Tunisia, aiming to win a 10th Men’s African Volleyball Championship in their capital Tunis, completed a clean sweep of qualifying wins at El Menzah Sports Palace today.
The hosts, defending the title they secured in 2017, won their fourth and final Pool A match against the Democratic Republic of the Congo 25-17, 25-14, 25-14.
Tunisia also secured the title in 1967, 1971, 1979, 1987, 1995, 1997, 1999 and 2003.
Earlier in the day, Algeria won their second Pool A match, 25-14, 25-14, 25-13 against Chad.
Cameroon are proving the dominant force in Pool B, where they won their third match, beating Burundi 25-13, 25-21, 25-20.
Egypt finished their qualifying matches with three wins from four after today’s 25-21, 27-25, 25-22 triumph over Congo Republic.
Victory in their final Pool A match tomorrow against Botswana, who have yet to gain a point, would see Algeria progress along with the hosts.
Similarly in Pool B, victory over bottom team Burundi would see Congo Republic progress, assuming Cameroon can continue their winning run against Morocco.
