cabo Verdean squad is now seeking its third consecutive win in a game scheduled to 1:00 PM local time (11:00 AM in Cabo Verde).

The national coach, Jean Pierre Spencer, believes in another triumph of the Creole national team, although he admits the possibility of finding some difficulties against an opponent that he classifies as “very strong physically” given the good physique of its athletes, with some technical limitations.

Furthermore, Spencer said that Cabo Verde is focused on reaching the final in this African event, because he understands that the national team is already in a position to play for gold.
