BY ANDREW EKEJIUBA

Nigeria’s U18 team capped their impressive performance at the ongoing International Handball Federation (IHF) challenge trophy with a ticket to represent the continent in the intercontinental championship.

The Nigeria side under the tutelage of Coach Emeka Nnamani started the tournament in Congo on a sound note getting a victory against Burundi, Congo and Zambia.

They defeated Guinea narrowly in their final game on Friday with a 37-36 win and apart from having a 100 per cent record in the tournament in Congo, they also secured their passage to the intercontinental competition.

The intercontinental competition is slated to take place in Ivory Coast.
