FYROM’s national handball side will face Tunisia in the framework of the world handball championship which starts in Qatar.

The coach of the national team, Ivica Orban, said that his players are prepared for a victory and that Tunisia is the strongest handball team in Africa. “We have trained and we have prepared a strategy to achieve success”, said Orban.

This is the fourth appearance of the country in a world championship, but its participation in Qatar comes after ten years. FYR Macedonia is in group B in the framework of qualifying matches, along with Tunisia, Iran, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Austria. /ibna/
