Egypt recovered from a game down to beat England and claim a third World Squash Federation (WSF) Women's World Team Squash Championship at Issy-les-Moulineaux in Paris today.
The Egyptians, winners of the biennial event in 2008 and 2012, were always favourite today given how their team consisted of the world's three highest ranked players.
But defending champions England proved difficult to topple, and gained the perfect start when world number four Laura Massaro shocked top ranked Nour El Sherbini.
The 2013 World Open winner lost the first game 11-9 but hit back superbly in the next three to triumph 3-1 in 49 minutes on the all-glass court at Palais Des Sports Robert Charpentie.
It marked her sixth win over El Sherbini in nine attempts.
This was as good as it got for the six-time World Team champions.
Nineteen-year-old world number three Nouran Gohar won 3-0 against Alisan Waters.
Second ranked Raneem El Welily then beat number 11 Sarah-Jane Perry in the decider, edging the crucial first game before taking the next two more comfortably for a 3-0 win.
"I have never played a decider for Egypt before and I was hoping I wouldn't have to," El Welily admitted afterwards.
"I didn't know what to expect.
"But I decided to be selfish - I didn't think of the team, only of myself, to stop the pressure getting to me.
"This was the tactic I planned - even if everything went wrong.
"I had to do a lot of running, but it worked out in the end.
"Overall, this is a fantastic team to be a part of."
Beaten semi-finalists France shared the bronze medal with Hong Kong to claim their first ever podium finish in 16 appearances since 1987.
United States claimed fifth place with a 2-0 win over Malaysia while New Zealand edged Australia 2-1 in the battle for seventh.
