Handball: Nigeria draws host Morocco for Africa Cup of Nations


The Golden Arrows of Nigeria have been drawn against Angola, host Morocco and Kenya in Group B of the Africa Men’s Handball Nations Cup which will be staged in Morocco from January 13, 2022.

The Coach Rafiu Salami tutored would have to be at their best to get past their biggest obstacle in the group, Angola who have won the competition twice in 2016 and 2018

Morocco’s best position in the Nation’s Cup is third position which they got in 2006 as they have steadily finished amongst the top 7 in the last five championships.

On paper, Kenya may be Nigeria’s easiest opponent as they have participated in the nation’s cup thrice with their best finish being 9th place which they attained in 2004 in Egypt.

The Nigeria Men Senior Handball team is currently on intensive camping in Abuja ahead of the championship with several of the 30 invited players already in camp.

The 30 players arrived Abuja for camping on Wednesday, December 1, 2021 after the executive board of the Handball Federation of Nigeria approved the list of players for preparation for the Nation’s Cup.

The Africa Men’s Handball Championship, which will commence from January 13 and will end on 23rd of January 2022, is the African qualifying tournament for the 2023 World Handball Championship in Poland and Sweden
