Havana, December 17 (RHC) – The Cuban handball team qualified this Friday for the IHF Youth Men’s World Championships in Croatia 2023 by securing one of the two tickets distributed in the American and Caribbean tournament hosted by Mexico City.
The four-letter artists defeated Guadalupe in the semi-final stage by a score of 36–24 and apart from qualifying, they made it to the final of the event.
In the game in question, the Cubans had a very distributed offense, as Lísván Mora scored six goals and Diocel Rondón, Samuel Cordís, and Macol Vázquez scored five each.
This Saturday, the cast led by Jover Hernandez will fight for the title against the United States, in a match in which both will expose their undefeated in the competition.
The Antilleans have featured a formidable offense in the tournament with 20 at the hands of men like scoring leader Macole Vazquez (27) and Samuel Cordies.
An average of 38 goals per game, as well as a defense that worked for 23.5, suggest the potential to prevail, although the North American performers have shown a higher standard than the rivals they have faced so far.
A win in the final meant, in addition to the gold medal, clinching the only spot in contention for the category’s Intercontinental Cup.
